A cento poem

I'm going to steal an idea, so here ya go.

As for my bookshelf?
Quite a few of us, I suspect, like books more than we like people.
Could do a lot worse, I think.
That was maybe not the best choice of words.
Scratch that.
Lows and Highs ...
Buying lots of used books at library sales.
And guess what?
I feel better already.
That is all.

Thanks to Adjunct Kait (of Did we do anything important today?) for the idea. Hooray for fun juxtapositions.

Side notes: I actually haven't been to any library sales in a long time, and, in any case, I was in a strange mood while composing the poem. Don't read too much into it...
