CSN Stores review

This is a nice way to end the week!

CSN Stores contacted me to offer a review of one of their products, so I spent an hour browsing their site, admiring the handbags and rugs and exercise bikes. Oh, wait, not the last one. I exercise by walking to the nearest library.

Their selection of lights was appealing because I live in a basement apartment (for now) and don't have much access to the sun. Thank goodness I come by my tan genetically. But the bookcases look great too... and I have books in large homeless stacks.

Lamp vs. bookcase? Which do you prefer?

On the one hand, book shelves keep the books off the floor, and are handy for organization. On the other hand, lights are useful for reading books.

On the third hand, sunlight gives you cancer.

There are some lights down here, just not many. I just miss natural light, though - and the lack of it means no house plants either.

But once I graduate and get a good job, I'll have a place of my own. Maybe I'll go for the bookcase - that will be useful no matter whether I live above or below the ground.

It is nice to get out of the basement. It's warmer upstairs, too.

Personally, I'd probably go for the bookcase, too, in the end.

I'd get the bookcases and light some candles. :)

Bookcase it is, then!

There are three furniture stores within five minutes' walk of my apartment but only one of them had a bookcase in stock (and I didn't really like it). So it was fun to browse the online store and pick a case.

I'll provide pictures when it gets here.
