This is what it usually looks like. I promise.As for the books…it’s a sickness. An addiction. As my friend Bill B. said, it’s “a gentle madness,” after a book by that title.Because, you see, several of the shelves you see in this photo are double stacked–two rows of books, one in front of the other. In the family room–two more bookshelves packed full. In each of the kids room and mine, one bookshelf each–full. The basement–seven more. Some of the basement bookshelves are small, but they’re full. And because they’re all full, I have about five boxes on storage shelves filled with books, too. Oh, and right next to my desk here, across the room from the shelves in the photo, another shelf with reference and writing books–almost full.I shouldn’t be admitting this.
