It’s taken me a while, but I finally got my office in the new house in some semblance of order. I say “semblance” because I need to rearrange some of the things on the shelves. I also need to add a shelf to the book case in the center of the second photo. And put up some curtains. And…
But I digress. This is my writing/blogging/reading room. And no, this isn’t all the books. Most of the mass market paperbacks that have been unpacked, many of the hardcovers, and the digest magazines from the 80s and later are housed in the Library Annex, formerly known as The Guest Room. (Please don’t tell my wife I said that; she still thinks it’s The Guest Room.) This room has the collectibles, the graphic novels, the mysteries and crime, autographed books, and trade books by my favorite authors.
Some items of interest: In the first picture, the lamp is an antique I’ve had for years and just had repaired this past week.
In the second photo, the bookcase in the center is not flush against the wall. It’s the endcap for two foot long bookcases that come off perpendicular to the wall. I bought them as a set. The blue bookcase to the left facing out is designed to hold paperbacks. It’s one of two I bought when one of my favorite second hand stores (Book Tree in Richardson, TX) closed. I wish I’d bought more even though I had to go into debt to get them. The small bookcase with the R2D2 nightlight (yes, it works) contains the pulps. And, yes, that is a sword hanging on the left side of that bookcase.
