With Seattle's literary and independent bookstore history, and Amazon's start with real books, it's natural that some houses are built around shelves and shelves, with ladders reaching the top tier and every room just a few steps away from something to read in bed, or while dinner is simmering, or just because you finally found time to sit still. You do remember sitting still, don't you? You do remember reading words on paper instead of words behind glass. Right? All these shelves are inside a 4 bedroom, 3.25 bath 1978 (pre-ebook) contemporary house that has 2,760 square feet of space.
