What this tells us is:

no matter how much I might like libraries, it would probably not be safe for me to be left in charge of the organizational layout of one!

It also tells us that I still have my very old university text books out on public display, mixed in along with my car books and manuals. It even indicates that I let my hippy/alternative persona out at the bookstore every once in a while.

And I can even boast my own little collection of words amongst the published tomes, courtesy of a dear husband who thought it would be a great gift to collect my Cerebral Muttering emails together in a bound edition.
Bless the man who knows his way to a bookbinder, it can do wonders for your ego.

On that note, I can issue the final warning – the next “What’s On The Bookshelf” will be a double depth marathon. Read it at your peril.

  1. I am jealous. I would love to be able to have all of my books on shelves, and accessible. But as it is, most of them are in storage. Banished until I can afford to move out of my parents’ house (again). Very sad.

    But yay for libraries!
