Next time I build a house, I'm going to make sure it includes a library. Our house, which does not have a library, has books in every room.
The living room.
And my bedside table.
The kids' room, on E and Z's side.
On M's side.
And in the closet (this portion of the closet M refers to as his "office" and is probably the closest thing we have to a dedicated book room).
The only rooms that don't have books in them are the bathrooms––I've never understood the concept of books in the bathroom (although I do read in the tub––I just don't store by books in there).
Wouldn't it be nice, though, to have a whole room big enough to hold all the books, where you could organize them all by subject, or author, or color (it drives C crazy when I organize books by color)? With a nice cozy reading chair or two?
