Shelf respect : a book lover's defence

Austen, Annie2019
Books
A gift-book for book lovers celebrating the bookshelf and the plethora of options for organising its contents. Defends the mess and sprawl of a good bookshelf, contemporaneous with attacks on this aesthetic from across the decluttering trend. There's no such thing as too many books, simply not enough places to put themDecluttering is all the rage, but what do you do when your preferred interior decor is miles of overstuffed bookshelves? If you can't bring yourself to clear your collection, SHELF RESPECT will validate your life choices.Do you alphabetise your books or organise by genre... or (heaven forbid) colour? Have you merged your collection with your other half's? (And do you write your name inside the cover, just in case?) Do you keep all the books you've read, or only the most cherished? Is there such a thing as too many books? (No.)Bound to provoke (good-natured) debate between Bibliophiles, SHELF RESPECT is a charmingly illustrated book in defence of towering TBR piles and overflowing shelves... no matter how you choose to organise them.
