Petrarch on bibliomania

A helpful response in the debate between Petrarch (what’s the difference between a duck? One of its legs is both the same) might go something like this:

Petrarch. I have indeed a great quantity of books.
Critic. Leave them in a warehouse about 45mins cycle-ride from your house, and get rid of any you haven’t touched in the last two years.
