The Dark Invader in the Bookshop and Other Cerise Penguins

The Dark Invader by Franz von Rintelen

"hominem unius libri timeo" - Latin proverb

 "Sometimes, looking at the many books I have at home, I feel I shall die before I come to the end of them, yet I cannot resist the temptation of buying new books. Whenever I walk into a bookstore and find a book on one of my hobbies — for example, Old English or Old Norse poetry — I say to myself, “What a pity I can’t buy that book, for I already have a copy at home." - Jorge Luis Borges
