That’s how many books are due to arrive here any minute now. They are packed in 140 “large boxes” (Large is such a relative term. I have visions of 140 refrigerator-sized boxes lining the walls and covering all the empty floor space). The representative from the book company will arrive with the books (I don’t think he will be in a box) to help expedite the shelving process. Thanks to the wonder of modern technology, they are already in our computer catalogue, so that as soon as they enter the room they can be checked out; no one will have to hand-key them into the computer, or create MARC records for them, or even stick bar-codes on them. If this is all I manage to post today, it will be because I am busy caressing, smelling, and fantasizing about reading all these glorious new books.
