Note: The entire concept for this post comes from www.maneandchic.com who covered it in their ” Would You Rather Have A Big Library or Big TV” post
While browsing one of my new favorite blogs, Mane and Chic, the question, “Would You Rather Have A Big Library or Big TV?” came up. Immediately I sided with a big library. While I do dedicate quite a large amount of my time to reality television, there’s no denying that books are my first love. As a child I was known to spend hours in the library, browsing their selections until I had amassed a pile of 10+ books that I checked out, read and returned. I spent hours reading. As an adult, I am now known to spend random weekend hours curled up in bed with my newest purchases from Barnes & Noble. Nothing will ever get me the way that books do, television included. As a result, when I finally moved into my own place, I refused to place a tv in my bedroom. My tv’s could be found in my second bedroom and living room-my bedroom was reserved exclusively for writing, reading and sleeping.
The author of mane and chic elaborated that more affluent households have fewer televisions than than the homes of poorer communities. Generally, the more money one had, the more books that could be found in that home. Wow. Think about that for a second and the implications it has…
After reading that, I logged into my ebookstore and ordered two more books for my Sony e-Reader lol! Below I’ve found a few pictures of unique bookcases and a library that have tickled my fancy. Enjoy 🙂
