Paging Ezra Klein

You can buy books by the foot from the Strand Bookstore. Do you want to convey that you are the type of person who collects art books? Perhaps that you treasure the classics? Or do you wish to imply that you read in several languages? The possibilities for self-invention are endless. Incidentally, most of these books were probably scavenged by the homeless and sold to stores. I suppose that's better than digging through trash for aluminum cans, so at least someone benefits from this gross exchange.
