Growing up, there were books shelves in almost every room in our house. Nowadays, there are books in every room of my house, too, even if there aren’t shelves to store them on.
We don’t take our books back to the used book store. Perhaps we should, but we don’t. So we have this idea to get a bookshelf for our living room that is the free to good home shelf. This way any time our friends come over, they can leave with a book. Of course, knowing our friends, they’d start bringing books to put on the shelf, too.
