The Library



Here's a recent digital shot of the actual Booksteve's Library (or a portion thereof anyway) that I wanted to share with all of you. As a reminder, when my wife and I bought this house seven years ago (and we ARE now completely cleared of foreclosure thank you very much!), it had a good-size dining room but like most Americans, we eat in front of the TV set. Thus, we put nineteen bookcases of varying sizes around the room, added a few discarded spinner racks from stores in which I had worked and voila! The fact that we've had to curtail our bookbuying habits in recent years (as well as selling off quite a bit) is probably a blessing or we would have needed to annex the living room as well. As it is, we have 6 small bookcases in there as well as 4 more upstairs! Yes, it's more than a bit cluttered and every single guest we've ever had has said something along the lines of, "Wow! I've never seen so many books!" Still, we wouldn't have it any other way!
