Did you ever see the photos of my library, after I'd re-arranged it?

Oh yes, I remember those! I remember wanting to leap through my monitor and cuddle all those lovely books...

*ggg* And that's only *part* of the collection. I once counted the books that are in my living room (mostly cookbooks, and dictionaries, and herbals, and classics, and photography books and so on...) and ended with over 1000 volumes. ^__^

You're welcome to move into my library any day! ^___^ Bring the Choir along, I'm sure I can find something to entertain them with...
