Booking Through Thursday – Visual


btt button

So … the books that you own (however many there may be) … do you display them proudly right there in plain sight for all the world to see? (At least the world that comes into your living room.)
Or do you keep them tucked away in your office or bedroom or library or closet or someplace less “public?”

I haven’t got much room for books in the living room, so the only book on display there is The Bible (as a statement of principle saying I'm not afraid to show my faith). But I have open shelves in my room with all the books I’ve got in the last decade or so, so my friends can see them there. The most important, however, is that I can see them, they keep my heart warm.

Then, I’ve got a lot of old books, like books I read as a child and fairytales and the most battered up books (not my fault, I’d already got them in a poor, poor state, and I feel sorry for them) stashed away in a cupboard, because there is no space anywhere else.

  2. In my last apartment I was able to have them all in the living room. But when we decided to move and get a bigger apartment, part of the reason was because my books needed more room. So now all four big bookshelves are in the guest room, but it's nicer that way. And I have room for a fifth shelf, just in case ;-)

  3. I have one bookcase dedicated to all my childhood reads. I can't part with them.
