Having a room of my own, full of books, an armachair and a fireplace would be heaven! Actually, when hubby and I bought our new flat we looked for a three-bedroom one so I could use the third bedroom as a reading/studying room. At the moment a dear friend of ours is living with us and I don't think we'll arrange the room for a couple of years but it's good to know I'll finally have my personal study room. My books are scattered through three different bookshelves in the living room (I'll post a pic soon) and in one of the bedrooms, and some are still in some boxes in the garage....choosing which ones I wanted to keep with me has been pretty hard!
Our local library is well stashed and it's connected to the other libraries in the city so you can have almost all the books you wan. The only fault is that, being an Italian library, it has books in Italian only...and since I prefer to read in the original language I use the library only when the original books are not available or too expensive through amazon and ebay.Contessa
: I've already tried bookcrossing and I must confess I don't like it at all for three main reasons. First, people here tend to bookcross only books which are not woth reading, like cooking recipes or those super-cheap essays on Atlantis or aliens. Second, if you find a book you like you can't keep it and it can be very annoying, especially when it's a very old book that is not published any more. Three, most of the people bookcrossing have no respect for the books so you have to read books which are in the worst condition. Shelfari
: I do have a shelf there but I should update it...my screen name is Dimber or Dimberaidiel (I can't remember right now), as usual
