I am usually short on bookcase space. Although I have a large dedicated library, I have to have a bookcase in just about every room in the house. I had to make a deal with myself a few years back that if one book came in, another had to leave, and that was after I really purged, about 300 books worth. On a side note, unfortunately, one of the books that went in a box to the Charlottesville library book sale was The Godfather. What say you, no big deal. Well, it was. It was a first edition, signed by the author and worth several thousand dollars!! Who would have thunk? Now I check every book I think about giving away before I make that mistake again. I could have bought a whole lot of books with that money.
So, with that said and done, I obviously love a bit of whimsy, and although I plan on posting on the more practical aspects of bookcases, from what kind, to how to decorate them, I came across these fun examples in my research, so I thought I would do a post on them first to keep from crying again over Mario Puzo and a now someone else’s expensive book.
Have a great weekend. Heading to NC for the weekend. Thanks my wonderful readers. Laters, charisse
