Well, really this one got fairly close. I haven't been keeping up my book log on the sidebar like I intended too. Usually I have at least three books going. But the genres and the styles change, and I am not all that rigid in my organization. Some of my titles are grouped by subject (like half a row of Lincoln stuff or the Founding Fathers/American Revolution shelves). Some are grouped by author (I have hardcovers of everything written by more than a couple of writers)

People sometimes get blown away by the music stuff scattered all through the house (I don't have any guitars on a stand in the bathroom or kitchen, but every other room is fair game) but I love it when a bibliophile sees the library. They gasp audibly. It's a room for books and reading. Four walls, floor to ceiling shelves, one chair, one small table, one lamp. They see that and know exactly where I'm coming from.

I am a Dedicated Reader, too. Had to fudge on one of the choices, because I hadn't read Bridges of Madison County but, on the other hand, have read all of the Harry Potter books, so figure that was a fair substitution.

I don't have a dedicated book room. But my husband has threatened to leave me if I buy more books (hasn't carried through on the threat, yet). For me, a bookstore is a greater problem then any other place to shop; I almost never leave a bookstore without having spent $100 (of course, I have unfortunately infected my children with the same bad But on the otherhand, it's probably the one bad habit that isn't illegal, immoral or fattening!

No, reading is none of those things. I always get a charge when I read the "100 best books of the year" at the New York Times. It usually turns out that I own and have read most of them.
