I enjoyed this article, the race part is just the truth, but the Parkinsons Law actually made me laugh because I thought of my house. I suppose one can think of any house, really. The bigger the house, the more stuff one can find to fill it. If you want to live like a minimalist, get a small place. No one is forcing me to get more & more books, therefore more & more bookshelves. But if I had less space, then I would either think twice & not get a book, or get an electronic version. Ha!
This is the photo of Nigella Lawson, a chef & food writer, I am supremely jealous of her writing room. You get the idea. Ha ha ha!
