SOME people have been giving me a hard time about my seriously overwhelming book collection, which is in the process of being sorted and boxed and carted over to the new apartment.  This weekend we bought and assembled 4 bookcases, and I brought 1 from home.  
What can I say?
A wee bit of a book buying fetish
(I am since reformed, and a frequent visitor to the local library)
coupled with an English major yields quite a number of books!
Apparently I'm rather attached, and was loathe to even get rid of Caddie Woodlown, Mother Goose's Illustrated Nursey Rhymes, or Confessions of a Shopaholic.
I maintain that whether I will read these books again or not,
and make for a very cozy home.

This quote reminds me of you (and me too): "I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves." - Anna Quindlen
