Where am I reading?

December 6, 2017

I recently read about a house in Japan that features an inclined wall of bookshelves.  The slant prevented the books from falling off the shelves in case of an earthquake (usually), and was constructed so that one can climb up the shelves to find a particular book.  I thought it was genius.

It reminded me of our crossing on the Queen Mary 2.  The ship’s library was just steps from our cabin.  Their solution to keeping the books in place during heavy seas (and there were some), was to have locking glass doors on all of the shelves – also genius.


We spent a lot of time there.
