A remarkable amount of this day has been spent digging through the astonishing pile of books (and a few gadgets) that is still, slightly, occupying a three-sided nook of bookshelves in one corner of the library/dining room here at Roseholme Cottage. I built the newest set of shelves in that corner a couple of years ago and never expanded the science fiction and fantasy collection into it. Instead, first the shelves, then the floor between them and eventually a great and dangerous volume of space filled up with books and other things in a random jumble.
It just...happened. Slowly. "I'll park this here and deal with it later." Later never arrived -- more stuff did. Eventually, I realized I had a problem, one so big I kept putting off doing something about it.
Until today. Between rounds of laundry, putting the scooter battery on the trickle-charger and a little -- a very little -- bit of leaf-raking, I have been slowly sorting through the great pile. I'm not done yet and I probably won't finish tonight, but I will get it done.
