Over the holidays, I learned about Susan Cain’s book Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking .
Being exceptionally introverted and a tightwad to boot, I decided to borrow it from the Vancouver Public Library. The VPL’s web site informed me that it had over twenty copies of the book and more were on order. When I placed a hold on the next available copy, I found myself in queue position 256. It’s comforting to know that I have company in this noisy friendly city.
We introverts get lost in the noise issuing from the activities of our extroverted neighbours. But we are there in the quiet places. Like libraries.
