I find there are some people who view bookshelves as a way to quickly surmise another's intellect. Is that sad?
I like to think that someone's intellect (and personality) is comprised by so much more than a personal library, whether or not he/she watches TV, drives a hybrid or drinks single origin coffee.
How I've come to assemble my own library, has been based on school, book clubs, friends' recommendations and I daresay (gulp) covers? It's true! Now I may be judged by the t-shirts I wear. XO
Really cool t-shirts of out of print book covers from Out of Print
