We Built A Library. . .Twice

April 9, 2021

We moved into our home about 9 years ago. I don’t remember the date. But, Facebook does. It showed me this picture of our library that we setup shortly after moving in. I like books. My lovely wife likes books. My kids love books. We own a lot of books.

We also have lots of computers. And Kindles. And, of course cell phones, both Apple and Android. We have multiple ISPs. So, we have access to lots of electronic reading material.

But, we also have books.

Lots of books.

Our books span the gamut. We have Westerns, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Romance, Reference, biographies, Young Adult, Children, Mysteries, Technical, non-Fiction, Historical, Religious, Comedies, Plays, Picture books, Hiking, Camping, Classics, boring books, thick, thin, small, large, Art, Photography, Computer, Landscaping, Woodworking, Graphic novels, Travel, Dictionaries, Scout. (Admit it, you quit reading a couple of lines ago.)

Recently, we ended up with a free room. When you have eight kids at the time you move into your house, and three of them leave, you end up with extra rooms. We converted one to the library. I didn’t think it would take that much room. I was wrong.

I enjoy reading online, but my first love is and always will be the dead tree editions.

Hopefully you have plenty of books in your space.

Stay safe
