Don't Burn the Book!

One thing about finishing school is that you forget that other people have to go to school. Call me selfish (probably) but after 13 years it's just so good to let it all go! I suppose book lists need to be filled and read, ready for the year ahead (listen to my rhyming). I could never understand people who resold their novels that they used for Literature or English though. It seems like such a waste! After all the time spent meeting t and getting to know the book, to say goodbye seems too sad. I love finding my parents' old books from their school days and seeing their name written in pencil in the yellowing pages and odd scribble in the margins. It makes me think of them when they were in school and that's both an interesting an weird thought. But it's something so strange to think that you're holding the same book that they were when they were our age. Almost transcendental but maybe that's too far? And the people who burn them after! Desecration!
