Sometimes a bookshelf is just a bookshelf. But, other times, it's a statement. And this one says ...my adventure side dictates how my classic side behaves. And I agree. We all have very opposite tastes sometimes, and by marrying them together we can satisfy our desires. For example, I love that I can pull my favorite poems anthology from this bookshelf and marvel at the small pair of elephants carved from onyx I recently acquired from Madagascar. Wait there are no elephants in Madagascar, are they? Oh well, you get the drift.
