I know, not the best picture but one of the features that totally sold me on our new house was that it has a study with lots of bookshelf space and a woodstove. It's so cozy I just can't wait to get it all organized and put together.
A while back I put a halt to book buying because I just didn't have anywhere to put more of them. As I began trying to unpack all the boxes of books I kept thinking wow I've got a lot of books! I still don't have all the books up but I've definitely used up more of the shelves here than I thought I would. The worst part is that I kept thinking about the other books I still need to get!
So what books do you think are essential for a good home collection?
