Good morning! 😀 It is the morning of my family gathering here at the house and I am feeling really good! I have worked hard the last couple of days prepping the house, the deck (which looks awesome!), the garage and yes, the finishing of the book room.
Now I know a lot of people who would not get excited about book shelves…. but I believe you, fellow book lovers, know how exciting it is to have room to put your books where you can find them and enjoy them. They look fantastic! So before I post the pictures know that most of these books are my private collection I have accumulated through the years. Library book sales, garage sales, ordered on-line and from my local Indy store… these are books that I have either read and loved, want to read, love the author so picked up others by the author… and yes, I admit some are unread and chosen because I love the cover or have heard good things about the book/author.
Ok before we move into the room I need to explain how we came to have such a space unclaimed in the house. Originally, this space was two bedrooms. When we moved here, we added on a master bedroom off the back of the house and finished off the basement and put a bedroom down there as well. Then Al (buddy) made this space his office for our business. After a couple of years we put an office at the business which is, quite literally, out behind our house. Al moved all his office things to the new space and I was left with a big space and wondering what to do with it….
for the past 4 years it has held book shelves and my writing tools…
Ok… there it is. While working on this project 3 bags of books were donated to the library. 4 more bags will be going to my book club for first pick in October and those they do not want I will take and donate to the Friends Of The Library sale.
I am about to enjoy a beautiful fall day with my relatives. Maybe, those will be next weeks pictures… 😀
