Evie that house plus retail space sounds like heaven. I'm sending positive thoughts your way for something good to turn up. If only wishes could be turned into cash. Sad

I know!  thanks, though.  I'd rather have friends than cash!   Smile

Evie, I am sure you will never want for friends! Like County Lady, I wish there was a way all that friendship and goodwill could be translated into something more tangible.

Thank you, Chris! It's been a hideous year generally, with serious family issues as well, so I am just trying to be philosophical - and certainly very grateful for friends, both real and virtual (who seem very real!).

Thanks - I am sure things will work out!  Sorry to monopolise the thread with personal stuff - it is just all related to my books in some way!  I have come to realise that the bookshop idea is less viable than intially thought, though, because of a distinct lack of capital or collateral...so my books may be mine for a bit longer!   Very Happy

And I will think of an imaginative but practical way of organising them on the shelves, going back to the original article, which I still love.

I think we have discussed something like this before.  I used to have all my books in alphabetical order (by the authors surname) and one shelf was dedicated to my non-fiction and the other to fiction but as I have got more I have long since given up on that and just shove them where they will fit!

We have discussed it before, I just found the article entertaining, and was too lazy to hunt down the original discussion.   Smile

All of you with your alphabetical authors and shelves and things. I put small books in one of the small piles, medium books in one of the medium piles, and large books in one of the large piles.

It is also possible to organise by colour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGlN_EaEgPQ
