This is just wonderful.

Which is one good reason why librarians will never divulge what you have read to anyone, quite apart from acts of law prohibiting disclosure of computer records.

That seems a rather narrow way to assess even a small part of the history of someone.

Many people have to give up large parts of their book collections to move house/country, or to make room for the belongings of other family members. Also modern built homes rarely have the luxury of space to exhibit a fraction of the books owned or wanted. Plus all those borrowed library books that may have been so influential will never even appear on the readers home shelves.

That is absolutely wonderful and explains to me why I never declutter my books though I do declutter everything else...
