My bookshelf says who I am – and a Kindle cannot do that

The biggest question for every bibliophile when they move in with a loved one is: do we merge collections? Mrs Dalloway believed that love and religion would destroy the privacy of the soul; she’d agree with me that merging collections threatens the same. But perhaps those taking shelfies are right and books are soul music, made for sharing on gloriously open shelves.
