In my last post I mentioned my collection of books and textbooks. Because I feel highly uncomfortable in public places (although I often find myself longing for companionship) and value the written word above most all else, I began building my own library from which I could pull a book from almost any topic - and it is still growing.
Unfortunately, I share a small room with my sister and thus have little room. I recently rearranged everything so that more would fit, but I am still running out of book space. I am going to need to begin tetris-ing my books soon, which poses an organizational problem. At the moment all of my books are in a very specific order and in specific categories.
About four shelves are taken up by textbooks, and two shelving units are taken up by Star Trek books. I have a shelf for comic books (and a bin, and a box) and a shelf dedicated to fashion, music, and culture. The remaining shelves are dedicated to literature (three of which hold only the classics).
I also have a lot of DVDs and VHSs,most of which (the ones that are not Star Trek/Doctor Who/Nimoy/Shatner/Kelley related) I keep on a small shelving unit in my closet.
For those who do not have the space or the funds to build their own mini-library, the public library is the most wonderful place on earth. In fact, even I find it to be the most wonderful place on earth - when I actually make it there (which I hope to begin doing soon, but most likely will not be able to because of my anxiety and tourettes).
Everybody should have free access to information - and where the libraries and the internet exist, are accessible, and are allowed, it is free to all.
