Now there's a possible eeeevil fantasy. Imagine winning the lottery or some
such and going house hunting for a house big enough for a room to set up as
a library. Then just making some realtor's life miserable moaning about the
lack of shelf space in today's home and so on.
You don't have to win the lottery. I officially (she told me so, although
it was in a friendly manner) drove my realtor nuts about bookcase space when
I was shopping for my condo.
There was this one house I still think about and sigh -- beautiful built-in
bookcases lining the living room and one of the bedrooms. Too bad it was so
close to the railroad tracks that the light fixtures rattled every time a
train went by...
whose father always built bookcases first thing after a move
