I took down all my shelves and painted the wall with satisfaction. I was happy that I had so much extra room, and would never again have to shift around hundreds of books when rearranging furniture.

But you know, I miss them.
I miss just looking at them and feeling a sudden urge to read one simply based on the cover art.

Don't get me wrong, I love the convinience of ebooks -- but I wish I hadn't been so gung-ho in getting rid of the hard copies of them.
Exer, why don't you just put one or two shelves up? You'll see how fast they fill up; otherwise you'll have this regret......
