The most important step in becoming acclimated to a newfound library is discovering an area of your own. A bond will emerge when you meet your favorite seat for the first time. You will be despondent when others take up residence in your territory. But your heart will swell with pride and relief on the occasions you swing your cardigan over the chair's back. A desk hidden away in the stacks, alcoves, or corners is prime real estate. Lamplight merging with dimness and the smell of wood and old books are favorable conditions for readers/writers. Thus, competing for your favorite nook is a battle on an intellectual level.
