i keep trying to stop
I keep trying to stop buying any more books until our space magically expands and we have more places to put them.
You can stop laughing. We know I’m uncontrollable, especially when it comes to book acquisitions. I brought
three four into our home this past week (on a permanent basis) but am pleased I sent four back to the library today (umph they were heavy!). Anyway, I’m rereading and reading my way through all that is in our apartment. I decided to start with a big one and think that may lead the theme of the summer. I’m going to read as many books that feature trains or the rail road as I can. I have a collection of them. I’ve started with a reread of Atlas Shrugged in honour of a friend’s daughter’s first birthday.
There aren’t many words for today. I’m reading, I’m cleaning, I’m catching up. Check goodreads for more detailed reviews in the future. In the meantime here are their covers after the jump you can find author, title, and all that fun information, it all links to goodreads.

Ha, ha, ha. I grew up in a house where every shelf was doubled and piles of books lay around on the floor for lack of a place to put them. My father’s music collection mirrored my mother’s book collection, and was mounted on most of a wall, plus overflowed onto the tops of the bookcases. Then there were *his* books — Chumash in 23 volumes, Siddur in 7, Hagaddah in 2, but he had 3 of them… Braille is bulky.
When I think about decluttering, the books are never first on the list. I’d dump all my kids toys before I’d touch the books. You can never have too many books. And I stand by that.
only doubled? ;) v’omein on the “never too many books” i fear for the shelves when the magically embiggen. single shelving won’t last long around me. ;)
