Winter Settling Moon II
Organizing goes well. I have an ancient history and the classics bookshelf, two American Studies bookshelves, a climate change/nature writing bookshelf, several art bookshelves, a poetry/spirituality/renaissance/depth psychology bookshelf, an Asian studies bookshelf and a literature bookshelf. The art bookshelves include books on Romanticism, Modernism and the Enlightenment. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that I’m going to end up several feet of bookshelf short. This does not come as a surprise, but it does mean something other than the ikea shelving and the regular bookshelves will be needed. I’m leaning toward built ins, but we’ll see what Jon says about how hard they would be to build. (maybe something like the above)
The bending over, lifting several books, then moving them to a new place, bending over and shelving them, which seems innocent enough, puts my back under strain. Which, perversely, I like. Since I’m not getting exercise right now on the treadmill, this kind of stooping, lifting and walking has to be enough.
