A book-lover's pleasures

My favorite bookstore, Books & Books in Coral Gables, Fla., prints on its bookmarks this pithy line by Jorge Luis Borges:
I cannot sleep unless I am surrounded by books.
There's a bit more of Borges at the start of this engaging piece about the ups and downs of those whose lives are defined, in part, by print on the page. It's from New West.
