100 Words – Whose Books?

Smiley has a large bookcase of borrowed books. They were placed in chronological order of when he obtained them. He tried sorting them by color, height, subject but none of those satisfied his sense of collection.

On the inside cover of each book is a yellow post-it note with the name of the original owner and the date it was borrowed. You see, Smiley has never bought a book in his life.

He proudly refers to himself as a low-buck bibliophile. His friends prefer the term biblioclept. Smiley had to look that word up. He was shocked, offended and amused.
