The books on my top shelf are starting to slouch from their upright position. There just are not enough of them there to hold them up. Over the past ten or twenty years the accumulation of books on my shelves has begun to slow, and in some cases it has started to reverse. Even the number of shelves has decreased. I think at one point I had well over a dozen active full-sized bookcases. Now, I have two. There are a number of reasons for this, but basically it is that I donít read as much as I once did.
