Bits and Pieces of My Library

I thought that today I would post some pictures of my new library. Turns out Harvey liked the idea so much he moved in his computer desk and laptop computer. He took over a corner of the room cause he says it is starting to look very cosy! These are the book cases that Harvey made for me. I had a lot of fun filling the shelves. Fact is I probably could have used another two or three cases as I did double rows of books according to author on quite a few of the shelves. I finally have all my Nancy Drew books out on display and can see which ones are missing.

This is the corner that Harvey choose for himself. I have a feeling that it is going to be a fight to see who gets to use the laptop more.


And what is a library without a phone. It will come in handy when I am sitting nose buried in a book.
I have some gardening books, and a few others to move into their new home yet. Hopefully I will get them down there later today.
Everybody have a wonderful evening. Off to visit you all now. God bless.

Jackie,

I love your bookcases. Harvey did a great job on them.

This is going to be a great place for you to enjoy your books. How many Nancy Drew books do you have? It looks like you have most of them.

I had the original 50 in the blue covers that came out before these ones. Alas, Mom put them in the basement of the old house and they all mildewed. Dad burned them. Now I have very few, but the ones I do have are the yellow ones. Those were good stories.

I hope you and Harvey both enjoy the library. It does, indeed, look cozy.

OH~~~ What a beautiful job! That is so neat that you both can be in the library together. I just love the bookcases. The white trim is pretty also.
Have a wonderful day,

This is wonderful~ Mr. Harvey is so talented... A wall size bookcase that is extraordinary!

It's such a shame when books are stored in boxed...

Stay warm-hugs!
