Is "A Lament for the Bookshelf,"
by British writer, Russell Smith. Check it out for tidbits such as
People come to see my minuscule new living room and say, hmm, you could have another foot and a half without that wall of bookshelves. True, but then you would never be able to distract yourself, while waiting for me to dress, by pulling down, at random, Weapons of World War II and 100 Erotic Drawings.
Smith challenges us to think about a home without physical books, and how much we would be missing!
Books serve more than one purpose. Decorate a room . . . decorate your mind!ReplyDelete
