Finally

Just for you, just because I know you needed this, I finally got around to taking pictures of the two rooms that we nearly filled with books.
The sunroom is now the "library". There are bookshelves on two walls (and casement windows on the other two). We're still waiting for two cabinet doors; one of the missing ones is visible (to the right of the door with the grey/blue panel). And look! Empty shelves! Room to grow.
The vertical run of shelves visible here in the dining room is nothing but books on food and cooking. Well, except for a speaker and a toy car.
And remember the Shakespeare bookshelf/sculpture? It's finally hanging, in the dining room.
That is all.

Dude, that looks amazing! You should see my books all slopped all over the place. Feelin' some envy.

It looks so cozy yet elegant. Would love to snuggle up with a book, pillow, and blanket on the floor.

I'm jealous, jealous, jealous. But happy for you, of course. I can't wait to have my books about me!

Gosh what a nice room! But you're going to have to explain "empty bookshelves" to me. I don't know what that is.

I just died a little seeing those photos. I don't know if I can go back to work.

The shelving over the doorway? This is my dream. Sigh. Sigh sigh sigh sigh sigh. Wonderful.

I think that just may be my partner's dream room. Seriously. You should see his collection of books that are mostly in boxes b/c we have no room or place to put them. And the Shakespeare thing? Omg, he would looove that.

I love the sight of full bookshelves. Mine have a lot of games stacked in them at the moment, but some day they will be full of books.
