Is it ever possible to have too many books?
It is when you run out of shelves as we have. We have books stacked sideways, backways, front ways, any ways that you can think of.
So we’re having to install an extra shelf into one of our bookcases. We still have stacks and stacks everywhere. I keep saying we need to sort through our books and give away some of the ones that we don’t use, but that’s always easier said than done. I just can’t bring myself to give away books. I did pretty well listing a bunch of them on Paper Back Swap before we moved to our new apartment one year ago, but we still have scads too many.
I have a feeling that it won’t get any better as Katie and I get older. We’re both big book/reading/writing geeks. We just need to buy a house with a library room. All built in shelves and comfy seats and writing desks. Hopefully with lots of cleverly disguised places to hide all our shiny tech toys. A beautiful marriage between old library-ness and technological fun.
