What's on YOUR Bookcase?

"A library represents the mind of its collector, his  
fancies and foibles, his strength and weakness, his  
prejudices and preferences. Particularly is this the 
case if, to the character of a collector, he adds -- or 
tries to add -- the qualities of a student who wishes to 
know the books and the lives of the men who wrote 
them. The friendships of his life, the phases of his 
growth, the vagaries of his mind, all are represented."

~ William Osler

(Or her mind, as the case may be. ;)
