massive bookshelf AND simplicity?!

Well, yes and no. My bookshelf is only massive in the virtual world. I buy books used from other expats who advertise in classifide ads. I also trade books via post or meet-ups, coordinated by Bookcrossing. And when I finish a book, I only keep it if it’s so good I plan to read it again… which I’m quite practical about, after years of realizing how rarely I’ll ever read especially a fictional novel twice…. or if it’s a book I’ll keep referring back to again and again (craft books, for example).
