Weekend Still Shot: Books, bowl

This is one shelf (of fifteen) of our hallway’s built in bookcase. I spent a couple of hours on Wednesday morning organizing our entire library of books…(wait for it)….by color. Internet, meet the Green Shelf.

Does the fact that L gave me his blessing to do this even though it makes him visibly cringe every time he sees it mean that he really, really, really loves me? Yes. Yes, it does.

Will there be a post about this later including pictures of all the shelves and a story that morphs into a Metaphor About Life? Yes. Yes, I think so.

And I think this sums up why we are friends.

Oi. I am the daughter of a Librarian. I fully admit that all of our books are still in boxes, but this just seems wrong. Very, very wrong. I’m glad it makes you happy, though.

I think that you should write it up and submit it to Real Simple – seems like something that others might do as well. I dig it!

I’m with Katy. How you gonna find the sequel to anything?

Well, Ginny, that’s a no brainer: if it’s a sequel to a green book she’ll just make a green cover to go over the sequel.
What a beautiful library this would make! Can’t wait to tell my former boss (Director of Millsaps College Library, retired). He loves good art!
