If we want to go down the I ahve more books than you path

I can simply say lots I think 14 book cases worryingly most of them arent fiction
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

That's a good sign, it means you aren't reading lots of rubbish.

my wall of books:
Waaah! Library porn!

Since you've shown me yours, I'll show you mine... I'll post a pic on Monday. Not very big at the moment because of moving house regularly, but I do have sheet music in it too.

I'm told I do a good Bene Gesserit impression in my wimple

The Ospreys I can understand, although you must have most of them to be able to fill a bookcase. However are the costume books really yours?

Library, armour, costume and weapon porn is about all that is allowed on here I think.

We really should have a Dune theme night at some event or other. The more BG the better, but who can come up with a Stillsuit?

Ooh, good one, that counts too right? :D

Just checked my Stig of the Dump, was printed in 1971, first printed 1963. That's old :twisted: It's nice to look back through all my dad's books actually, all the old favourites like' One Hundred Million Francs' and 'The Night the Water Came' and 'Tom's Midnight Garden' bring back so many memories.

Most of the books that I've bought in the past years have been non-fiction, bar Tristram Shandy and Gulliver's travels! :D

Lidi (:

thank you lidi, the room was just a unused hallway, so i wanted a place to read, we read loads over here and the shelfs in the living room are full, i just thought why not relaxing with a book is good but when others have tv,computer games or computer on i cant relax and get distracted, so now i have nice place to go,,its not much but i belive every home should have a libary, love nicky.x

Looks very atmospheric :D I agree though, having a computer on or people around is very distracting when trying to read, a;though usually if I sit away from it then it's enoughto stop me hitting the refresh button on the forum for the 100th time :lol:

I've got to ask; is your last name 'thump' and how do you feel about black pudding?

Actually, it's the Scottish martial art of Siujimi. Including such moves as "Giesmairchipspal", "Haudmabottlaneedapish" and of course "Canyirmammyso?"

Ah yes, I have heard of this, it has a long and distinguished history. The problem is that in England we only ever see a pale imitation of the true form, this is usually practiced by drunks outside Spa, who use it to try and extract money from passersby.

I must admit I was originally mislead by the photo where you do seem to be adopting the first position of Yorkshire Sumo.

since I'm always interested in new combat styles, I should go and study Yorkshire Sumo.
Is the hammer neccessary or is it a ritual item? Please provide more information.

I picked many of mine up from charity shops and 2nd hand shops, but the supply is slowly drying up. If you are ever near Carlisle, there is a 2nd hand shop near the castle that has a good selection. Otherwise there is the internet. Many of his books are no longer available brand new, basically anything apart from the Dune series, such as "The green brain", "THe worlds of Frank Herbert", "The Santaroga barrier" etc are not as far as I am aware still in print.
