The SIGNED AND SPECIAL books in the bedroom - that's where most of the signed ones are, though a few have escaped on to other shelves. The Lord of The Rings was a present for my 18th from my mum, the big Hobbit was for my 21st. The Thomas the Tank Engine belongs to Chris - his dad made it for him.
BIG SHELF IN THE PIT - the Pit is my study. The elft hand wall is all CD,s DVD's, games and books. The opposite wall is supposed to be work, but the work folders are having to give way to more books. I have a rare almost-complete collection of unsigned Terry Pratchetts.
BOOKCASE BY THE BEDROOM - the golf umbrella and skateboard are mine. More recent acquisitions get piled up on top unless I can cull space for them. In a previous flat we had to take the bathroom door off to make room for a bookcase...
BOOKSHELF ABOVE MY PC - this is mainly research books; history, psychology, child development, lit crit, pop science, dictionaries (I've got ten, including one of Euphemisms, a couple of place and baby names, one of literary theory and one of word origins - you can't have too many dictionaries!) Also I keep my published books on the top shelf, so I can look up at them when I'm stuck and feeling hopeless, to remind me that I've had books published and I'm not a dismal failure :) The Worn is from Labyrinth; he does a good job of propping the books up with his nose. On the very top shelf, out of the prying and sticky hands of my beloved god-children, are busts that Chris has bought me over the years.
HALLWAY ONE - goes floor to ceiling, that's the start of the alphabet!
SMALLER SHELF IN THE PIT - the books are encroaching here from the other side and alphabetical order has gone out of the window. These shelves are wider so they tend to attract junk. Orinoco Womble was another present from Chris- he's supposed to be tidying up these shelves but there's not much sign of it!
SMALL BOOKCASE IN THE LOUNGE - my longest-serving bookcase - I took it with me when I left home at 18 and it's survived eight house moves (buy your bookcases from B and Q, kids!) It's stupidly small, but it fits into those handy spaces where you can ALMOST fit another bookcase.... Most of our shelves were built to measure by Chris's dad, who appreciates the value of filling every spare inch with books. It was Jack who took the bathroom door off...
