Yes.

Buying books is immensely comforting. Maybe I won’t read them immediately, but they make me feel so much better whenever I’m sad and blue. Just their presence, it’s like having more to look forward to.

Shady Characters: The Secret Life of Punctuation, Symbols & Other Typographical Marks by Keith Houston

AmazonBarnes & Noble @ iBookstore # IndieboundPowell’s

"With zeal and rigor, Keith Houston cracks open the &, the #, the †, and more—all the little matryoshka dolls of meaning that make writing work. Inside, we meet novelists, publishers, scholars, and scribes; we range from ancient Greeks to hashtagged tweets; and we see the weird and wonderful foundations of the most successful technology of all time."
—ROBIN SLOAN, author of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore
