Shelved in the attic

I always look with longing at the pictures of home libraries wishing I had the space to get the books out of the numerous boxes in the attic and garage and have them out on display. So I looked with real envy at Alain de Botton’s shelf-lined lounge in an interview in The Independent in which he boasts that he has 2,000 books and is buying more all the time. Lucky for him it looks like he can see what he has rather than try to remember what’s lurking in the corner with the bats up in the attic.
