Yesterday, our new bookshelf finally arrived (three weeks longer than estimated delivery time) and the piles of books that were hiding humongous dust balls in the corner now have a new home where we can actually SEE them. We’ve already discovered books we forgot we had, which if you’re a bookworm like me is a little like meeting a long lost friend…
When I was younger, my mum used to send me up to tidy my room, which always looked like a bombshell had hit it (Rasmus has been slowly training me to be tidier but it’s not always successful). A few hours later she’d come up to check on progress and I’d be sitting on the floor in front of the bookshelf, surrounded by the same mess, engrossed in a book. “Tidying my room” had become “organising my books into alphabetical/genre/colour order” and then I had found one I loved and dangerously flipped it open, and two hours later, what was I supposed to be doing again??
With the arrival of the new bookshelf, a little clearing out had to happen. I have a small box of books to give away to whoever would like them. If you live nearby (Luxembourg, Belgium) we can arrange a handover point (bench in the park, I’ll be wearing a red carnation…)
If you’re further away but do really want one we need to strike a deal. Because postage is just plain crazy expensive here. But I’d be willing to brave the queue at the post office if you send me something in return – either a good book you’ve read or something equally lovely 🙂 Swapsies!
And while you’re here, any current reading recommendations?
