They get other people to build their "personal" book collections. The very thought sends a shock of pain through my bibliophile's heart. The things I could do with all those "beautiful bookshelves" that will now be filled willy-nilly for mere decoration!

I actually know an interior decorator who buys libraries of books for some of his clients. I've heard that they can be purchased "by the foot" to fill shelves. Extraordinary.
