weight of books – 2

Some books caused shelves to sag, and so we flipped them over. Now they have an arch, and over time they will level, and we will keep an eye on them. I love seeing the history of the books. I remember buying books at stores that no longer exist. Some of the books I bought used from Amazon were library books, from Goodwill stores, small family businesses, and other stores.

Other books are by authors who blog with WordPress. This is also true of art from small businesses with Etsy. There are more sites I hope to visit as well, and many good small presses. I wish everyone the best with their good work. It will take me a few years to catch up with all the good art created in recent years. Wonderful work.

I like the look of the shelves – home and art and friendship over time. So grateful for all the wonderful blogs to read and view. And the print poetry journals on the shelves too!
