One's book collection can tell a lot about a person's personality IMO. X

well here's the last lot of books I bought. I gathered these mostly (with the exception of the bowie book, plant and young) from my fave 2nd hand book store. I bought these over 2 weeks. I was a very happy bunny. :D

This is fab
    Tibblerocks. Just looking at it I want to read them all at once. I am a terrible book junkie :lol: :lol: :lol: Thank God there is no book anorymous association. Thank God for the Kindle. I just keep buying books on it. :lol: . I will try and post a picture of my small bookshelf in a mo. My bookshelf houses historical novels and supernatural novels. I like estoric books and anything to do with a holistic lifestyle like yoga etc. Vegetarians books. Quite normal for me and those who know me. However when they see guitar books and books on rock god its like what??? :lol: NevermInd (eat your heart out Nirvana). There two Subys. The sweet quiet one and wild one. ;) :lol:

    My mother showed me my Ladybird books from the early eighties. She keeps stuff of her kids from childhood. It was interesting to see how worn they were. Not because 30yrs have passed but I read them so much from cover to cover. My brothers Ladybird books from the late eighties less so worn down. I use to spend so much time reading and so much time in libraries. It was my haven, sanctuary and still is. Just love the smell and feel of a good book. Subrata.x

    Ladybird books - now there's something I hadn't thought about for a very long time. Topsy and Tim - now that's how I learnt to read. I can't bring myself to buy a kindle. I need to be able to physically hold a book. It's a tactile thing. I would love to be able to wander amongst Rory's books. I was very intrigued by a few of the books that appeared on his bookshelves. I love that giant poster Daniel came up with. Rory's living room looks like mine - books and a guitar.

    Biblioporn! I love it. So jealous, what a score. When I have a minute on my next day off I'll share some of my book bounty. It's so fun to see what others are reading. Thanks also for the pic of Rory's music books. Can't get enough of that!

    BTW I love those LadyBird books. Why didn't we have any scholastic books on bomb making and pirates when I was a kid? Dang American education...

    I want to borrow the Yardbirds book in the bottom left corner. It's the one here in the picture. Do you think we could sell the idea to Donal of giving guided tours of Rory's books? ;-) I knew Rory like Dylan, but he REALLY liked him. How many books? And Elvis. There's books on Fender, Hendrix, The Stones, Jazz records, Brian Jones, Jerry Lee Lewis and I'm pleased to say Led Zeppelin. So Rory must of had his books in sections - that photo is obviously the music one. The poster the crime section? We need photos of his books. I'm such a nerd :oops:

    I have got a copy of The Yardbird book cos I was reading up on Eric Clapton. No family and friends insisted I get a Kindle. I gave load and loads of books to charity in the last year or so. It was a wretch to do so but I had no choice. No room for them. Others would enjoy them and it makes money for the charity shops. It also helps to bring in new energy into my life. Its great to declutter. I am looking forward to my book discussion at the bookclub I helped to create in London. Nothing like bringing folks together to discuss books. The bookclub has been a success and brings in folk from all walks of life:- the young, the old etc. For me its a good way to unwind with friends who have a common interest. Just love it. Can't wait to promote my own books at my bookclub. Pity in the UK councils are trying to close down libraries and bookstores are going out of business due to online books. Same story everywhere due to the recession. However some people still want a real book in their hands and there have been protests against the council to keep our public libraries open. They are needed by the community for social reasons. They are great meeting places. There are voluntarily runned bookshops as well and I love rummaging in charity shops in London that sells books on the cheap. Subrata.x
