Is there a book that you really covet?
The target of my longing is Mabberley’s Plant Book.
Why don’t I buy it? Well it is £50, which is quite a lot of money. But it isn’t a huge amount of money like say , this one.
And if I stopped buying books for a couple of months (as if!) I could easily put the necessary McGarrett aside.
And it certainly not really a lot of money compared to the amount I want it.
So why don’t I just buy it?
Well sometimes the pleasure is all in the desire.
