I ran across this post over at Reading Matters where people are wallpapering their homes with big photos of stacks of books. As a “book person” I thought they were pretty cool and fun to look at. I know I enjoy my stacks around the house.
But then I read this post over at fade theory about how “55% of people buying books do so just to decorate with them and have no intention of reading them”!!! Can that really be so? That’s really kind of sad.
So maybe these wallpaper books are for people who want to merely decorate with books and do so with no appreciation for books themselves. If that’s the case, then I don’t think this is very cool at all.
