We finally have decided on at least temporarily-permanent-for-now places for the book shelves. This is a good thing as it allows us to fill them with books, and then place the boxes that were once filled with books into the stack of boxes to recycle or return to their loaners.
This means less boxes in the living room. Yay.
Our lovely friends Luci and Swante came for dinner tonight which marks the first real dining guests we've had - aside from Daniel eating pizza on the floor with us during our painting phase.
While filling my shelves I continue on my rigorous dispensing with dust jackets. I hate them. They slide off the books, they allow the books to slide out of your hand if not held just so, and they are wasteful. Well, my dispensing with them doesn't make them any less wasteful, but it does solve the aesthetic and kinesthetic problems of them being ugly and unwieldy.
