I must be really, really bored for I have decided to put all my books into alphabetical order. It’s all to do with my visit Pearlie yesterday and finding her watching Sense and Sensibility on TV. It was the bit where Marianne gets caught mid-rapture in a shower and, as you’d expect, takes not one bit well. Many’s a drenching I’ve had in my time and never once needed a devilish handsome man in tight breeches to carry me home and put me to bed. But then I tend not to wear light muslin frocks when I go hill-walking in thunderstorms.
Pearlie thought this all thrilling stuff and asked if I’d a copy of the book in the house. Well – maybe I have. But I couldn’t put my hand on it. So hence the long overdue organisation of books. I wonder if alphabetical order is the answer. I’ve got Austen rubbing shoulders with Bagshawe and Dickens beside de Bernieres. Should de Bernieres be among the ‘Bs’ and how will I organise the non-fiction and reference? Shall I mix up the children’s books with the adult fiction? Bert suggests using the Dewey Decimal System.
I wonder how long it will take me. I’m only up to the ‘Ds’ so far and I still haven’t found Sense and Sensibility.
