    Default Let's see one of your bookshelves

    In keeping with the very odd floor topic.

    This is actually a random section of book shelf. Sadly you cant see the best book "Cachorros." I think the oddest thing is probably the Italian translation of an Icelandic play. The first Left Behind book is also on that shelf. haha

    But I can't read the titles.

    Although I do recognize those as the "Little House" books of my youth. haha

    Do I see Goosebumps as well? I don't think Director Abbie has been an active reader since grade three.

    this shelf seemed the most appropriate because its the only one that isn't alphabetized and so has the most variety. it has old schoolbooks and a few i haven't read, though.



    edit: one isn't enough though

    You don't. I never read those. But Shakespeare is up there, as well as some other books not suitable for third-graders.

    Good. Goosebumps books are the work of Satan.

    I'm pretty sure I was reading Shakespeare's sonnets in grade three.

    • Packing my shit up for college, so this chair atm is a bookshelf.
    • Generally, the literature classics I do have are digital.
    • EXTREMELY, extremely distraught that I can't find my yellow Langenscheidt French-English dico though. >:/
    • Fun fact: my English teacher senior year gave me The Freshman Survival Guide and signed it as a goodbye present.

    I had *no* idea that Nightmare Before Christmas was a novel. Or did they just get a crumby ghostwriter to write one based on the success of the film?

    Unfortunately, my humble library is locked away in storage, but it wasn't that impressive to begin with.

    It's not :S I just have a few DVDs mixed in there because, for the most part, it's arranged by size.

    Kind of did annoy me, though, when they had someone write a book based on the Series of Unfortunate Events movie... which was based on the actual book series.

    Umm....

    .... are you serious?

    I'm not going to throw my books in the trash. I reread many of them. Nor am I going to throw them on the floor or keep them lying around my kitchenette. Hence: bookshelves.

I said my kitchenett is bare.. atm Meaning that I will want to furnish it at some point when I have the means too. I moved in by myself at the beginning of the year and my mum has all our books in storage fyi.

    Interesting, since most people don't do it with clothes and shoes and mugs, and they're equally decorative. Wankery? Or maybe just the fact they're rectangular and sit next to each other nicely.

    I sold half my books at the time for increased space earlier this year and the current lot are in "piled storage." Do have a pic of my old bookshelf somewhere though, possibly maybe.

    orphaned books that haven't made it to the shelf yet (aka what i'm reading right now):

    I don't really own many books because I get so much from the library, but this shelf has some of my favorites. I haven't actually read Thus Spoke Zarathustra or The Picture of Dorian Gray, though.

    You can safely skip Thus Spoke Zarathustra if you're older than 15 and you don't need to read it. Do read the Wilde though.

    Unfortunately most of the books i've read have been returned to the public library.

    Odd Thomas is my favorite novel.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    One post in this thread is really scary, the same way as that thread some time ago which I found pretty scary after reading one post and realising it can't be a coincidence.

    I mean, as if you read it once, read it twice, read it for the third time and nothing thinking nah it can't be, but after reading it for the fourth time I was thunder struck.

    Spoken like an Ni.

    I don't keep them because I hope others will read them so I donate them for reuse. I like the concept of New things, like the future where books will be easily accessible without paper products being used. I love your idea, but it's just too much space consumption.

    Did you know you can actually burn books to save space and dance around the fire while burning them and did you know books are, in fact, ozone friendly like this one?

    Anyway, me and myself included can't wait for the future where I'm going to be able to read books in pdf. and docx. format, too.
