March Show And Tell

I’ve had a great month and the last week has been weird but all will be told in the upcoming post; A funeral, a road trip, an invitation, a party and one awesome surprise. First of all my dad surprised me earlier this month with the announcement he was giving me two new floor to ceiling bookcases, which meant lots of drilling, sawing and refurnishing my guestroom at the same time. I had hubby smack on a new coat of wall paint so that it would become a nice refreshed looking guestroom with more shelves for me to place my ever growing book pile on. Of course hubby and I had a flaming argument in the store when the wall paint color came out all wrong...I thank the Lords above for hubby’s knowledge in how to change the color. I do not do construction well but still the results is making me happy. When we came home from a weekend spend at my parents we had energy left and I thought; “Why not start the book move now?” Oh how I made a miscalculation there…I thought a few hours would do the trick but I’ve only sorted out the living room bookcases and placed those books in alphabetical order. The bookcases in the guestroom with two third of my books still need sorting out, for now I’ll share just a few pics…

My livingroom bookcases as was...


A portion of the books leaving livingroom bookcases and moving to guestroom bookcases....


Brand spanking new bookcases to fill...how long do you think that will take me :)


Now I have something to reveal to you all, a new man who has been relentless in feeding my book addiction. A man who comes to me through the bitter cold winter weather, and now through spring time storms and showers. Of course if he is so wet I offer my shower, washing machine and dryer so he doesn’t catch a cold *grin* Last week my last book of March arrived and he was soaked, I took a picture of him on my bed and just had to share this view with you all. I’m not selfish…I can share!


These are the books he brought to me in March:

*Print:

Shayla Black – DELICIOUS (4 stars)

  2. OMG!!!!!!! I am *totally* jealous of your bookcases!! They are amazing! Did your dad make them or did you buy them and then just put them together? We don't have anything like that in the UK that I can find. You have to get them made bespoke which costs thousands! Sooo lucky..... :D

  15. Hi everyone - My post of "the book move" will be up in a few weeks which will contain many more pics. I was so happy to get these new bookcases and though it's still limited space I look forward to filling those shelves :D

    @Book Chick City - My dad purchases the wood and then handmade the complete bookcases. I think it is a total pricetag of 350 euro's. The wood isn't oak or anything but with the varnish hubby used it looks very warm IMO.

  19. I have bookshelves envy now! ;) Lady you are so lucky! I'm still trying to puzzle where I'm going to put my new books. I have officially ran out of space.

    Nice book haul! Good luck on the reading goals.

  20. I tried to avoid saying something about the bookcases, but they can't be ignored! Awesome! :)

    Your reading list is pretty impressive too! Very nice month for you, hon.
    And dang, the cover model of Rapture Untamed is hot!! *fanning myself*

  21. @Nikola - Welcome at my little corner, I hope you have fun here *grin*

    @Donna - I had the same thing when cramming more and more books in my livingroom bookcases. The problem is solved but it is a temporarily one I'm afraid...I think in another 2 years (if I can make it to that) I will have the same problem again :S


    @Janna - lol and i just wanted to comment on my progress so far with the bookcases, the actual book move post will not be up until 2 weeks or so *headdesk* I feel much better now that my reading is going better and I’m starting to appreciate the 200-250 pages long books more and more! And when I came by the cover of Rapture Untamed, looking at all those glistening ab violence on the cover I just had a blissful cover-gasm :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. LOL! It's not that I don't want to know about your bookcases! It's just that I wanted to be a parrot ;)
    I'm really happy for you that your reading is going better! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow these bookcases are gorgeous. Me wants. LOL

    And it's a really nice reading list you had there. Hope April goes even better for you.

    And I have to say I'm swooning over the Ecstasy in Darkness cover. Can't wait for that one.

    Have a great Easter weekend hon!
