  6. to myself, I slouhd have qualified my statement concerning some reference books. Thanks for pointing that out. I do agree that we don’t need to read some reference books (e.g. encyclopedias, dictionaries, Bible concordance) from cover to cover to own them’ (but using them a lot would mean that you really own them). As for non-fiction, well, I had read lots of biographies, autobiographies, and compilations of travel stories to name just a few examples of non-fiction from cover to cover in the past. So this concept also applies to many forms of non-fiction. Having said this, the main point of my blog post was simply this: Owning a book goes beyond buying it. I know that many people are mere book collectors, who delight in the act of building a private book collection, without them having to read/use the books they have amassed through the years.
