One in one out?
One of my dilemmas at the moment is being forced to face up to the reality which is that I will never have the room to house all my books. My two overloaded bookshelves are never truly representative of the books I own but have served a function for the past few years.
But now maybe it is the time to get to a position where it is a case of one in and one out with new books passing old ones. I am still very much undecided about it and the hoarding instinct is very strong.
Plus it doesn’t help when you see images of the Maastricht bookstore, in today’s Guardian, which reminds you powerfully of how beautiful books can make a space look.
