Books in collective dignity.


At night, when the curtains are drawn and the fire flickers, my books attain a collective dignity.

I like your match Luisa!
A friend of mine once said that bookcases are a kind of wardrobes, because the books are clothes that we put on inside. Something like that, sounds different in English:)
