Show Me Your Book Stash Post
My "sis", Cath did this post so I had to follow suit. A number of these books I've had a long time so might look familiar to those who know me lol!
We begin with the small pile close to my reading chair... among these are: Touchstone by Laurie R King waiting for a second reading. Franklin and Winston, waiting for it's first reading lol. Sons & Brothers (J.F. Kennedy), The Girls (actresses), Lee Grant (actress) In the Garden of Beasts, Twilight of the World of Tomorrow, The Solitary House,Quincunx (which I may not read as the printing is very small) and the 2 Susan Hill books.
By another chair in the living room sits a few more books... a number are biographies and some others are about the Race to the Moon. Roosevelt and Kennedy books are scattered about also.
More of the same...
In the dining area I have a few more books.... I seem to have a few Charles Dickens and a few by Edward Rutherfurd. Also more biographies and autobiographies. Some of these books I've had for a few years!!!
Next to them, still in the dining area are some fiction and fantasy....
...Some Sherlock Holmes and some Trek Biographies (those are already read)
Bedroom... in this room are already read books that I am trying to keep room enough to keep!! Some here will "go with me" due to trying to "pry them out of my cold dead hands" when my time comes!
The group here in plastic, all books / guides on LOTR and Hobbit are in plastic because there are a number of autographs in the books!
..then there some books that I reread every few years...
More of the same below along with.. MIchael Scott's series on Nicholas Flamel, which I love, LOTR, and some Wilkie Collins. Some of my favorite books on the Space Race including one signed by Buzz Aldrin, and one of my favorite biographies called Stan and Ollie. The book Drood, I've read twice now.
My Stephen R Donaldson collection which I have read more than once.
On the bottom are a number of Art books.
..this whole book case "comes with me when I die!"... in here are my top favorites. Needless to say.. Anne McCaffrey's Pern books ALL come with me! I love David Eddings Belgariad series, Jonathan Strouds, the Bartimaeus Trilogy, Cornelia Funks Inkheart Trilogy..Weis and Hickmans Dragonlance Chonicles and of course the Harry Potter series.
I will put out the challenge for others to show their book stash on their blog and leave links in places like Facebook!
