Sorry about the first one being a bit out of focus (and large!) difficult to get a decent angle! :roll:

I'll be organising the bookshelf over the next week in the new apartment so i'll take a pic or two .
We are setting it up with two book shelves, One ceiling high in the living room for collections and collectables and then a bookshelf in the guest room with work and study related books with a childrens section.

Nice collection meerkat . And dave showing off his jigsaw again :lol:

Couldn't be bothered to take a new new picture. Stay tuned in case I can be bothered...if I did take a new one, I'd be showing off less as there are books over flowing on top of the jigsaw now. :)

:lol: The older ones are second hand, the newer ones are always on sale in Tesco when they come out and I never pay more than a tenner for them. :wink:

Trouble is, Terry and Bernard Cornwell tend to bring out new books at about the same time and I've got a load of BC hardbacks. It's either that or wait until they come out in paper.

I would love to have a room for all my books, at the moment they are spread all round the house.
One thing you could really do with is a good sound system. There are 100s of pounds worth of books there by the looks of it, and a £20 stereo.
I love my sound system and have spent alot of time perfecting it, you know when it's good enough its when you get goosebumps.

:lol: My sound system may look cheap, but it wasn't. It's also a DAB digital radio.

Pervs like you lot was why I always had a room dedicated room for my books... well that and I had a couple of thousand.

My books were private. Its like putting your frilly knickers on display. That and the fact that when I was younger people were forever going AHHHH! and I love books so much I used to loan them and never see them again. I bought one book 15 times.

And yes I do go lopsided and see what you have on the racks. :D

Perv?? At least I havnt show my frilly knickers to anybody, I hide them under my leather skirt.

1000s of books!!!!!!! wow I'm amazed, I have possibly round 400 and thought that was alot. I understand the bit about lending them out, had the same problem so I never lend them now.

Sorry Tony if I insulted your stereo. Never had a digital radio, hardly ever listen to the radio. On my system my favorite bits are a Pioneer reference class A amp that I found. Then my speakers that took 2 months to build out of 38mm mdf covered with 10mm mazur birch (knotted birch) and mahogany (recycled of course) then speakers and filters for about £250.
