A little light reading

by Helen Hooker August. 18, 2013 7402 views

Kevin and I have spent almost all of today unpacking boxes of books, CDs and DVDs and sorting them out onto shelving in our new house. The little sample shown here is just a quarter of our library so far sorted, although I've yet to locate the boxes containing most of my photography books. I don't profess to have arranged them in any scientific sort of order (they're far from alphabetical!) but I have at least collected together books by the same author. This slightly haphazard approach has however created some interesting juxtapositions - George Orwell sitting cheek by jowl with Adrian Mole and Kobbé's Complete Opera Book nestling up to the complete scripts of Blackadder!

Love books, they are a part of me.

I'm a big book voyeur, so this kind of image is bound to get me interested. We share the Hardys, Jameses, Orwells, Swifts and Ondaatjes, but nothing else. I would have helped ease the load of book-shifting by trashing the Rowlings... (sorry). And thanks: you've just given me an idea for a photo.

Giraffes can't dance ... ;^)
oh, 'The liar' from Stephen Fry, is it a good book?

To see a library was always a delight for my eyes... No matter the way of classifying books, the main part is to find them:))

You have no idea what an organized bookshelf does for my heart!

Don't worry about the arrangement...I have a ton of art history and instruction books right next to my James Patterson crime collection!
Thanks for sharing :)

I love other people's bookshelves.
We were forced to give so many of our books away when we moved last year!
Luckily the town library was starting an English section.
