Obsession both his and hers

Her obsession with books and not being able to let go of the collection began to look like hoarding. The shelves became a jumble of disorder. There were old books of her mothers, fathers and grandparents her childhood books, cookery, garden, house design all wedged this way and that. Getting dustier and dustier....

Then he introduced his obsession...TV. Large, flat screen, blank, shiny surfaced thing. Which obsession will win out? Or can they coexist in peace?

I like this because I have an obsession with books too! But I don't have any good bookshelves so I give them away or stash them in boxes. This gal is lucky!
