Quixote’s Basement (books for sale)

For those who aren’t familiar with the story, Don Quixote was a man who studied so many ancient books that his family thought he went mad. Obsessed with the idea that the world needed saving, he went from one adventure to another, famously remembered for “tilting windmills” (a metaphor for solving problems that did not really need solving).

Once when he returned from one of his adventures (bedridden from being beaten up, again), his niece conspired with the local priest to get rid of his library, thinking it was the source of his vigilante behavior. They burned most of the books in the back yard and sealed up the doorway to the library.

When he recovered, he went to where the door to the library had been, but could not find his books. When he asked his niece where his books were, she played dumb, and he eventually forgot about the books.

I have a large library of old books that are the basis for my own style of obsessive thinking but I have hidden them in my basement so no one will throw them away.

I have occasionally offered them for sale son anything with a line through it is gone. There are “occult” and spiritual books. If anyone has read this far, you may be interested in purchasing a books. Let’s talk. Individual books are more expensive than boxes. An offer for all my books would have the best price. I would consider a book burning (you may attend) for a reasonable fee.
