JC came by for the first time this evening and, after barely walking in the door, was so distracted by my book collection that it was several moments before I even received a hello hug. Admittedly, I have a fairly impressive book collection, and shelves that wrap around the back wall of my living room.

This is also not the first time my bookshelves have garnered such a response. Therefore, with recurring evidence to support my claim, I shall declare unequivocally that my bookshelves (and their contents) are, indeed, awesome.
