Last weekend I moved from our house to rented premises – to allow us to have some reconstruction done – and although we are somewhat settled, there are still several boxes of books to be unpacked and organized! Because so much stuff has been accumulated over the years, I have almost forgotten how much space it all takes up!
Doing the actual work does take up time and energy, not always in great supply after a full day, and certainly not assisted when the electricity goes off!
And of course it seems as if there aren’t enough shelves so I will have to get some more made – which amuses everyone at home to no end! I guess it is all made worse by my trying to put together non-fiction, children’s stuff, mysteries/thrillers/crime (quite a lot), African literature, books on Ghana, and also other novels. And I really, really filled the shelves, as you can see.
Then there are all the “To be read” books which I usually try to keep separate so they stand as a reminder of all I have in store for the future!
