Phantoms on the Bookshelves - James Salter, Jacques Bonnet, Sian Reynolds Jacques Bonnet is a French art historian with a collection of over 40,000 books. In this brief book he discusses the unique challenges that possessing so many books creates and the passions that drive a serious bibliophile. My own modest collection of 6,000 pales in comparison, but it is refreshing to encounter someone dealing with similar issues on a grander scale. How do you organize the books? How do you move them when you have to relocate? How do you answer the inevitable questions: have you read them all? how did you acquire them all? why not just have them all on a kindle?

And yes, I have already gone on-line to track down three books Bonnet mentioned that I need.
