Today, it’s another Wordless Wednesday post for the Wednesday Random bloggers. I’m going to cheat and use a few words because…It’s my blog. I do what I want. Also, I feel like some photos need a little explanation.
I do the vast majority of my reading on my tablet. It’s backlit, supremely portable, and I can carry thousands of books with me at any given time. But, I still love print books, and I always will. I have several collections I thought I’d share today.
I think I’ve probably mentioned that I collect fairy tales, Arthurian literature and Brian Froud art books. This is the book shelf where my fairy tales and Froud books live. And also my comfy reading chair that Morrighan is systematically destroying.
(My house is super cluttered. It’s just the way of things here.)
One summer, I was lucky enough to meet Brian and Wendy Froud, and I got my whole (at the time) collection signed. Also…I might have frightened them a little bit with my collection, but…worth it. He also did a little doodle in every book he signed!
This is the bookcase that holds the Arthurian collection. It was my husband’s grandfather’s who was a lawyer in the late 1800s. There used to be another shelf, but it got destroyed when this beauty got tossed in his family’s attic. We rescued it and it lives with us now. As you can see by all the books shoved in front, I’m rapidly running out of space. There are copies of the complete works of Shakespeare and Chaucer in here. I think I may need to find them new homes.
This is another cluttered bookshelf in my office.
And I can’t not share my young adult novel.
And you’ll notice that one of these books isn’t mine, but it’s a story I love and part of the series I’m doing with Jess Jarman.
We’re not even going to talk about the other bookshelf in my office or any of the ones upstairs. This is plenty.
Now…what’s on your shelves? Check out what’s on the other bloggers’ shelves by clicking on their names.
