Great! If I didn't live on a bottom floor, my room would probably collapse, from the weight of the books.

What a fantastic comic strip this is! I've read through your archive and I'm already a fan.
Keep up the good work!

If I moved out, which isn't going to happen, my boyfriend would celebrate his suddenly empty book shelves with a party.

My computer obsessed, neat-nick boyfriend despises my books. He loves me, but my overflowing bookshelves make him crazy.

Books are scattered in no particular order around our apartment. Sometimes my boyfriend will get a sad look on his face, and I think he's contemplating the meaning of life. So I ask him, "Hey, are you okay?"

He gives me a mournful look and says, "Can't we do something about your books?"

Sigh. It's a no win situation. I am going to keep bringing in more books that need a home. He is going to keep eyeing those books suspiciously. It's the price a book hoarder and a computer geek pay for falling in love.

That's amazing! It reminds me of my bookshelf, that is miraculously still standing! : )
