Books have always been an integral part of my life, and I’ve always owned too many of them. If there is such a thing as owning too many books, that is. One can never have enough of those, and problems arise when space becomes a scarcity. Bookshelves are the solution, no doubt. But what happens when the bookshelves themselves occupy too much space? You get hold of compact, smart, sleek bookshelves. That fit within the corner pockets of rooms, and still hold all the wonderful books that you can’t even think of throwing out, even though you sometimes have to in order to create space.
