The Gallery .... Books

I'm joining in with The Gallery and this week the theme is Books ....

I have a bit of a confession. I really am quite fond of books. SOME people *looks at my mother reproachfully* might say I have a bit of a book problem. And this from a woman who spent her working life in a library and is totally, unequivocally and absolutely to blame. *Tuts*

But really, I can handle it. It's not a problem. It's totally under control. Totally....


I mean when you have shelves you have to put SOMETHING on them. Though when you run out of shelves, there's always next to the bed and, um, under the bed ....


Of course, I don't just buy books for me because that really would be selfish and I'm all for sharing the love.

So you see, it's absolutely no problem AT ALL...

  1. Ha ha, that is mad!! I love books too but don't even have that much shelving in the entire house! I am squinting to see how many of yours are in my collection.

    1. I would love one of those pokey old antiquarian second-hand bookshops but I'd never be able to sell anything :) x

  3. Haha we also have books under the bed because we've run out of bookcase space but I have plenty more walls where shelves can go...only job left is to buy the shelves and leave them to hubby to put up!

    1. Ha, easier said than done. My OH only really took to putting shelves up when he couldn't get across a room for the piles of books in the way :) x

    1. Shh, but the ones under the bed are the tip of an iceberg that extends much further under the bed *shamed face* :) x

  7. I think you might be good candidate for BA (bookaholics anonymous). Mission isn't to give up books but to find an extra hour on the day to read some!

    1. I've read the ones of the shelves which are mostly much loved and already read books I can't bear to part with and I've read some of the ones next to the bed and not very many of the ones under the bed. Though I have a lot of reference books, dictionaries and bizarre fact books I keep just in case I need them at some distant point in the future :) x
