    My meagre offering is one small bookcase with nothing really specialised just a mish mash of military related books..

    I think you'll get another bump when the ATB shelf gives way...

    Hello all,

    Well I've finally managed to bring some order to the mess that was my book collection. The spare room has at last been turned into my "Arnhem" room. No longer are the books scattered all over the house! They are now all neatly arranged on several bookcases and the smaller pamphlets etc are in a filing cabinet. I've also managed to hang several of the pictures etc on the walls! It's still a work in progress (have to convince the wife to let me put a desktop PC in there) but it's a start.

    All the best............. :)

    A lethal cocktail of Vodka, boredom, a new-found fascination with Image-stitching and a camera to hand leads me to participate again.

    Nice photo stitching Adam.
    I don't know what's most worrying - the books, the redundant cabling or the flea spray!

    A Vodka & Redbull just isn't right without a dash of fleaspray.
    At least I assume that's what it's for, as that stuff certainly didn't kill any fleas - that took far more investment.

    Redundant?!
    There is only one redundant cable there, and that's a serial printer adapter for a Psion organiser... but maybe one day I'll need it again...
    Roll on standardisation.

    Hebridean Chindit Lost in review...

    Thought I'd drop a first post in this one during the rather chaotic transition of my book stores... I won't post pictures at this point as they would be grounds for divorce to make them public... o_O

    The mention of Ikea and "Billy" book shelves much earlier in the thread reminded me of my own shelves, much smaller than those posted... but we have a few for display shelves, dvd's, books, etc...

    My immediate book domain sits adjacent to where I sit on the sofa normally doing my typing/scanning and has all my most recent purchases or those awaiting scanning and is a billy single width shelf cut in half and made to match the height of the adjacent window, with room for my coffee cup and the "floating" Tardis...
    Our bedroom houses another billy with the remainder of my Burma books, a shelf of Hebridean titles, one for SWMBO and another for my sci-fi titles... most of a rather significant sci-fi collection is boxed in the loft and will remain there until we move at some undetermined point in the future... a major bone of contention is the (multitude) of piles of books, dvd's, model kits, dotted around the place...
    An unhealthy collection of titles sit on this beastie I'm typing on, as well as several BUDdies (back-up-discs that have now become HDD's in their own right) lurking about... retired hard-disc-drives end up cannibalised and converted into coffee mats and wind-chimes... :D

    Well, after months of concern over my perceived addiction for collecting books about Burma, you guys and you're photos have made me feel comfortably sane.:D
