My house is being overrun by books. Books are stacked neatly on shelves. Books are placed sloppily over the neatly stacked books on shelves. Books are on end tables and night-stands. Books are piled on the floor of the alcove in front of my children's bookshelf. I am seriously thinking of asking my contractor to build more shelves.
Naturally, then, I laughed when I read this piece in Newsday, about a former book-lover who is now a book-hater. Of course, I could never be a book-hater. As I've written on this blog before, I love books. I love the look and feel and smell of them. I just don't love the clutter. So, since neatness counts, ... this round goes to the Nook, making the current count:
Nook - 3; Book - 3! Stay tuned! See who takes the next round!
