I posted these pictures elsewhere, but it made sense to put them here too. This is our library, where we most of the reading we do outside of the reading we do in bed. (No, you don't get to see our bedroom.) Do you have a favorite reading nook in your house? Where do you commune with your muse?


Mine is the recliner on the left. LR uses the monster on the right. The crate is Pippin's "safe house."


A better look at LR's chair and the little bookcase. That's a decanter and glasses on top. It's about the time of year when we fill that decanter with a 50/50 blend of brandy and amaretto.


The big bookcases (6"). Both stuffed to overflowing... and that's after we did a major sell/donate cleaning out of it a few months back.


Taken from the "stair corner." From where I am standing, there are twin two-riser step-downs behind me into the kitchen to the north and the living room to the east.

I am way too much of a slob to post pictures of my living spaces. :)

I just cleaned up after my attempt at sewing. Right of my writing desk is a small shelf with a small portion of the books I own on it. Then right in front of the shelf is my dog's bed. I don't read my dead tree books or even open my closet much so she gets to sleep in her own little nook, but that isn't visible in the photo. Can you guess what my favorite color is by looking at the photo? Instead of going with just any lamp next for my bed, I went with a paper lamp and love it...its a little different

I was wondering how long it would take before somebody said something... thought maybe I overstepped some rule of Kindleboard etiquette... :p but then if I did, I'm sure I would've heard about it!

I also thought of having a contest to see who could name the most titles on the shelf.

sacrilegious! besides, I still need them - I don't plan on duplicating my entire library on the Kindle.

The scary part is that just by looking at your picture I can ID a whole bunch of them because I'm used to seeing them on MY shelves. ;D Its bad when you can identify books by the general colors and designs on the spines. I drive my SO nuts, he can't find a book and I wander in and scan the shelves and put my hand right on it because I know what it looks like.

edit: Woo Hoo, finally made ACD level and got my third star!

I'd never really do anything like that to a book, not even bodice rippers. I'd donate them to the local library or USO first.

Hey bosslady, I've been meaning to tell you, I LOVE the painting by your son that you're using as your avatar. Is there someplace online I can go to see it in more detail?

I made her AV bigger but it doesn't do it justice, it's a bit pixlated.

Thank you! I will tell him. He did that one about 2 years ago. He's a sophmore in Fine Arts at Buffalo State now, plans to be an art teacher.

Here is a bigger version...
