    Some splendid bookcases gents and being as Paul, keeps buying two of the same book he might as well give them to me:lol:

    :lol: I now buy two of all the books published by small companies (such as Sigmond etc), as you never know how rare they are going to get! Just look at B Coy Arrived and Leading the way to Arnhem!! ;).

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

    Quantity has a quality all of its own...

    I'm sure I've never used the word eclectic before but with "Battle of Britian" and "Lifeboat Gallantry" straddling "Badass Lego Guns", what else can you say? :)

    Long, intolerable cruelty... or as the Late FZ used to put it, the torture never stops...

    Hallooo,

    Whenever I get tired of all the reading and researching I like to nip up to the tower and keep an eye on my pesky gardeners ... :P

    Still working on getting some final form of organization happening.
    Pics 5 & 6 are in my upstairs office. The rest are in my basement lair (where my wife refuses to go).
    I've also managed to take over the spare bedroom (temporarily or permanently is still up for debate).

    That mate is either a serious book collecting issue/problem or a fantastic collection of books .
    Safe to say on here, it is a fantastic collection of books.
