"Как долго я тебя искала..."

Mood: dusty

I own far too many books. It just took me an hour to literally dig through all of the bookcases and boxes and old backpacks to find a single book (Winter of Fire by Sherryl Jordan). I also found a whole slew of books I'd like to reread - or even read in a few cases - which was rather thrilling. But still. I own too many books. And there's no way in hell I'd ever get rid of a single one.

My new goal in life is to have a library in my future home. It will be a room dedicated to reading and writing: comfortable chairs, good natural lighting, and, best of all, bookshelves covering every wall. It will be paradise. Why yes, I am a bookworm, thank you for noticing.

We got 8" of snow last night, I've made a small (practically microscopic) amount of progress on my Peace Corps application, all that searching through books has resulted in a massive allergy attack, I seriously love my new default userpic, and this is my 3333rd LJ entry since July 2, 2001. What?

My new goal in life is to have a library in my future home.

I have a similar aspiration. Right now, I have a study with a futon, computer desk and four bookshelves. Still, I want a library with a reading chair and perhaps a glass of some sort of very distinguished looking liquor.

I have three (tall) bookcases here in Chicago, and three more in Missouri. Plus various books packed away. I'd LOVE to organize my books (by alphabetical order of author, followed by chronological order in a series...) and consolidate my books in one room. Alas, at this rate, it won't be happening for another 5+ years.

The distinguished looking liquor would, of course, have to be sherry. Or maybe cognac. Or, since I don't drink, water with dye in it. ;)

I agree with your second paragraph COMPLETELY. I already told my friends to tell my future husband to make sure our house has a room that can be my library. I'm sure you own a bunch more books than me, but my poor room cannot handle what I have already.

hahaha, that's fantastic! The kids can just sleep in a drawer or in the living room or something... my books deserve a room all of their own. ;)

Yeah, my books kind of overwhelm my room here in Chicago and my apartment in Missouri. My parents have a similar problem - they both have a ton of bookcases. I mean, we have at least one bookcase in every room in the house (minus the bathrooms at the kitchen, although there IS a shelf in the kitchen... cough). Okay, I'm feeling ridiculously nerdy (BOOOKS!!!), so I think I'll shut up now.

... and go read ;)

I know, right? I've been journaling online since the 6th grade - 1999. It really has been a decade. yikes!

funny thing is, when I'm in Missouri, we never seem to get the sort of weather Chicago does. then when I'm in Chicago, Missouri gets all the storms and floods and whatnot. obviously I have good timing.
