Used to see this a lot in estate sales. Tv replaced books and music for many. Never could understand it.
My problem is running out of shelves.
My wife and I have recently moved, since my retirement. The largest room in the house will be the library, once we build the shelving. Right now we have dozens of boxes of books stacked everywhere, and it’s a pain, not least because it’s really hard to find a particular book.
There’s a lot to be had at auctions. Got the Harvard Five Foot Bookshelf for $35.
