Today on the Kickin’ it Old Skool Blog-a-Thon, we’re encouraged to talk about books.
I’ve done this once or twice already. Earlier in the Blog-a-Thon we were asked to find the first line of the third book on our top bookshelf. This was a problem for me because I have so many bookshelves.
A few months ago, I wrote a post about just how many books my husband and I have, and the dangers of letting bibliophiles get married.
Today, I got the prompt while I was sitting in my office. Yeah, it’s a bit of a bookshelf wonderland in here too.
You see, I can’t imagine life without books. I love books. Fiction is great! Picture books are the bomb!
Books are a complete necessity in the sciences. In my office are my old textbooks (to which I still refer), and a whole slew of technical books to help me with my research.
This shelf has many of my old textbooks, as well as a whole bunch related to paleontology, my specialty:
These are the shelves behind my desk. These are mostly geology-related, though there is still a fair amount of paleontology to be seen. I use these books for teaching:
Libraries aren’t dead. This row of books is where I keep all my library books, so I can find them when the overdue notice his my inbox:
That’s just some of my books. I’m no doubt a bibliophile. I love books! (I’m also a bit of a slob, I’ve noticed after taking these pictures. I need to clean my office!)
How about you?
Heehee love the brain loading sign!
Love all the books! I recently whittled down my collection, but I still can’t part with quite a few. I try to use the library for my reading now, but if I really love something, I just have to buy it!
I’m definitely a bibliophile! I married a non-reader though, who reluctantly puts up with my books. He doesn’t understand, but knows it’s part of who I am and he even made me a book wall (pics on my post today).
Love the bookshelves! I have several of them myself. Love the brain loading!
I love the pictures of all of your books. My office isn’t too far off from that either and most of them are personal books, although quite a few related to my profession as well (finance / management). My wife likes books, but not quite with the same degree of enthusiasm as I. Enjoyed your post!
I love book also, but most of my are in a storage building, cause of the small apartment we moved in to. 😦 But one day my office will look just like that, but with fantasy book.
Oh the beauty of seeing full bookshelves – it makes my heart happy!
