Jacket Copy reports that Amazon announced this week that it is now consistently selling more eBooks than paper books. Supposedly the number is 105 eBooks for every 100 paper books, which does not count free books (classics, etc.).
For those of you who, like me, love to see the inside of other people's houses, The Guardian has exactly what you're looking for -- in book form. They have appealed to their audience to post photos of their personal bookshelves to a Flickr group, and they've also asked for explanations of how the books are sorted. Fascinating stuff, I tell you. I will be participating by posting a photo later this weekend!

I am also excited about books, as it seems with the warmer weather I have a newfound love for reading. Not that I ever gave it up, but there for a while... It was slow-going. Now I am zipping through book after book. I am going away with my mom's friends (Yo-Yo shout-out!) to the Smoky Mountains for a couple of days.
The Ridge and Jefferson Bass's new book The Bone Yard.
Have a fabulous weekend! I hope you have some sunshine to enjoy & happy reading!
