The writer Umberto Eco belongs to that small class of scholars who are encyclopedic, insightful, and nondull.
He is the owner of a large personal library (containing thirty thousand books), and separates visitors into two categories: those who react with “Wow! Signore, professore dottore Eco, what a library you have ! How many of these books have you read?” and the others - a very small minority - who get the point that a private library is not an ego-boosting appendage but a research tool.
Read books are far less valuable than unread ones.
