This week's Booking Through Thursday is:
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?
Definitely. A nice full bookcase is something that really draws the eye, and it's a great place to find conversation topics... or maybe books I'd like to borrow...
I do find it hard to imagine life not surrounded by books. If someone doesn't have enough books for even one bookcase, I find myself wondering what on earth people do with their time.
