    I've just put up some new bookshelves to deal with the overflow.

    I'm a big fan of bookshelves on the whole, and a right nosy bugger about checking out what people have on theirs.

    Would a thread of pictures of bookshelves be cool? I think it would, but only time will tell.

    I'll whack some photos up tomorrow.

    Cool we are doing the same actually and will e getting a double shelf for my study. Right now my single shelf is over flow and the middle of the new double shelf will hold my statues etc. :)

    Hell yes a thread on bookshelves would be cool

    I made a book shelf a few weeks ago, nothing elaborate, just a weird wooden box I found left by the previous owners in my shed that was lined with plastic and it had dirt in it, I guess it was used for plants. I just took the plastic out, added shelves, sanded and stained it. I'm pretty happy about it. I'll show mine if you show me yours

    So now I have two bookshelves, the other is kind of cheap though. I really want to build a few more out of a nice hardwood until my entire living room is lined with them

    These shelves are literally bog standard, cheapest I could find, but before this all these books were piled up on my mantelpiece and I started to worry that they might pull it away from the wall eventually.


    I'd love to see yours if anyone wants to post 'em (and if they're homemade/creative bookshelves, that's all to the good, mine are plain as hell) I wanna be nosy about the titles you've got up.

    Mine are plain as hell as well.
    I can only see one pic though (not sure if you posted more?)

    So first pic, upper shelf
    First and last book, can't see what they are?

    Bottom shelf, midfle-ish
    That WEIRD book looks weird, and the next two books look interesting...especially the black one

    Hmm, yeah posted 3, I'll have another crack at it.

    So, upper shelf- first book (on the left) is The Narrator by Michael Cisco

    And the last book on the right is Spanky by Christopher Fowler, a Faustian-pact horror novel, then you can just see a red sliver of Civilwarland in Bad Decline, a short story collection by George Saunders.

    The Weird earns its title, it's a collection of weird fiction with 109 stories in it covering the whole of the 20th century, best anthology I own. Next to that (with the pentagram on) is a compendium of 3 occult novels by Dennis Wheatley (The Devil Rides out, To the Devil a Daughter and Gateway to Hell), next to that is the Necronomicon, the complete works of HP Lovecraft.

    Here's the other shelves

    Who wrote the Terror book?

    I see we have very different taste in books xD

    The office hippie bookshelf is constructed out of cement blocks and old lumber, although milk crates may be substituted in a pinch.
