Gradually things are finding their places in my new home. My husband & I both do a lot of work from home, so studies have had a high priority in our planning. (We have had no choices on the exterior design of the house, but have had some saying on the interior – and have amongst other things built extra strong walls to carry our 4000 books)
For the books we have chosen the very adaptable Swedish shelving-system called String, designed in the 50′.
Such a mess!
We started out with 4000 books, but have reduced the collection considerably. I took out all novels I knew I wouldn’t reread, and a lot of books on post-modernism and post-structuralism. My husband got to keep all the books by Deleuze & Foucault, and I kept Barthes, the rest; Derrida, Lyotard, Kristeva, Baudrillard, Bourdieu … are all gone, hopefully disappeared into other readers shelves.
Now my highest wish is to find some time to spend with – new books …
