“I grabbed the closest box of books and heaved it onto my bed. It contained all the books I had read in Iraq. Dog-eared, with broken spines, speckled with dirt, food, and even a little blood, most of the copies were marked up with notes in the margins. The better the book, the worse it looked–that’s the way it should be. As I saw it, they were almost more like diaries than books.” Michael Anthony, CIVILIANIZED
