I'm stealing a bit of a page from my lovely wife's Blog here, sort of. (sorry Jo.). I'm no designer, heaven forfend, but I do like to show off my books. Well, in the early days, like back in university and my beginnings in the Canadian Forces, I didn't really have the wherewithal and room to really display my books at all.
So using my limited financial resources of the time; I was still an Officer Cadet, making about $400 per month, from which I also had to pay rations and quarters, I did acquire some items, note the fancy bookshelf from Canadian tire and the TV trays. Heck, seeing the speaker in the corner between the desk and bookshelf, brings back fond memories of my old quadraphonic 8-track stereo system.Those were the good old days.
Anyway, my display abilities were minimal as you can swell see. I'm trying to see some of the books I may have had back then, but it's much too difficult to read. But my collection was building.
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Covenant of the Vampire trilogy. This was my master bedroom, although when my daughters came to spend a weekend, it was there room and I moved to the other bedroom. :0)
