Nope, this isn’t a post about accounting.
And I love books. My home is full of them. Some are even in bookcases.
This past weekend, I decided it was time to spring clean the largest of my bookcases. That meant cleaning each book. And of course, that meant stopping to appreciate each book – when, where and why I’d gotten it; what it taught me; where it had taken me; and why I still had it.
It also meant a new way of displaying them. I got this idea from an image I saw on Pinterest . It’s very new to me not to have my books in order of subject, author, etc. I love this color display though. It makes me smile. It also helps me notice books I’ve been overlooking. Ya know how easy it is to wear only 20% of the clothes you own? It’s like that for me with books, too.
So now I’m re-celebrating books I’ve owned and loved for years,but taken for granted.
Hmmm… wonder what else I need to color code?
How do you make sure you don’t take things or people you love for granted?
