Just read THIS entry at Alphawoman's Blog and was reminded of a photo of some of my books I posted a while back. As usual, I was reminded less of my entry and more of the amazing comments that were left behind by some of my favorite writers. Many of them are no longer here in J-Land, I'm still working on getting used to that. This is a repost...
My friend Vince posted and entry in his journal today asking what books are in the piles around our house. I have an entire closet in the computer room reserved for piles of books, I have easy access to them there and they are easy to put away ... I read a lot and use my books every day.
In his entry Vince mentions an entry in the Biblio Philes where Marigolds2 tells about the piles in the different areas in her house. I'm not to crazy about stray piles so my piles are the piles on top of the piles in that closet, most of the current reads will have sheets of scribbled note paper or beautiful bookmarks in them.
There were to many to list so, I thought I would just show some of them to you. I do most of my reading in the computer room, I sleep there most nights too on a comfy cozy daybed surrounded by many of my favorite things!
Thanks V for posting your entry and for the link to the Biblio Philes ... I see lot's of good ideas there for new books to add to my eclectic collection.
So ... what books are in your piles?

When we moved from Alabama to Colorado a little over three years ago, I had almost 100 cartons of books. My husband swore after moving them the second time from storage into our townhome, that I HAD to get rid of some of them. My Dad was a minister and upon his death, my Mom gave me all of his books. There are several sets of commentaries and the rest are mostly inspirational books with him having been a minister and all. My stepgrandmother passed away a few years ago and my stepfather gave me books out of her house, a whole wall full much to the dismay of my husband. I LOVE to read and already had many books of my own. I did finally donate some of my Dad's books to the church library and some to charity. I am probably down to 30 cartons or so now. Unfortunately the majority of them are packed up because I have no bookshelves as of yet to put them on, although my carpenter husband has collected material to build me some one day.........................................................................................................
I could spend my whole paycheck and his too on books!!!! Being a medical transcriptionist, I have medical reference books. I also have lots of books on writing, as I aspire to be an inspirational author "one day." I collect cookbooks, you name it, I probably have it. :) You can check me out at http://journals.aol.com/smjr43/Colorado. Really enjoyed your journal. I like the part where you said it does not get any better than this. I feel the same way about living in Colorado after living the whole first 42 years of my life in Alabama!!!!!

We have a big book shelf out in our family room. It is filled with the books we've collected over the years, forming a library full of excitement. I actually have a basket of about 10 books "in waiting" that are in my computer room/bedroom (kinda like your computer room). The basket houses the next 10 books I will read. That way I can look at them and know what books I'll be reading over the next few months!! I don't get enough reading time! Maybee soon I'll post a pic like you did. That was great idea.
I have some books by bedside....Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Consella and a Rachel Ray cookbook, and my Key Word Study Bible and my small group devotional book. Ah, it is just so fun to read.
