The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week poses a book-related question. The hop starts on Friday and ends on Thursday. The purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers.
Honestly, I don’t think most people have what was considered in the 70-90s as coffee tables, at least not “coffee table books.” When I enter someone’s house for the first time, I really am not looking for bookshelves. I’m looking for weird stuff – and yes, I’m judging their state of living. It can say a lot. For example, if you’d entered my apartment years ago when I was engaged, you would have seen an electronic cavern. It was the ultimate tricked-out man cave because D thought that is what earned him social status. In a cramped corner, you would have found my bookcase, all blocked off. Also very representative of our relationship and finances. See? You learn a lot.
I will say, though, that of all the homes I’ve been in since a child…I don’t ever recall seeing a bookcase except at my uncle’s house with all his technical books. That’s what’s sad, huh?
