Your resident reviewers:
Amethyst is sort of like a disorganized bull-dog. She has about a million half- or three-quarters finished projects stuffed into a craft room, and somewhere around three hundred books covering one of her bedroom walls. Her husband, a man to whom she owes much of her ability to function like a normal human, has a saint-like tolerance for the insanity leading to his wife's Wall-o-Books.
In fact, the WoB may just be the only pleasure to which Amethyst remains faithfully dedicated, partially because of her bull-dog aspect, and partially because she suffers strongly from Orphaned Book Syndrome, aka that guilt one feels when one finds a book such a waste of time he or she wants to abandon it, but she can't make herself do it.
