Today I went down to my souqtown to pay my internet bill and check my mail. I’ve been pricing out bookshelves for a while, and either they are intrinsically expensive or all the woodworkers think I want something fancy despite my protestations otherwise.

I tried bargaining, failed, decided not to buy it, and then ran back in at the last minute and paid full price.). My books nearly fill it up! Without further ado, a picture:
