You know, until today, I had never really understood why people go to libraries to study or work - I'm much more a fan of the method where you duck in, grab your books, and study somewhere else. But since the library's open hours don't overlap very well with my preferred working hours, I had to check out the books I wanted so I could do the research after the library closed. Since I'm writing a paper about a particular cross-linguistic phenomenon and how it relates to other specific features of my several test languages, this means I just checked out 15 books. And not neat little paperbacks, either - hugeass reference grammars.

Never have I been so glad that the library is just a few buildings over.
