When I visit someone’s house—I make a beeline for their book shelf. What’s there? What do they read? What do the books say about them?
What do your books say about you?
Are you a book snob? Do you line up your beautiful intellectual books for everyone to see, but hide your less seemly books under your bed? Come on tell the truth :)
I will admit I do have a few snobby books—Paradise Lost and The Divine Comedy to name a few—but I have every intention of reading them. I do—I really do :) My book shelf reads like a hodge-podge of styles, genres, authors. I’m an equal opportunity book lover and I display it for all to see.
I have a theory that most writers love books. They don’t display them for show. They read them. They share them. They love them! My sister calls me a Book Whore—so I guess I’m the opposite of a Book Snob.
What about you?
I also DO NOT read in my garden dressed in pearls and taffeta. More like couch, pajamas, and chocolate.
