    I have really shattered my budget(s) lately. Still haven't used a CC but damn I'm pushing my limits. Think I need to stay of the interwebs for awhile as my self control seems to have vanished. Plus I need to remember I have a few books yet to pay for with Camelot.

    I got all my bookshelves from my last job. I had just started there in 2002, when they announced that we would be moving to a new building that came with office furniture, so they were going to auction off most of the furniture in the current building. I bid on a desk (still using it 18+ years later) and as many bookshelves as I could, not thinking I'd get most of them.

    Apparently, very few people wanted bookshelves I ended up getting 28 of them at $5 each. When the day came to pick up your purchases, it was mostly people grabbing a nice chair and sticking it in their car. As the new guy, I got some funny looks when I drove up in a U-Haul truck and started loading up. I got the 28 bookshelves, two desks, and two chairs. One desk was just something I wanted as a workbench, and it's still in the basement.

    The bookshelves are scattered around the house (as many as my wife let me get away with), and the rest are lining the walls of the attic, mostly filled with older paperbacks. Once COVID is done, I have to sort through them and get rid of a lot. No way I'm moving these again.

    What's up with the glasses on top of the bookcase? Cap

    I like those barrister bookcases. At least most of the dust stays on the outside, unlike my shelves

    Looking good. We have a little knick knacky thing in our house that says "You can touch the dust, but please don't write in it".
