Bibliolust the Last

I first started my Bibliolust posts in September 2008. That means this one would be the 48th — and I think four years is enough. It isn’t that I don’t lust after as many books. To the contrary, my use of ebook readers and increasing consumption of ebooks means it is often easier to lust. […]
