I think my posts have been getting a little too long on the blog. I am constantly trying to edit myself but, sometimes, I just run away with words…
Today I’ll be brief. I promise.
I’ve been thinking about physical attachments to books. I may have mentioned once or one million times that I live in a small apartment. There is simply not enough room to keep a massive library (though I dream of one…like in Beauty and the Beast, where the ladders fly across the shelves and I can sing as I browse.)
I came to the conclusion that I would not have a problem donating almost all of the books in my library.
As I have come to know a few authors recently, I have several books that are signed specifically to me and I would most certainly keep those.
But other than that, I only have a few select books that I feel the need to have in my home. I’m not a re-reader. I just like the idea that those books are near me.
So tell me. Do you have a physical attachment to books? Are there books you need to carry with you always? Are there books you need to have in close proximity so that you can read them again or do you simply need to know they are there?
