Have you ever had a bookshelf collapse? I did just as we were getting ready to leave for the weekend. To be fair it gave us plenty of warning. It lost half of itself during our move in the fall. The day before a couple of the shelves had shifted. I was going to get to it. It announced its intollerance of waiting one more minute Friday afternoon by catapulting books and sundry other "I've-got-to-put-this-somewhere-out-of-reach-until-I-can-find-it-a-real-home" things. Do you know how much room three shelves of books takes up on the floor? Too much, especially in our space. My kids loved stacking them and sorting through them. Now for the job of figuring out what to do about it.
