Love getting new bookcases! Lots of fun reorganising all your books, or in my case sitting staring at them for hours trying to work out how to reorganise them!

the post in which i tickle your nerd bones with this corner of my office shelf.



from the glories of vax/vms to the original screenplay from the mike meyers' "the guru" back before it came out renamed "the love guru".

while much, much larger, my fantasy shelf is much, much less interesting.

I would like your post, but one of your books is upside-down.

Touché.  ;D

I've never read a book on coding in my life. Okay, that's a lie - I did skim through PHP For Dummies once. I've only read one book on coding in my life. I've always wondered if they're actually useful...  :o

Good to know! Stack Overflow seems to cover most problems, Google solves the rest.  :P

We reeeeally need to finish making our shelves. Only a couple of things left to do, and we haven't touched them for something like two months now.  :(

I have moved my TBR pile downstairs for the moment having dreamed of being crushed under piles of books. I have 40 odd physical books and at least 20 more on the kindle. Lean times are a comin so I have been stocking up.

I want to reorder those books lol

Good lord and I thought I was bad :O

There are so many books in that pile I want to read too, but seriously as your book-psychologist I'm here to say STOP BUYING ANY MORE BOOKS HOLY BALLS.

So many pretty books :( so little time.

Don't buy any more! Read those first!

I know how you feel, @Rostum.

I posted this: http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/fantasy-book-discussion/help-my-tbr-pile-is-intimidating-me! nearly two years ago and have only read eight (!) books from that pile and added many, many new ones...

I have rules.

No work reading or reference makes that pile. They live downstairs and are only touched during daylight hours.
Books I have read don't go in the pile unless I have bought them again. Some of those books have been there a while, several years for some. There is no rush and I don't start them in any order.
I have bought a lot recently as I may not be able to buy books for a while so a bit to read wont do any harm and probably a lot of good. I keep books and when I have read them they insulate my walls and gather dust until I chose to read them again.
