One Book

I got "meme'd" by Deathlok. Is that the right terminology? Amyway I'm not sure how these things go, but here's the meme:

"Books are scarce in the world. They are illegal in some provinces. They are not easily replaced, if not impossible to replace if lost in many if not most circumstances. If you can replace a book or buy one, it is usually through the black market at astronomical costs that you cannot afford. Yet you have been able to maintain one of the best collections in the world. If your entire library was about to burn up and you could only have one* book to take with you other than the Bible, what would that be and why?"

Unfortunately I can't tell you what the name of the book is because it is in Japanese. It is an absolutely gorgeous book of Japanese prints. It's not the only book of Japanese prints I own, but the book secreted anyway from a friend's father's library. She was playing at being a literary "Robin Hood." Knowing her father didn't really appreciate the book, she decided to send it along to a more deserving home. Her thought was so sweet, and the book so lovely, I couldn't bear to part with it - even over my over my signed Bill Griffith Zippy books!

Sorry, I can't tag anyone. None of my friends have blogs. (Deathok's already mem'd the ones who do.)
