When you visit a friend’s house, do you find time to browse their bookcases? Does it shock you if they don’t have one?
Of course! It’s always great to talk to people about recent books they’ve read or to talk about their favorites. When browsing through someone else’s bookcases, you never know what kind of inspiration their reading will bring you.
And yes, when people do not have bookcases in their living rooms: very disconcerting!
