I used to laugh at my mum when she would occasionally buy a duplicate of a book she already owned. Because I could remember nearly every sentence of every book I had ever read. Now she has a notebook with a list in her bag and I am considering doing the same because I have started buying duplicates.

That anxiety you speak of - strikes a chord when I sit and think of all the books in the world that I want to read and realise that even if I do nothing else but read books until I die, I will never get to read all the ones that I want to. Being pretty much self-educated, the mental aquisition of books is my way of learning.

And the time thing - oh dear - don't get me started. We've not had the telly for 4 weeks what with the refubishing going on in the living room - and I don't miss it one little bit. Well except for Doctor Who, which we forgot to tape last night anyway. I look at all the stuff I'm doing now, I'm still not reading, and now I am getting worried about having the telly back because it will suck up time that I have not got.

I wonder if the episode we missed is up on Wikipedia yet...
