As some of you may know, for the past two years I’ve been working on my memoir. I work with a writing coach and last week she asked me to write about my office.

Could it be that my office could tell me more about me than any of the memories of my past?

I began working from one corner and slowly worked my way around the room, clockwise.  

Counting my books, one shelf at a time, I discovered that my office contains over 2,000 books. I knew I had a book problem, but now I could quantify it. 🙂

My books are coming in handy for a project that I’m working on at The University of Texas at Austin (UT) –

As we develop our Science Storytelling Studio with the UT Nutrition Institute, we are coming up with ways to tell stories through a single lens.

One book I own is a fantastic example of this.
