"A good library is filled with mostly unread books. That’s the point. (...) My library serves as a visual reminder of what I don’t know."

IMHO same effect can be achieved better and cheaper by putting up a large corkboard and sticking cards to it, each containing the name of a concept or a field of knowledge you realized you know nothing about.

I prefer my library to consist of books 1) I've committed myself to read, and 2) I've read already and want to keep around for reference.
