Building with an eye toward the present.

The bookshelves in our home are full, and they've been full since we've built them. We now have addtional books laying in piles on my desk (and under it) on the nightstand next to our bed, on the piano, and on just about any open space that can hold them. And, with a certain degree of embarrassment, I've got to admit that we hardly ever buy books. When we built the bookshelves in our home we built them for the books that we already owned, and didn't seriously take into consideration the rather logical probability that we'd be getting more, and would need room to store them.
