On the shelf.

Following on from last week's challenge, for which I created a layout featuring several of my books, I thought I'd share some of my favourites with you.

So, I've photographed some of my bookshelves, uploaded them to my Flickr gallery and added notes detailing some of the titles etc. You're welcome to go and have a look at them here.
I ought to offer my apologies to Kirsty, who is still in the process of unpacking and settling into her new home, and who may be a little upset at the sight of my somewhat tidy bookshelves. She mentioned today that a pile of books is currently, efficiently, serving as her bedside table which is a rather ingenious combination of a furniture solution and a source of handy nightime reading matter for the restless sleeper. My books, arranged by theme in a minor version of the Dewey-decimal system, ;) may seem rather obsessive-compulsive in comparison ... but, like they say, if the cap fits ...
For a list of some of the the titles pictured above click here.
I've copied this idea from Carl who used this method to share some of his photography books via Flickr.
So, why not go and have a closer look at some of my bookshelves here + here then snigger, sneer and furrow your brow at my taste in literature or raise an eyebrow in recognition of some familiar titles. Either way.... after you've had a peek, if you'd like to leave me a comment here, or over on Flickr then I'd be happy [well, on second thoughts, maybe I won't be entirely ecstatic if you just want to let me know that you hate all the books I hold dear] ....then I'd be interested to hear what you've got to say!
We'll be back with another challenge very soon ... in fact I've been dismantling some earrings this very day in preparation for it!

I am thinking about all the books I have yet to find a place for and am sympathising with Kirsty and...um...I have insomnia. Gah.

You want Dewey'd?? Cos I've got the Diploma and I'm not afraid to use it! Love those decorating books.

I love to stack books and found this wonderful bookshelf at DWR and thought I'd pass it along:
