“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero
My brother-in-law has a summer house in Rehoboth, DE about a half hour from the beach.
He invited use there for a week's stay about 10 years ago.
I'm not a beach person (I'm sun burning just writing about it) so I stayed close to home when I was there.
He doesn't have a single bookcase or book in the house!!!
The house is sterile and boring. After two or three days I had read everything I brought.
I've never been back.
Hmm - let me think through my house:
Entry hall has books on the bench and table (shouldn't be there but they are)
Living room - small bookcase, books on every endtable
Dining room - homeschool bookcase
Kitchen - book on the kitchen counter (shouldn't be there)
Den - small bookcase along with the school books on the coffee table that should be back in the dining room
Laundry room - books to be returned to the library
Bathrooms - no books
Bedrooms - yep, books in every room - bookcases in each one even!
bedroom hallways - bookcases on empty walls
Garage - boxes of books that I need to bring to the library
basement - homeschooling books that I need to sell
So, in my whole house, it's only the bathrooms that don't have books.
What? No books in the throne room? :laugh:
They are brought in as needed.
Yeah, yeah. The baptism rooms where you wait your turn to get dunked; the 'bride's room' before a wedding, the interrogation room where the cops try to brainwash you into a confession.... such soulless places.
That's where the Cabelas and Bass Pro catalogs go, silly. :smilewinkgrin:
Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode.
They do make rolled paper now...
The book gets flagged....
