Don't know what has gotten into me. 3 posts in one day?
Over the weekend I finally got around to organising my bookcases. I've been wanting to do this for quite awhile now but it actually seemed like such a daunting task and so I kept putting it off. But thanks to Nemesis' latest post on bookcases I finally got myself moved into gear and I love the results. They are still a bit of a work in progress but here is where I am at right now:
I really need to get myself a nicer camera because these picture just don't do my bookcases justice (why is it that when I look at the pics on my computer they look much more clear than they look once I upload them to my blog?). The process of organizing the cases was actually a really interesting process that showed me a few things. I realized that at some point I must have gone through a David Brinkley phase because I have two of his books (books written by him about him); I have lost a couple of my Fforde books; I CLEARLY need more cookbooks (I mean the old-fashioned scale is cute but I don't think it quite works in a bookcase in my bedroom); I also need some taller books for the middle right shelf (and more books--how sad for me I need to go out and buy some more of my favorite books;)). Just in case you are wondering, the purple packages on the top right are indeed chocolate covered marshmallow eggs (I am a total sucker for chocolate covered marshmallows). Also at the top right is my space for library books because some of the best books I have read have belonged to the library but for the short time I am allowed to borrow them I like to pretend they are mine by giving them a spot in my bookcases.
So there they are. I love them. I would actually really like to copy this bookcase by Nemesis at some point. I am afraid of splitting up volumes of books that happen to be different colors but some day I will have a bookcase that looks like that.
(I am actually going to be using this as part of that clutter challenge that I was telling you about below)
