When you enter an unfamiliar house or apartment for the first time, do you feel disappointed if you don't see any bookshelves, or books on the coffee table? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)
I like to browse bookshelves. It also helps give me topics to bring up for later conversations.
Also, if one were to judge my reading habits based on the quantity of physical books I currently own, before they knew me well enough to know my history, that'd be unfair. So I'd never do that to someone else, personally.
