My heart became hot within me. As I mused, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: "O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am!"

I love library book sales — except that they never seem to have decent selections.
My dad, too, loves buying tons of books. You should see my parents' bedroom; they have a shelf from floor to ceiling, twelve to fifteen feet long — and he needs to stack tons of books on the floor, on the cedar chest, on nightstands, etc.
