A few of my favorite things
One of my goals in life is to someday have my very own room dedicated just to books. The walls will be lined with shelves, and I will have a library ladder, a window seat, and lots of big, comfy floor cushions so I can sprawl out and read.
In the meantime, I really shouldn’t get any more books until I can move to a place that has more shelf space. But alas, I have no willpower, and just picked up a few more books from the local library’s used book sale. Bad Kari. Think I have a problem?
Once upon a time, these were organized with fiction on one side of the room, and non-fiction on the other. That lasted a few months, until the quantity of books exceeded my shelves’ carrying capacity. Hey, I’ve only broken a shelf once. And before someone asks, I’ve probably read at least 2/3 of those but I’m not quite sure. One day I’ll do a tally. For what it’s worth, there are over 800 books crammed onto those shelves–a lot are double-layered to maximize space. It’s a far cry from the 2000+ I used to have, but I’ll get back there someday.
