Astronomers, like all scientists, spend a large fraction of their time reading and writing--reading the books and journals which report the work of their colleagues and writing up the results of their own researches. Dr. Virginia Trimble's bookshelves are striped in alternating layers of reprints of her own papers and book by other astronomers.
