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 do have some books on a shelf in my main living area where guests can see them. These are some favorites as well as a stack of library books and books that I want to read. I try to keep the library books close together and near the door so I can easily return them…hopefully without paying too much in overdue fines!
