First, I have winners to announce. The winner of The Housekeeper and the Professor is:
And the winner of The World in Half is:
Yay!! If you two would be so kind as to email me with your address, I’ll mail you your book.
Also, Care pointed out that in my post I transposed The Housekeeper and the Professor. Ack…blonde moment! I’ll fix it one of these days. Maybe.
Also, also…you guys are funny. Thanks for the giggles with the Twinkie rhymes. Especially since I just about forgot I had put that in the post and I was initially confused as to why Jill was talking about a binkie.
Also, also, also…lookie, lookie:
New bookcases! I am so excited. Especially since I put them together all by myself. I just want to sit in front of them all day long and stare. And did you notice? There’s still an empty shelf! And that other bottom shelf is books I need to get rid of, so really, I have TWO empty shelves. Plus, the old bookcase now has room:
Three shelves!! Maybe I should go to the bookstore?
And, since I’m trying to cram as much stuff as I can into one post and this is going to also count as my TBR post for Lisa, here is the other shelf of books in the house:
This is actually a hutch that belonged to Hamburger’s grandparents that I think is ugly (note the plant futilely trying to hide the curly-cued wood). So while the bottom cabinet provides storage, I use the top shelf to display things that make me happy.
Not all of these shelves are TBR shelves, although most of them are. In the new bookcases, the top two shelves of each are books to be read. The third almost-full shelf is travel books. In the old bookcase, the bottom two shelves are reference books, so those don’t count either.
I still have two little piles of books that I need to recover from elsewhere in the house and shelve with their friends. But I no longer have them stashed away in closets in drawers. My books are so happy to be standing upright and together!
