“I am unpacking my library. Yes, I am. The books are not yet on the shelves, not yet touched by the mild boredom of order. I cannot march up and down their ranks to pass them in review before a friendly audience. You need not fear any of that. Instead, I must ask you to join me in the disorder of crates that have been wrenched open, the air saturated with the dust of wood, the floor covered with torn paper, to join me among piles of volumes that are seeing daylight again after [two] years of darkness, so that you may be ready to share with me a bit of the mood – it is certainly not an elegiac mood, but rather, one of anticipation – which these books arouse in a genuine collector.”

Walter Benjamin

Unpacking my library : Architects and their books, p. 2
