Storage: 11/18/06


I picked up Storage from the last BookCrossing meeting. The one thing most of us agree on is that we don't have enough room for things (especially books). We all seem to have the same goal: read and more release more books than we receive. Although I wasn't looking for specific advice on our storage problems, I wanted to read the book because it was short, had great photographs and the cover amused me.

Storage is not a step-by-step how-to book. It will not give a to do list of things to make one's storage problems suddenly vanish. Instead it is a small set of suggestions divided up my topic (either by storage device or by room). Most often the book gives multiple suggestions for a type of storage problem instead of one correct way. I liked this approach to the problem; it is okay to be different when tackling storage problems.

Here is my BookCrossing Review:

Storage for all its gloss and full color photography does have some practical advice about storage and de cluttering. What I liked best about the book is how it gives many different options to accomplish a storage problem without pushing one option over another.

Harriet liked the book for its bright and colorful photography. She's especially fond of the rain slickers on the cover and page 40 which shows a bowl full of red balls sporting white polka dots.
