    New Bookcases

    After a little too much money and over the course of about a month, I finally finished putting together my "reading room" along with my new bookcases! I've been wanting something nicer than what I've had for quite some time, but we were finally able to afford it.

    Here's a few more pictures of the room in general.
    My movie collection:

    I co-opted the closet and had a buddy help me build the shelving. You can't see it in the picture, but the shelves go to the ceiling. The only thing I regret is that we chose to repaint the room after we put in the shelves and I just don't want to go through the hassle of trying to paint around them.

    Here's the desk area:

    Here's a better picture of the posters. Mr. Chadbourne's Carrie print is in the center, flanked on either side by some minimalist posters of a few of my favorite movies:

    Up close picture of a minimalist LOST poster that I've had forever but never got around to putting up:

    And final shot of the last wall. Captain America always reminds me of my youth, so I had to have this:

    And a hat rack with a couple of bookends. The book is an old copy of Ghost Story by Peter Straub. It is opened up to display what I think is some of the best opening lines of a book:

    "What was the worst thing you've ever done?
    I won't tell you that, but I'll tell you the worst thing that ever happened to me...the most dreadful thing..."

    And just for fun: My dog deciding to use my old typewriter as a what had to be a very uncomfortable pillow:
