Ah....makes me think of my dream of one day having an entire large room devoted as a library, with lots o shelves and a small lounge chair. Right now most of mine are in boxes in a closet.

Probably need to start playing the lottery more regularly. Either that or sell my children.

See, back the other year when I emptied my room out to redecorate.. I ended up utilising the front room to pile my "library" in..

And this is what it looked like:

Hurlshot and I have the same notion re: ideal library. Except in that pic, I'd probably put another tall free-standing bookshelf or three in the middle of the lower floor. I have no need for area rugs and dance-room space in my library. :lol:

And Raithe - yeah..between books, old magazine collections, and DVD collections I could put up wall-to-floor shelves and line a couple rooms with them all, but at the moment I just keep out ones I re-read frequently. If I was rich I'd buy a lot more hardback/reference, photo, and non-fiction books for my fantasy library, too. Before digital books completely take over. :/

Wish I had more books, I just have a cluttered shelf. Guess I started collecting only when I left University, up to that point, it was all about the public library :p

See, my parents got me into reading when they gave me Enid Blyton books when I was around 5. Since then.. I've just collected a steady growth.
Last time I took a full count (not including rpg books or comics/graphic novels) I had just under 6,000. That was about hm. 3 or 4 years ago.

I worked as a security guard in college for awhile and was reading a few paperbacks a week it seemed. That really helped pass the time in between fighting mummies.

Took this one morning at work, rather nice view through the window near me. Almost makes it more bearable

Very nice, Malcador. :) Wish I had an outdoor view like that from somewhere indoors.

You could also host country house murders.

Oohh, a photo thread! Then I can finally show off some of my finest work!

I took this one night when I was strolling around in the bushes outside a dormhouse and saw a window that had NOT adhered to the warnings about a crazy stalker strolling around in their bushes at night. I aimed my zoomed in camera carefully and managed to get this incredibly sharp and morally perfected picture at first try. With one hand! Semi-running!!

I am very proud of myself.

What they don't tell is how much dust that place gathers in just a couple of weeks time...

I asked her permission. And if this wasn't a board set in the land of the free, I would upload the good pictures I've been taking of her. This girl is not shy. She's awesome.

One of my dogs (well sister's dogs, but whatever) unhappily showing his support

I really have way too many photos of these dogs.

Yes, why can't he be normal and go over the same circular piracy discussion every month, instead?!
