Booking Thru Thursday

Yesterday it was 60 degrees here in Northern Nevada.  This robin thought about building his nest.
This morning? I stepped out my front door and  it looked exactly like this  (because that's when I took the picture)
Neither Robin or I  can understand this weather...and neither one of us like it much.

The Booking Through Thursday question for the day is:
So … the books that you own (however many there may be) … do you display them proudly right there in plain sight for all the world to see? (At least the world that comes into your living room.)
Or do you keep them tucked away in your office or bedroom or library or closet or someplace less “public?”

My answer is.... I have bookshelves in every room.  I have baskets in every room, where the overflow books go.  And in my bedroom?  I've made  a bookshelf out of books.  (which is a fancy way of saying I have a big pile of books--but a bit organized-- next to the wall )
I have used some books to  prop stuff set three books on their side and put a plant on top.  I have books in the closet of one of my guest is my children's book library.  Let's face it.  I have too many books.  But I love them. So, they stay.
My wish is too have a whole wall of bookshelves in m 'library' so that I can put all my books in one place and in order.  Right now, nothing is in any order.  I just have books on bookshelves wherever they land when I am done with them, but order would be nice. 

And I don't care if people see them.  I like it when they walk up to one of my bookshelves and ask me about a book.  Or say, they've read it too.

Oh my gosh, I thought our weather was erratic, but snow like that this time of year is crazy. It's 77 here right now.

That's a really good picture - you wouldn't think of seeing a Robin in the snow :)

I see that there are more people (and birds) than me waiting for spring. We have a lot of books too, all over the house, but I don't think we have quite as many as you do :-)
