I am fascinated to see other people’s book shelves so here is some of mine.
I am about to write a blog about the things I read but here is the photo first.
Now what i can tell you about this image is that I like my books generally grouped in themes. Mr TP has some sort of OCD problem so it tortures him to see books on their sides on top of the others. They should all be standing very neatly and perhaps in alphabetical order.
When I say OCD problem, it is no problem to him, he knows how he wants things to look. I am the one with the problem, I have to live with him and his funny ways! I’m happy with my shelves looking like this and MY books are arranged in a sensible order that I understand. It works – I know where to find any particular book and I do not need to remember the name of the author.
Despite having a small library at home I do try to get rid of books frequently, so you can see on my shelves there really are just the very best and the classics that one would want to read or refer to time and time again (and a few I haven’t read or am only half way through or just can’t decide whether I want to keep them or not…).
