It's not hoarding when it's books

Let's face it: we haven't read all the books we have at home. But is that bad? Even disingenuous? A posing in front of oneself?

That may be all, but it's still half bad if you look at the benefits: we support other philosophers and their publishers when we buy their publication. That is directly social. Likewise, studies show that the mere presence of books has a positive effect on stress levels. Moreover, children who grow up in households with lots of books seem to be better at cognitively processing information - even if the books aren't even read. Their presence exudes something that lifts the spirit. I, for my part, could concentrate much better in a library than in an office, even if I'm alone there and it's quiet. So we can confidently say that buying books is not hoarding, nor is it showing off. It is the first step to activate a connection, and even if we only look through the portal without passing through it, this probably also looks into us and the glimpse remains in us.
