But I've culled and I've culled and I've culled, and I know there will be more culling ahead; for now, with the help of Ikea's Billy shelves (yes, I miss the custom cabinetry of our old shelves, but Billy works well and sometimes instant gratification is just the ticket!) and some creative crunching (the alphabet has to be a bit flexible here so that books taller than their assigned shelves can lie on their sides and coyly flash their spines. . . I think I'll wait until our new sleeper sofa is delivered next week before I show you the whole wall (which will be partly occluded by that couch, in yet another creative compromise). (Whoa! Did you notice how many parenthetical comments that last sentence included?!)
I don't need to wait any longer, however, to share my 2016 Reading List with you. For those who might be interested, I've posted it over here on my Reading Blog, Materfamilias Reads. I'd love to hear what you think about titles I've read or see your recommendations for ones I haven't, yet.... Leave a comment, if you have a minute, either here or there. Thanks!
