Put up a small bookshelf today. I'm using scrap wood for everything. This piece I think was once part of one of the walls in the kitchen. It was painted white with a sort of red residue underneath which I had to strip off but it was just the right width for the shelf I wanted so... Anyway, there are now books in my room. Much better!

The books currently on my shelf. It's a bit of a mix of books I like to read, books I'd like to read and books I probably ought to read, and some that I figure I might enjoy on a rainy day. I have more books than this but they are stored away in the shed or on other people's bookshelves and occasionally I will do a big switch around and my bookshelf will then look entirely different. Tolkien stays, though.

Excellent shelf building skills :D A book shelf makes any room look much nicer, also. I mean when it has books on it.

If I had more space I would have more books. I'm just really enjoying the bare walls and the lack of clutter! There are no bare walls in this house. This summer D wanted a poster of France up (with the Tour de France route) and he had to dismantle an entire wall of shelves and relocate I don't know how many serving dishes and various condiments. For a poster. Of France.

Thank you! Yes, there are certainly Tolkien books. The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales ought to be somewhere, too, but I can't find them.

Yes, it is. And I've learned to use no less than three different saws in the process! You wouldn't think it would be so complicated just by looking at it...
