I remember reading an article in MSNBC.com several years ago that one need not worry about buying a book and leaving it on the shelf collecting dust. Because come one day, that book will find you, and you will be glad that it did.
That article in a sense had set me off book-hunting and if you know me well enough, you'd know that I have been book-hunting ever since. The article was in a way special to me and I berated myself for not saving a copy. I tried searching for it before but failed. I tried again today and I finally found it. I was so pleased.
If you are interested to read it, you can find it here.
