New home library
« on: November 12, 2019, 09:01:55 AM »
The home renovations project is just about finished. FINALLY!

Here is a picture of the new built-in bookcase in my home office. I'll have the desks and computers set-up over the next day or two and will post pics of those when ready. OVerall, I'm really happy with how the work shaped out.

Not bad. It is similar to my setup - I have one wall in my study set up as a bookshelf too. Its almost packed. Need to get another bookcase, on top of the two other standalones I have. I just canít stop buying books.

Damn I forgot about that.

I feel the need to post an image of my library.

By all means. For the record...this isn't my "entire library". There is another wall. These are just the new built-in shelves.

Everyone post their pride and joy! Below is mine, taken 5 minutes ago. Behind me is a window, the windows to the right in the image see out to the Hudson River, which is about a mile away. I will probably die in this room.

Very Dickens-ese Gus.  O0   I would never be able to get any work done in there, too many distractions. Great that you cleaned-up all the liquor stains off the desk before you took the pic. Pledge?

The Wife. Her computer blew up so she was on mine, which I hate :/

I threw her out and took the pic :)

I hate it when my wife comes along and cleans my cluttered, dust-encrusted desk and computer. I can't THINK unless it's messy.  :hide:
