Elyria, our book fairy, overlooks the reference books and art books (in stacks beyond her feet) on the ledge by the ceiling. I'm dreaming of bookshelves again. I've been looking at a site that posts a bookcase photo daily. The current fad to place books of similar color together to be pleasing to the eye is one that shocks my Dewey Decimal System sensibilities. I couldn't do that to my books; it would drive me mad. I like to know where all my books are and be able to go directly to one and pluck it from the shelf (in theory!) However, I can grudgingly admire the artistic beauty of color-coordinated books.
( Isn't this beautiful? )
