My dad reads a lot. He always has multiple books he’s reading at the same time and they are placed throughout his house, ready and waiting for him to pick them up again. He also reads at least two newspapers a day, and magazines, and material on his iPad and his computer.
My mom reads a lot too.
Between the two of them, they have amassed an impressive library, one that cannot be contained by “shelves” or “rooms.”
So, um, yeah. I do this a lot too.
I didn’t even realize until this moment that my living room makeover matches my dad’s library. In real life, his walls are greener, but in the picture above the color looks very similar to the backdrop of my own shelves.
Shout out to my mom, Barbara Tracy, for sending the photos of the overflowing book collection, and my dad in his natural habitat.
