A bookstore owner once told me how wonderful it was that I devoted a portion of my income to books. Though I agree with him, lately I’ve been scaling back. I’ve been question how much I need that book I see in the store window and I’ve reacquainted myself with the public library. Constant talk of recession has me skittish and entertainment is the easiest thing to scale back on.
Ironic, considering the medium I love (and the field I hope to break into) depends on people parting with their money in exchange for a stack of bound papers.
