A room without books?

Amazon.com sent me this magnet years ago and I’ve had it stuck on one metallic surface or another ever since then. It’s a quote from Cicero – “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” If that is the case, then there is just one room in our house that doesn’t have a soul. Can you guess which room has absolutely no books in it?

    If it’s like mine its the dining room unless you count my lawnmower manual 🙂 Wait it might also be the Laundry Room

    I’m guessing laundry room. Or maybe Philip’s bathroom.

    I’m going to agree with Steve. Mom

    We don’t have an official dining room, Happy. Though when we have had one it’s usually been a dining room/library/school room. Lawnmower manuals go in the garage don’t they? 🙂

    The laundry room is the one room without books. I suppose that wasn’t as unusual as I thought it might be since you all guessed it!
