I just took a few shots of most of the bookcases in the house to start with. Many of these are in the attic, which is due for a good cleaning out.

Almost every shelf is stacked two levels deep with books. Time to get rid of some of them, I think.

I'm curious why you have 3 copies of The Non-Fiction are they different in some way?

I bought one, got one as part of the first CD Book Club, and the third copy came in a grab bag.

The first Book Club (years ago now) was always a good idea but at first it was too easy to get books you had already purchased. I think the first five books were dupes for me. It's never been an issue since, though - they fixed it!

Why don't you sell them? or give them away ;) No point in taking up space with 3. I know some people don't like selling their books but since theyre copies you got accidentally I don't see any point in keeping them. Looks like you need the space as well.

Yea I think the first book club was done before we had our current ordering system, which lets us easily send notes to people telling them not to order something because it's in the book club and what not. (way before my time)

Edit: Great stuff by the way. Really looks like you need some more room... lol

The paperbacks were all purchased back in Ireland and before I had the money to afford hardbacks.

This copy of The Shining is beat up. I remember buying it in high school and reading it many times.

It's not that I mind selling books, I just don't have the time and patience to bother. I need to do something, though, like make more money and move to a bigger house!

If you want to send me your mailing address I'll send you a copy of the Non-Fiction...that'll free up a spot for The Twelve :)

Dave1442397

Thanks, Grant! I don't think it compares to yours, but what it lacks in quality it makes up for in quantity. When I get around to cleaning out the attic (full of obsolete kid stuff) I'll have to see what's worth showing here.

If the interior decorating were up to me I think every wall in the house would be built-in bookshelves. I tried to sell my wife on that (Insulation! No painting, ever! Stunning array of colorful titles!) Didn't work :)

I have a movie room (if you can call a 73" TV big enough for that). I set it up with a nice surround sound system and banished all kid toys from it. Now my wife watches NJ Housewives (or whatever it's called) and I'm here on CD. It has a nice long wall (20 feet or so) that is completely unused right now. Even my wife liked the idea of floor to ceiling bookshelves on that wall, so that may be my winter project.

We also want to reclaim most of our office and turn it into a nice reading room for the winter. We found out that what we thought was just a badly-smoking wood-burning fireplace is actually already set up for gas, so we're getting a gas insert, a nice comfy couch, and banishing the treadmill and kid toys from the room.

A quote (wrongly) attributed to Mark Twain: "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco".

I remember driving from Lake Tahoe to San Francisco one morning. It was beautiful in Tahoe, but when we stepped out of the car in SF we were freezing! Shorts, T-shirts, and it was maybe 60F at 11am. Brr!

Sounds just the opposite of our road trip out west when I was a kid. On the way home (in early April) we left Vegas in the morning in shorts & t-shirts, and when we stopped for the night in Utah, it was freezing.

well you do actually for the most part. You guys get more mexicans, I don't think I have even seen a mexican in person before. lol. We get egyptians, french, phillipinos, and well americans for the most part. The first 3 of which can be highly rude and the latter depends on the person which more often than not are very rude, no offence. You guys are great.

I find that the foreigners that come here (America) to make a living are very nice. Granted their culture can clash with ours given the differences in what is considered "acceptable behavior" but there is a learning curve you have to give them. Just like we would need if we were to move to another country.

The ones that come here get mad at us for not speaking their language even though they can't speak ours and theyre in our country. Thats the one that pisses me off. And they take the jobs we don't have to begin with which is not part of the rudeness it just pisses me off. A guy mason knows came here, worked for 3 years and left with a canada pension at about 30 years old. How does that make sense? I have lived here my whole life, can work for the next 40 years and still wouldn't be able to get a cp until I am 60. This guy can go back home, not even live in canada and get a pension that makes him rich in his own country.

The only part of the language issue that bothers me is that some will complain that things aren't in their language and expect businesses and other places to provide materials in alternate languages. Don't get me wrong, I think it is great when I go to a place in another country and they have material in English but in no way do I feel that the business is obligated to provide this material. And I know its not easy to learn a second language for some (like me, I took 4 years of spanish and can barely speak it) but to not make an effort is irritating.

Now back to Daves books.

No grab bags :) Bentley Little's The Haunted should be arriving today, and something got shipped from Gauntlet Press yesterday, but I have no idea what it is. I better ask my neighbor to look out for UPS packages while we're on vacation!

That might take a while. I really need to clean out the attic just so I can get to some of them.

What I really need to do is go through my CD/Sub Press books and sort out the duplicates. I'm sure I could get rid of some of those.

Allow me to add my 2 cents to the whole "moving" topic - I'd be fine with just moving back to NJ. ;)

And now back to the books: that was a really good deal on those bookcases!:)

Great stuff. Saw your Borderlands 'In the Night Room'. Do you have 'Lost Boy, Lost Girl' as well.

Also where did you get the Wraith?

I may have Lost Boy, Lost Girl, but if so, it's buried in the stack somewhere.

The Wraith came from my parents, who bought it from Newbridge Cutlery in Ireland. They show it on this page, but I don't see it listed once you click through - http://www.newbridgesilverware.com/products/giftware

It's just a coincidence that it looks like NOS4A2, but it is a good match to the book.

Thanks Andrew! I know I could peruse your shelves for weeks on end.

I've really cut back on book purchases in the past few years, just because I was running out of room. I decided to just collect the ones I really love in hardcover, and get most of what I read as ebooks.

Looking at the ebook folder, I shudder to think how much physical space 41GB of books would take up...

Yeah, EOW should be here tomorrow :)

I ordered the Illustrated Edition of 'Salem's Lot from Amazon when it first came out, and had it sent to my office (small company at the time). USPS showed it as delivered on their website, but a week later it still hadn't shown up. Amazon said they'd send another copy. The second copy arrived two days later, and then the original copy showed up the day after that. No idea where it was hiding for two weeks. Need one?

The bubble wrap to the right of the 'Salem's Lot paperback? That would be the CD Carrie art portfolio. I left it in the bubble wrap for now. CD may make a slipcase for all the art portfolios once the six books in the series are done.

Gotcha. I had a package from Kim over at Camelot get stuck in KC for about 3 weeks before it finally showed up. Who knows on these things. I am in need of a much better copy of the illustrated if you want to PM me the details. Thanks! :)

Love that e-book collection, you've got me crushed! What's your favorite reading device?

I'm on the Voyage and keep a ton of stuff loaded on there, and usually think of it as the greatest book in my collection.

I have a kindle paperwhite with backlight, and I love it. It's perfect in daylight, low light, and no light at all.

It's nice to be able to read on planes without disturbing other people with the bright reading lights, especially on those trans-Atlantic redeye flights. I never sleep on planes.

I always seem to have around 200 books on the kindle, and I love that. I remember the days when I traveled with paperbacks and hoped I didn't run out of reading material...a scary thought!

Kindle Paperwhite gen. 1 was my first e-reader and it skyrocketed the number of books I went through. I figured it sounded close enough to the physical book experience to give it a shot and am glad I did; it's just tough to beat the read-anywhere convenience. Tablet fans don't really know what they're missing: easy on the eyes, no blue-light reading en masse. I LOVE that device.
