    Thanks, guys.

    Martin, there are 3 more bookcases — two barrister-style and one standard — in an alcove on the other side of this room, but no way to include them all in one shot. There are 6 more bookcases in an upstairs loft, most of them also glass-fronted.

    Beautiful Ron. I have about half my books behind glass at this point. My target is to get that number to over 80% this year. How many other rooms do you have books? I realized that I have books in every room that does not have running water.

    Fantastic looking library. Love the bookcases with the glass doors. Those are the ones on my wish list.

    No, it is not. You are a wise book collector and you are one with your books. If you place the book in the wrong spot, you'll get booked. ~Cap

    LOL. Okay. I didn't connect the dots from your original post. That is an amazing prize.

I have the Turtle Boy manuscript signed by Kealan Patrick Burke and an original Turtle Boy sketch signed by Kealan Patrick Burke. I also have Stage Whispers: The Collected Timmy Quinn from Thunderstorm Books.

The seller had them listed for $50 and recently slashed that to $25 so I finally knuckled under and got the two novels. I just made the purchase after looking at the two books for months. Since we've been shut down here I think I've read five books. I just finished Nemesis by Kealan Patrick Burke which for me was a hard book to read.

    Nemesis is part of a series. Had you read the prior stories?
