The hazards of re-arranging all your books
Self-Portrait 3
"The best thing --perhaps, in Shadow's opinion, the only good thing-- about being in prison was a sense of relief. The feeling that he'd plunged as low as he could plunge and he'd hit bottom. He didn't worry that the man was going to get him, because the man had got him. He was no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, because yesterday had brought it."

That's the second paragraph of Neil Gaiman's American Gods, and I'm already in love with this book. Damn books. Too distracting to organize efficiently.

Yeah, I have that problem, too.

Yeah, I noticed that you had a copy on your shelf last time I was at your place. I didn't even think about the obvious reasons you'd identify with Shadow's journey throughout the book.

I may have posted a quote from that book a few months back, when I read it. I'm not sure. But there's one in there about me, too. I'll have to get my own copy and find it. When you get to the passage about Shadow moving a couch from room to room by himself, that's it.
