Back to the books

I could direct you right to the NYT article about how books are becoming a great accessory, but Gawker's overview is so much, uh, shorter.

Or to quote H.S Canby from 1930- "There are not, as so many complain, too many good books.... There are too many books published only to be bought, too many books used as a 'color note,' books as paper weights, books for the baby to sit on, books kept as feeble proof that that someone has been educated, books that are everything but good books."
