This week we celebrated Read Across America Day. Despite the Dr. Seuss-related controversy, I love the idea of a day for making time to read and to encourage reading. So today’s photo is just one of my many, many, many bookshelves. I chose to photograph this one for purely aesthetic reasons. How can any reader resist such sumptuous leather-bound editions?
(And yes, I own a copy of Gone With the Wind; follow this link for my view on why.)
Someone on a home decorating site recently posted a photo of her bookcase, which was mostly empty except for a few knick-knacks, and asked for suggestions on what she should put on the bookshelves. I was one of the few people who suggested, “Books!” Of course.
