Things I Have a Lot of: BOOKS
May 7, 2009 § 1 Comment
I have vivid childhood memories in general. I just remember my childhood very well. And I remember sisterly arguments being a major part of that (we are the best of friends now). One of my sister’s biggest pet peeves was and is reading over her shoulder (I share that). Her nose was almost always buried in a book and it drove me mad because I wanted to play. But as the old adage goes, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Thus, my love of reading was born, and now I have too many books that I don’t really know what to do with because my apartment is never big enough to host them all.
Most of us don’t have space in our house for a library. I think that’s my dream, to have an actual room devoted to books. But the next apartment I am moving into, in Illinois, is actually quite large – the previous tenant, in the main room, had a full-size pool table, couch, twin-size bed, and other scattered furniture, comfortably.
No, no library for me still, but perhaps a creative way to store books.
I’ll figure it out and let you know what I do… and I will concede that my sister is still the book queen.
