This is a post for Bren regarding bookshelves. We are big on books in this house and we have 5 different bookshelves. They each have their assigned books. Both Jim and I are collectors of books. Jim has an interest in WW2. His father was a pilot in Bomber Command. So Jim has many books about WW2. I am a big history buff and have quite a few history books. I love autobiographies and those trashy "who done it" novels.
Bookshelf #1 -- Quilting books, magazine and patterns. Pam's books. This bookshelf is in a very tiny room and was difficult to photograph, so I missed the top two shelves.
Bookshelf #2. Mostly Bird and Nature books, some WW2 books. Jim's books. The poster was done by a young niece that receive a first place in the Canadian Legion Remembrance Day Poster competition.
Bookshelf #3. Jim's books. Lots of fisheries books -- did I mention Jim was a Salmon Biologist so there are also a bunch of fish books around. I think he also has a few very old encyclopedias type books in here as well. I don't really pay attention to what he has for books as I'm sure he has no idea what I have for books.
Bookshelf #4. Mostly Pam's books. Novels, history, and travel books, some maps as well. There are a few of Jim's books mixed in here on the lower shelves, beer making books and a few old biology text books.
Bookshelf #5. Jim's books. These are mostly Jim's WW2 books. A bit of a bonus --- If you click on the picture you can see our wedding picture.
All of these bookshelves are in the lower level of the house, mostly in or just outside the TV room. My quilting room and computer room is also in the lower level. Anyway --- there you are Bren, my bookshelves. I do have one box of books in the storage room that I am saving for the grandchildren.
