Against 'Free Choice'.

Entering a public library
is nearly as bad entering a supermarket.
So many books, so much choice - paralysis.

In a nearby French village there is a little bookcase
mounted on a wall - just a small cupboard, really,
with glazed doors - in which people
(English, Dutch, French - even German, Danish and Finnish readers)
leave books - maybe taking others out, or not.
Because of the limited choice
I have found by chance dozens of great books there
that I would never have noticed,
found or chosen in a 'proper' public library.
