Show off! :( My book shelves are a work in progres OK? :(

Where did you get the fancy pine cone? We have one just like it that came from the South of France :D

I have one too, but I painted it! Et voila!

Lidi :D

That is a mere half of my library. The only problem is it is not arranged by subject or indexed in any way.

I have no idea where my pine cone came from, it was kicking about at home for years before I took it. Yours certainly looks more colourful.

The re-enactors amongst you will have noticed the Mead bottles decorating the top.

Ah, you see, that's where I win! All my books are arranged in order...

OK OK, height order, then subdivided into colour order, but that DOESN'T make me weird. Have you got that? :oops:
Although I do have a seperate mini shelf for books with tatty covers, mostly Enid Blytons bought for 20p in the sixties, because they ruin the display somewhat.

:roll:

Yes... loved by my dad when he was 6 xD

They aren't exactly out the way, in fact the mini book shelf is probably the first thing you see when you come through the door to my room. You have to turn a corner to see my more used shelf :D

The thing is, amongst a certain section of the population, ie us, you get kudos for actually having all those Enid Blyton books.

Wait till you see me in action. Bunratty is not mead. Its dodgy wine with honey in.

Should we start a competition to see who has the most books? Or would it be really, _really_ sad to start bidding on how many you can recognise from the photograph? :oops:

I mean, your Dune series is spread all over the place, and having William Gibson two shelves away from Neal Stephenson is just strange, and any man who has Terry Brooks' "Sword of Shannara" on display is clearly both single and likely to remain so... :wink:

I could go on, but I'd need a ladder to get myself out of the big sad hole I seem to have dug.

[Edit: I'd post a photo of mine, but I'd need a camera which can be in three rooms at once, and take photos in 360 degrees 8) ]

That competition isn't fair, I am severely disadvantaged as one generally collects book as one's age increases! (and salary too I imagine).

Seeing as it pleases you so much guthrie, my E.B's amount to 24, which isn't a lot, but there are also a lot of other old books such as 'An Incredible Journey', 'Stig of the Dump', 'The Silver Sword' &c which I assure you delighted me and were the books that started me off reading independently when I was about 6 :D

Lidi :D

i also spot that you have 3 editionds of dune 1st, 3rd, 4th. and some other herbertish stuff as well. ill quite happily be stilgar or leto Artiedes.

must remember to suggest a 'Dune' night at a fed event....... all those luminous blue contacts would be cool to see.

camera is on the blink mine is much the same as guthries but ive got armour and swords and piles of leather thingies around and through my shelves.

Nobody said life was fair :lol:

Anyway, it sounds like you can count your parents' books as well, and that's always an advantage in life. When I started reading seriously, there were 5 books in the house, and 4 of those were tourist guides or road atlases. Maybe that's why I now have so many?

Oh, very well then. That should the bump the numbers up a bit, but still nowhere near 3 rooms full! The fact that I am still able to count my books gives an idea of their quantity :(

Should all change when I go to Uni though :D

They used to do a similar type of thing on the Ganoskin (jewellery) archive where you'd send in photoes of your workbench.

Kudos went to those with the most disorganized chaos.

Ahhh, a fellow bibliophile, don't worry, it is a perfectly normal if minority activity.

I never had time when I moved in to arrange them properly. I think I have everything of Frank Herberts that was published in this country in book form, if there's anything you'd like to borrow.
As for the sword of Shannara, I bought it because some people seemed to like it and thought it was great. It turned out to be LOTR for 8 year olds.
If you know any nice single women, late 20's, intelligent, into re-enacting but also fairly sensible, let me know.
I do also have some Ann McCaffreys up there, not to mention everything from "Armour" by John Steakley to E. E. Smith. up there in the top right hand corner of the2nd bookcase in from the right.


PaulMurphy wrote:[Edit: I'd post a photo of mine, but I'd need a camera which can be in three rooms at once, and take photos in 360 degrees 8) ]

So would I. I have a 2 bedroom flat, 2 bookcases in the 2nd bedroom, 3 in the main bedroom and 5 in the lounge.

I, and I don't think Paul, actually have 3 rooms full, it is just that with a budget and space problems there are only so many books you can have at once.
I started counting mine a while ago, but it is hard to count the 2nd row of books (Yes, there is a second row behind all those in the above photo) so I estimate something over 3,000.

Going to uni is great. I am afraid that charity shops have gotten more expensive over the past 10 years, but when I went to uni I had around 500 books, when I left I had well over a thousand. It is relaxing to go through the bookshops, buying interesting books on a Saturday morning.
