With all this snow it's great reading weather! I have to admit, I just love looking at pictures of others bookshelves. I like to enlarge them and check out the titles just in case there's something there I can't live without!
My bookshelves are old and simply made, but I love them. Here are a few of the books on my shelves. As you can see, I love OLD books! =0)
Thanks, Mom, for all the C.S. Lewis non-fiction! =0) The Narnia books I collected on PaperBackSwap. "The Wind in the Willows" I bought after reading "Surprised by Joy" where Lewis mentioned it as one of his favorites. I loved it!
Some favorites and some I hope to read...
Ah, Tolkien! "Castle Blair" was a book C.S. Lewis read as a child.
I always adopt books on Jewish subjects when I find them at the book sale. Just a love of mine.
Remember Taylor Caldwell and Frank Perretti?
Old hymnals and Grace Livingston Hill...
I found out that G.M. Trevelyan was C.S. Lewis's history teacher in college, so I'm glad I found this "History of England" written by him. (I actually bought them before I knew of the connection. One of those book sale treasures! I love English history and literature.)
Jane Austen and Bill Peet! I read this Bill Peet book to the kids when they were younger and when I saw it at the book sale I had to rescue it! Poor little book!
Yes, I am an Austen/Bronte fan!
Scott, Trollope and Edith Wharton...
So many delightful books!
The virtual tour... - My sons, Jordan and Josh, were wanting to see my new place so I took a bunch of photos to give them a virtual tour. Hopefully they will load quickly today....
