I had to laugh when I saw your old bookcase.

When I got married we couldn't afford furniture. For months, our dining room table was a giant cardboard box. Our chairs were fiber drums.

Cardboard chic! LOL.

Very nice bookcase.

Nice bookcase. Some of my bookcases are not much different from your original, it must be said.

What's in it reveals that you are well-read.

Maria - that reminds me of the furniture I had in my very first apartment, all of which were other people's discards. The sofa had two broken feet so it was propped up on cans of peas until I got hungry one day and ate them.

It was a shabby little place but I don't recall being anything other than content in it. :)

Thanks, Loren, the book titles are clear in the photograph but I wasn't sure anyone could make them out in the scan.

And in the end what matters most is that you're able to locate the book you need when you need it. :)

Ilove your new bookcase. I'm a bookcase hound though. I have 5 tall bookcases filled with all types of books. I try to clean it out 2 times a year and trust me, it's usually a difficult thing to do. I feel like a kid that's forced to throw away old toys.

Marian, your inlined bookcase pictures link to larger versions of them, so that's how I was able to read all those book titles.

Marian Perera said...

Thanks, Loren. Clearly I'm not that well-read when it comes to computers and the Internet. :D

LM : I'd love to have tall bookcases like yours, but since I live in a basement apartment at the moment I'm trying to keep it small. But yeah, I dream about having my own place with lots and lots of shelves...
