I am SO in love with books...
Every once in a great while I show you guys pictures of some of our bookshelves. We have 12 or 13 now (plus a few smaller ones in the basement for cookbooks and music books etc)...all full. Last week I was visiting Kimberly Loomis' lovely blog and she inspired me to show a few more of our bookcases:
It's fun to peek at other people's bookshelves, yes?
I must preface this post by making it clear that there is very little organization going on in these shelves. My system fell apart years ago. *sigh* Pretty much it's just a cram-it-where-you-can 'system'.
Here's a close-up of the shelves in this bookcase (I think you can click on the pictures to see them better/bigger):
This always feels so personal to me, like I'm showing you my inner workings.
Okay, this one (below) is my chick-lit and straight-up guilty-pleasure-reading bookcase...mock away (and Shroeder as Phantom of the Opera and his little baby grand. Yeah. That's right.):
I'd show you more of mine, but the Daughter (she's 14) wants me to show you a couple of her bookcases (she has several, and needs another) because she just moved her bookcases around:
(tried for a close-up here. sorry my photography is so lousy.)
The shelves below is another one of my daughter's books...
Okay, I've bored you enough...suffice it to say, we have MANY more bookshelves, all of them equally jammed full.
I have one full of JUST zombie books! Some day maybe I'll show you that one.
I bet you want to know if I forgot about my Back From Maine Contest?
Stay tuned. It promises to be EPIC.

- My name is Lola. (I'm not a showgirl) Yes, L-O-L-A Lola. It's the least of my worries. Let's move on, shall we? This blog is mostly about my misadventures on the journey to publication and beyond. My passion for lush prose, quirky characters, art, music, literature, performing arts and anything creative will be a major theme here. This journey of mine will not always be pretty. Much like rubbernecking a train wreck, I know sometimes you just can't help but look at the carnage that is often my life. So strap on your neck brace, helmet and 5-point harness and come along for the ride! Licentia poetica.
