For those who have adult books, where do you keep them?
I'm going to start collecting adult material, and while I don't think I necessarily have to hide them, I don't want to be extremely obvious in case I have guests.
Our books are out on the shelves in the living room. If someone decides to look through my books (as I often do in other people's homes), they'll see them and they can think what they like. I understand the impulse to hide them, though, especially depending on your family situation. Or if you have particularly "raunchy" adult material.
If I was going to hide them, I would keep them on a smaller bookshelf in the bedroom. It's not really good for the spines of your books to stack them horizontally, so it seems like the better option to me. It would be even better if you could find a tall bedside table with a hinged cabinet door so that you could put the books inside.
I'll have to remember that if I ever decide to have children.
