I have two different types of bookshelves in my life: those that I meticulously organize and curate with books that will make me look eclectic and intelligent–epitomized by my tall, skinny bedroom bookcase–and those on which I toss half-read galleys and stripped hardcovers, piling them horizontally and vertically and every way in between–epitomized by my shelves here at work until Erica one day demanded that I allow her to organize them.
They’re both beautiful in their own ways, I guess.
