My Bookcase.A couple of years ago I completely redecorated and re furnished my living room, spending a small fortune on a real Oak floor.
At this time I cleared out a lot of 'stuff'' that was cluttering the place up or was never used. I got rid of a huge number of old reference books that had been my fathers, I also gave away dozens of old novels that I was never likely to read again.
I planned the new room to be much more minimalist.
When it came to new furniture I bought a new solid Oak Book case Plenty big enough for the one hundred or so books that I was going to keep.
Two years on and my bookcase is crammed, there are books on top of books and books in front of books and more books arriving every month.
I am now faced with a difficult decision, do I give away more books that I don't think I will read again or buy another bookcase, a. If I can afford one b. if I can find one to match. Or c. buy a new bookcase that doesn't match and spoil the new uncluttered appearance of my living room?
