My mom came across this quote in a book she was reading several years ago, and I just had to share it with you because it seems to describe our house and bookshelves.
. . . He points out that when he removes one book from a shelf the others maliciously spread themselves to fill the hole before another can be inserted, and we even entertain the idea that our library has pups when our backs are turned. It stands to reason that we couldn’t afford to buy all the books we seem to own, but they must come from somewhere, and we don’t approve of stealing so it isn’t that.
