In that we are moving to Northern Ireland, our book collection had to be cut down significantly. It was a horrible task that was really quite difficult, but it resulted in us actually acknowledging the good stuff that we have, hopefully making us more inclined to read those that we have not already read. It also allowed us to donate about 150 books to our favorite used bookstore...this one...
This is one of her rooms. She put a bunch of books about Ireland on this table...in case we were interested in learning more about our destination.
Another room in her house has walls lined with bookshelves. A little lamp illuminates the books.
We couldn't leave without looking through her newest additions...and the old ones, too. I ended up grabbing DeLillo's Mao II and Mark Twain's The Innocents Abroad. My wife grabbed a few as well, though I'm not sure what.
