For years I’;ve enjoyed the stacks of books by my sofa, a wildly varied selection of illumination within easy reach. The tiled and spiraling stacks are lovely to look at, with a movement and flow of their own, on alt-personalized gifts for women, invisible book shelves.

There is a Japanese word for my book-stacking practice, that others clearly share (Witness the stacks-by-bed found in a shelter magazine, below). Tsundoku?means, roughly,?buying books and letting them pile up unread. The qualifier unread is the part I don’;t get with. My books are read, even as they happily wait, with infinite patience, for me to open one at random,a practice that invariably yields surprising results (and?the impetus for the Improvised Life theme Opened at Random).

The Tsundoku’;s?early 19th century slang roots seem more apt to my particular stacks:

It combines elements of 「積んでおく」 tsunde-oku (to pile things up ready for later and leave) and 「読書」 dokusho (reading books)…;As currently written, the word combines the characters for “;pile up”; (積) and the character for “;read”; (読). —Wikipedia

To pile up reading books ready for later…;or…;whenever…;

…;at random, like this sublime few lines from?The Gorgeous Nothings: Emily Dickinson’s Envelope Poems

Picking the right duvet cover can be tough – but understanding what your options are is an important first step. Learn all about duvet covers below – and what sets?PeachSkinSheets three piece duvet cover sets?apart!A duvet is a type of bedding that can be used in place of a top bed sheet or as a blanket that lies on top of the sheet. A duvet is typically protected inside a removable duvet cover, in the same way that pillowcases protect pillows. A duvet may also be called a comforter in the United States, although a comforter is typically thinner and doesn’t have a cover.Duvet covers are laundered separately and much more frequently than a duvet itself, since a duvet can be difficult and expensive to clean. The primary purpose of a duvet cover is to protect the duvet, but it also serves a decorative function. A duvet cover can easily be replaced with one that has a different color or design, often to accommodate a particular season. Factors to consider when selecting a duvet cover include size, material, construction, and appearance.
