At Last, My Bookshelf Has Come Along
Wow guys! Thanks so much for all the fantastic book (and drink!) suggestions. You're going to keep us very very busy!
And you couldn't have come through at a more perfect time. We are in full on slothful, summer, sulk under the ceiling fan and read ourselves into a far away land mode. If I could hibernate, I would. Really. But then you knew that already, didn't you?
We've got a stack of new (to us) books to read now and, drumroll please….
after THREE solid years of searching Goodwill and estate sales and thrift shops and Craigslist I have finally, FINALLY found the bookshelf of my dreams.
Ain't she a beauty?
It is really ridiculously hard to find a good quality, solid wood, sturdy bookshelf that doesn't require you to take out a home improvement loan, but I finally found her. She smells of crackly well loved pages. She's solid, smooth, comfortable and capable. She's worthy of all the hidden lands and secret hopes, mysteries untold, love lost and honor won, laughter and sorrow that she shall hold upon her shelves.
And um… she's looking rather full, is she not? After all those many piles and stacks of books were brought from their assorted corners and lined up together, it seems that ANOTHER bookshelf may soon be in order.
Dang. Guess I'll have to frequent the shops some more. Work. Work. Work A woman's work is just never done 😉
And you, what are YOU searching for?
