that last thread where people had to take a picture out a window wasn't a great success or anything
but maybe ??
ignore the grammar books
that English Grammar book is right in the middle of the photo and quite prominent. Now you've mentioned it it's really leaping out at me and hard to ignore.
it was for an enterprise. i'm not into grammar
http://i.imgur.com/zdkPRa2.jpg that's the real bookshelf
and only a couple of 'casual reads' or whatever. Crappy resolution, unfortunately.
unpleasant horizontal stacking technique on upper shelf is because it's a bit rickety and they fall over all the time if shelved vertically.
totally love having loads of books too. and i actually do reread them or refer back to them. hate all that "give them to charity" shit.
I just want to live here:
sorry it's sideways
of that radiator on the left. Might want to rethink your room layout, especially with the recent rises in gas and electricity prices.
If it gets too cold we just burn the books.
Only you seem to have a picture of my living room on your laptop...
had it for the last two weeks
particularly like what I found in that drawer next to your bed!
third shelf from the top, that go from shades of blue to green to yellow?
It looks delightful.
looks great tho - i think you are wining this thread
I didn't pay anywhere near that. About £80 or something at the time, I think, but they made very few of them.
The Great Ideas one and the Banned Books one were both excellent value
Thanks again for the Cadiz tip!
I think I'll have to go to Book Off tomorrow and buy as many books as I can carry back. Not like I'll ever read them, but they'd be nice to look at. I miss my stuff more than is probably good to admit. Well, not like I care. I'm materialistic as fuck.
your shelves are easily the best, almost artistic.
Have you not got all your manga anymore?
My sons collections are still growing.
Obviously didn't waste suitcase space on books, and I'm trying not to buy too many things that I can't take back with me. Could post my old / future pics though I guess.

I've also just realised I loaned out my copy of Sound Unbound and I've no idea who to. Gutted.
I have that researching social life book, he was my personal tutor
Got given it as a gift but have stopped using it. Might start again now that I've been reminded I have it.
Reminds me of how much I enjoyed The Invention of Tradition.
But it's been years since I read it.
I got the Moleskin journal as a gift too. Didn't use it for ages and eventually put it to use when I did my masters. It's a nice wee thing, I just wish I'd used it more wisely. I'm sure it'll be nice to look back at in a decade or so.
just waiting for my bursary to come through so i can afford some shelves for my non-fiction, will bump this in a week or so?
Top half fiction, bottom half art & design.
only got that the other day. 99p

1) it's making me painfully squint up close to try to make out the titles of books that remain forever beyond the reach of my gaze
2) it's making me sad about all the books on my kindle. so conveniently accessed, but so trapped in that cold little rectangle of grey
Bookshelf in the spare room where most of the fiction is. Note: it was TWICE this before we moved.
Part of massive Expedit unit in lounge with "coffee table" books and graphic novels:
I reckon I've got about 33% the same books
have some old ladderax that we are whacking up at some point (with some new shelves natch), so they are all piled up on the floor

under the telly (you can see a big of my famous tv in that shot)
there's a few more REFERENCE books uptairs
A Crisis of Brilliance is excellent.
she liked it a lot tho!
[NB good thread, will totally get involved tonight]
btw, although most peoples tidyness puts my shelves to shame
Massive London rents to live in a tiny flat ftw
I really need to sort this all out again, maybe store some of my cameras as well!
Aahh. I wouldn't mind working there. Good job
that's a lot fancier than it looked in my head
the main one is this one, which has a different feel:
that's what I was picturing
we are pretty unique yo.
I'm also enjoying the fact that you obviously have a couple of mates who have given you some proper trolling VHS tapes there...
but with more crap squeezed in.
I keep scrolling past this thread and thinking it says "show me your bumhole"
be more interesting than these carefully-staged "dishevelled" array of cuntshelves.
got a pile on my bedside of big books - fashion, cinema, regionalism and local interest stuff
got some on my chest of drawers - health, disability
got some at the side of my chest of drawers - sewing, cookery
got some on my 5 shelves - literary fiction, humour, classics, photography
got some in my alcove cupboard (the alcove that the shelves aren't in is an alcove cupboard) - philosophy, critical theory, non-fiction, cinema, photography, politics
also got lots of shelves of magazines and journals in my alcove cupboard and at the bottom of my wardrobe and under my bed
ive got hundreds of ebooks thank you very much
although i'm sure i've mentioned it before but loads of the charity shops on shields road and wallsend highstreet used to do paperbacks 5/6 for £1 when i was a teenager and i couldn't help myself
also donated all of my classics that have free ebook versions
