Bookmarks XII, Infiltrating the Library System  
books were retrieved from a cabin in the countryside. the cabin was no longer in use. the cabin had no door. the books were leftovers from a book collection. the collection was made to prevent books from being thrown away. the collection was made to keep the books alive. in the cabin the books were telling stories about the people who had used the cabin, about the life of the cabin, about the man that collected the books. in the books names were written with a graceful hand, with childish letters, where dedications from friends, lovers, sisters, fathers.
