Brookside Bookshelves

What’s in your bookshelves? Right now I’m reading two books: Last Call, the Rise and Fall of Prohibition and Brideshead Revisited. I love fiction, especially the classics, children’s stories, and historical fiction. Needless to say, I had good intentions of blazing through that Prohibition non-fiction book, but I am losing steam. Nevertheless, it is a great book and is correlated to Ken Burns’ latest documentary on the subject of prohibition.

I am discussing books because lately I am dreaming of bookshelves. My house was built without bookshelves, and they would look perfect flanking the fireplace in my living room. I would love to have a proper place to keep my books, add to my collection and to display some oddities. Unfortunately, designing and constructing built-in bookshelves lies a bit outside of Mr. Snodgrass’s realm of digital expertise so if you know of an extremely talented yet reasonably priced carpenter, send him over.
