I took the first step. I called the local paper and placed an ad to sell our books. I don't know how it happened but we are totally overrun by books. They have outgrown our so-called library and are lurking in every nook and cranny. They're in drawers, in stacks, in the hall, here, there and everywhere. I know coat hangers have the ability to reproduce in the dark of night. I'm beginning to think that books do too.
