One of the things I've done this summer is to take you all on a tour of my bookshelves. If any of you missed out, you can find links to all the posts on Come Browse My TBR Shelves and It's Time to Browse My Keeper Cases. As I said at the end of the last tour, I still had shelves here in the office but any browsing would just have to wait until I'd finished sorting and sifting through everything in the closet.
The closet is sorted and sifted (or is that sifted and sorted?), and I've condensed the contents of my bookshelves and removed one tall bookcase unit. It's been a long time since I've seen that section of wall, and I have to admit that I'm enjoying the empty space.
Now it's time to let you take a look at the last of my shelves here in the office where I sit and do all the work on my blog. There are two two-shelf bookcases under the window that looks out over the pool and backyard, and I have some books on the shelf above my monitors.
I've left the file sizes of the photos intentionally large so you can manipulate them to see titles because that's what we book lovers love to do-- do that head-on-the-side thing to read the spines. Here we go!
|This is the shelf for all my knitting and needlepoint books. Many of the pattern books are so skinny that you're not going to be able to read the spines. Sorry 'bout that!|
|Then there's the shelf for wildlife and plant identification as well as dictionaries. The tall, thin, spiral bound book is a guide to making your own envelopes. The glass Planters Peanut jar holds plastic grocery bags. They breed well in captivity.|
|This shelf is for art and history books that I can't part with. If you think you see two white nooses on top of the books on the right side of the shelf, you've been reading too many mysteries!|
|More treasured books about horses, England, ballet, and art. Oh-- and my camera bag.|
|This is the shelf above my monitors. Books I want to read soon, more plant and wildlife identification reference works, a giveaway book, and some odds and ends.|
And that's it! Now you've seen all my bookshelves. Perhaps I should do this series of posts every five years or so just to see how much things change (or don't change). What do you think?
