Booking Through Thursday: Visual

Shakespeare and Company bookshop

This week’s Booking Through Thursday prompt asks

So … the books that you own (however many there may be) … do you display them proudly right there in plain sight for all the world to see? (At least the world that comes into your living room.)

Or do you keep them tucked away in your office or bedroom or library or closet or someplace less “public?”

I don’t really have company over, but even if I did, I wouldn’t hide my books. I think you can tell a lot about people by their books, and I admit to trying to checking out peoples’ books when I’m at their houses. Of course, I try to be sneaky, but I’m curious.

My classroom at school is crowded with books, too. It’s fun to see students looking for a book or to see parents scanning to see what their children will read that year. I say show it all off.
