#BlogFlash2012: Day Fifteen – Books


A 22-foot bookcase extended the length of my old office. Two rows of books filled the four long shelves, the books arranged by genre with favorites nearest my desk. In my office, surrounded by books, I felt comfortable, secure, as though I belonged.

I am still surrounded by books, but they belong to the Harvard professors who own the condo we’re renting. I’ve never inhabited their worlds, and many are written in Arabic, a language I do not know. For the first time in my life, I feel alienated by books. In this borrowed office, a part of me is missing. Without my books, I am lost.
