A home without books is like a room without windows.” – H. G. Rickover
Maybe it’s because I’ve just finished Senge’s The Fifth Discipline, but I’ve begun to notice–more than I ever did before–who does and doesn’t have books featured prominently in their offices. I know I have a book obsession, so the shelves upon shelves of books stacked upon each other is part mental illness (a good one) and part practical learner. Yet, what does it say about someone with an office devoid of books?
I don’t have an answer. It’s just more a curious question.
