Excerpt



"There are three thousand four hundred and twelve books here," Gordy said. "I know because I counted."

"Okay, now you're officially a freak," I said.

"Yes, it's a small library. It's a tiny one. But if you read one of these books a day, it would still take you almost ten years to finish."

"What's your point?"

"The world, even the smallest parts of it, is filled with things you don't know."

--Sherman Alexie, THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY OF A PART-TIME INDIAN
