The bookshelf project #41

And we have our first set of bookshelf pictures for 2013! Woot woot! These awesome pictures come from a blog reader named Jon. Let's look closely at Jon's shelves, shall we?

The 2 pictures below are bookshelves made out of bricks! How cool is that? I think they're very utilitarian (and I imagine sturdy), and Jon mentioned that these were quite cheap to make.

Brick lovin'
More brick lovin'
Jon is big on chess. He has a whole bookcase devoted to this fine sport. (Wait, chess is a sport, right?) I remember my dad having lots and lots of chess books too.

Jon's chess books somehow inspire me to
take up chess again as a hobby.
Below is a picture showing most of Jon's books. Topmost books are on poker. Below that, 2 rows of classics follow. In the left bookshelf are mostly nonfiction titles (e.g., science, history, and general knowledge).

The uber-thick book at the leftmost corner is
The Complete Illustrated Shakespeare
edited by Howard Staunton and illustrated by Sir John Gilbert.
Jon's cozy corner
If you look closely, the web page shown
on the monitor is KyusiReader!
Thank you, Jon, for sending these pictures. I hope you're having a wonderful start to 2013 in terms of reading!

Wow, the project is back!

While my daughter is coveting the Sir John Gilbert's Shakespeare, I adore his globe collection, especially that one on top of his fridge. :)

Yep, it's back! I still have some waiting to be featured! I would love to have that Shakespeare book myself!

I hope to get my basement library organized by the end of summer and will send you pics~

So excited to receive your pics, Harvee!

Can I just say what a comfort to find an individual who really knows
what they are talking about online. You actually know how to bring
a problem to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand
this side of the story. I was surprised that you
aren't more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.
