  1. Overwhelmed overwhelmed overwhelmed. My head is exploding with the idea of books! Can’t think straight enough to come up with anywhere near me that I could take advantage of, but I HAVE easy access to as many books as I want anyway. I’d like to see (well I’d probably never get there, but ykwim) pop-up bookshelves in areas where public library access is limited – possibly a talking bookshelf in an aged care facility where many residents no longer have the sight to read regular books, or in a rural or indigenous community.
