Hey, They're Talking about Me!

"'Oh,' said Mma Ramotswe. 'There are many, many books. And all the time, more books are coming. It is difficult to read them all.'

"'It is impossible to read them all,' said Mma Holonga. 'Even those very clever people at the University of Botswana...have not read everything.'

"'It must be sad for them,' observed Mma Ramotswe reflectively. 'If it is your job to read books and you can never get to the end of them. You think that you have read all the books and suddenly you see that there are some new ones that have arrived. Then what do you do? You have to start all over again.'"

-Alexander McCall Smith, The Full Cupboard of Life.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
