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?”
All the books that I have read and am keeping are on the huge bookcase in the livingroom where anyone can see them. All the books I’ve not yet read are on the shelves in the bedroom. This is simply because I don’t have room for all of them in the livingroom and I like to keep them separate for ease of choosing – if I want an old favourite, it’s in the livingroom, and if I want a new, unread adventure, it’s in the bedroom, waiting for me.
Xander has his own bookcase in his bedroom too, and it’s just as crammed with books as mine, even though he’s only two years old. Some of his books were mine when I was small, and I kept them…
When I’ve finished reading a book, it either gets moved into the livingroom (if I’m keeping it) or gets passed on to my sister, or a friend, or to a local library. I keep relatively few books these days, due to lack of space, and usually only keep certain authors and series, in hardback more often than not.
