At the local library, Signal Mountain Library, there is a huge book sale room in the basement dedicated to homeless books; books that have either run away or have been tossed to the curb by literary dandies who never truly commit to a volume, but instead jump from one to the next…like a lovelorn and cavalier soul always about cracking the virgin text. I’m sure a few of the tomes end up there because some lover of books has simply run out of room and must part with a few or the shelves shall collapse! No matter the history, be it pristine or randy, sad or pedantic…a few volumes came home with me yesterday.
