Today we have an occasional light snow shower with filtered sun breaking through once in awhile. However, wind gusts continue over 30 mph and the snow is soft and fluffy... can we say heavy drifting? More snow is possible this weekend.
Did you hear Chicago had an earthquake? Even the sod beneath us is tired of all the snow. :)
Yes, I love to see what people have on their bookshelves. In yesterday's picture, all the D. E. Stevenson books that I own showed up except for Miss Buncle's Book (which is hiding by Mrs. Tim Christie). Now you can see them in this picture. Both of those books were gifts from like minded blog friends. I found the others at thrift shops. I can't wait to read the Stevenson books next month and I'm hoping to find a couple more at the library.
Lark Rise to Candleford and (the sequel) Still Glides The Stream are autobiographical books by Thompson which were recent purchases with Amazon credit. I love old books and was very happy to find inexpensive copies in great shape through a used book dealer (although Lark Rise is still in print). For Stevenson fans, yes... there is a Still Glides the Stream on the bookshelf written by Stevenson... same title but different authors.
Lanier has a beautiful post about Lark Rise... here, which will explain more about them. I first read about these books in the old Victoria magazine. There is a BBC series based on the books. I've heard they are based on the books but do not follow them closely.
Here is a glimpse of another section of bookshelves...
... and another section.
Another little peek? Two Patrick Taylor books are hiding on this shelf. (His first two, which were gifts from another blog friend along with the English diaries which I believe are hiding, too.) It's just a good place to prop the Christmas present Steph gave me a year ago.
Okay, you talked me into one more...
... not to mention books in the kitchen.
Lots more books which escaped the lens of the camera this time... and to think Christopher's friends don't believe we've given away more than we own now (there are bookshelves in both bedrooms and the little office). I guess some people don't understand downsizing. :)
How did we build our library? Book sales, thrift shops, garage sales, gifts... over many years.
