Bookshelf tour–part 2

This is part 2 in a 3-part tour of the bookshelves in my house.

082This is in my study. It’s a bit, um, crowded. Most of the books are double-stacked, plus there’s spillover on the little table on the right. Then we have my Spike figures (and his friends), my postcard collection, and various bits and bobs I’ve collected during travels. The whole study’s like that. I rarely work in there, actually. I do most of my writing at the kitchen table.

 

 

 

080One of the living room cases. This one has some fiction, art books, photo albums, and yearbooks. My husband and I went to the same high school, which is why you see doubles for the yearbooks. You can also see my knitted Joey Ramone, plus a few other things.

 

 

 

 

081The second living room case. This one has cookbooks, craft books, and gardening books, plus a shelf or so of general nonfiction. I try to keep these bookcases semi-organized, but am only partially successful.

The third living room case. Travel books, fiction, and a lot of nonfiction. It’s almost entirely double-stacked. Can you spy my beloved copy of CMOS (Chicago Manual of Style)?

 

 

 

 

083Instead of traditional nightstands, we opted for more bookcases. Here’s mine. Double-stacked.
