Your Bookcase

DSC_0237For those of you who are nerds like me, you have a bookcase. Maybe one . . . or two . . . or a dozen or so. A place of sanctuary to house and showcase all of your books. And if you’re also like me, you’ve only read about half of them. I mean, you’ll get to the others . . . eventually. But not before buying a few more books which you must have and plan to read too. It’s not like there’s so many good books out there that must be read, and reread. And it’s not like there’s dumb authors out there adding more to our lists, all of which we most learn to cram into only 24 hour days. 7 day weeks. 52 week years. (The story of my life.)

Anyways, I digress. If you’re a nerd like me, you have a bookcase. Maybe one, or two, or a dozen, but a bookcase. And that bookcase, it does more than just keep your books from collecting dust, doesn’t it? I mean, doesn’t it reveal just a little of what type person you are? If you enjoy reading about dragons and aliens rather than hot football players or cowboys? If you’re the type who enjoys a good mystery or would rather dive into self-help revelations to better your life?

If there was a bookcase which displayed your life, what would it look like?

Would it be one which was bare? or crammed with numerous adventures? Would it be filled with tales of helping, ‘how-tos’, and medical journals? or with detective novels of unknown crimes of lying, thievery, and murder? Would it be filled with shelves of uniqueness? or the same bestsellers as the case right next to it?

If there was a bookcase of your life, would there be a mixture or all the same? Would there be more words than pictures? More tales of yourself or more stories of others who reserved a place upon your shelf? Would they all be at a 3rd-grade reading level, or a progression of 5th, 6th, even college?

If there was a bookcase which displayed your life, what would it display about you? What would it reveal that others don’t see now? What would it show of you, your history, what you like or dislike, what you do or how you act? What would it display?
