My Bookshelves - Part One

My Bookshelves - Part One
Sue over at Frugal in Suffolk had a series of posts recently about her massive book collection, I loved looking at them (I don't actually think she's finished yet) and comparing which titles we had in common.  I said I would join in and show mine too as I have been getting a lot of requests to see them.  
(Thanks for the emails Joanne ... see I told you I would do it ... eventually ...LOL !!)
My Bookshelves - Part One
This set of shelves is near the doorway to the bathroom, which rather unusually is off our living room !!  So I get to pass these lovely books on a very regular basis ;-)
Most of our hundreds of books (I will count them and add the totals to each post) are non-fiction, although I am going to try and make time to read a bit of fiction this year, I've read somewhere that it's supposed to be very good for your brain to have time off for learning from books and relax into a fictional world.
Which sounds to me like a very good excuse to have yet another book on the go :-)
This shelf has my Hovel, Garden and Kitchen in the Hills books, which rather ironically were written by Elizabeth West about their lives when they lived on the hill across the road from us, but they were much higher up than us on a level with a house we viewed before we bought this one.  The only reason we didn't buy that one was that we would never have gotten our animal trailers up there, the track was only wide enough for our smallest car ... the cottage was my dream cottage though ... shucks!!
My Bookshelves - Part One
There are lots of books on this set of shelves that fit in nicely with our lifestyle and are full of tips, hints and methods of doing things.  I notice Nigel has somehow got on here too ... the rest of his books are on the other shelves!!

Some of them have been bought new when on special offer, but lots of them have come from car boot sales and charity shops.  I look for books wherever I go.

There are lots of foody books on these shelves too, my small Alys Fowler collection, a couple of James Wong's, that I have to confess to not reading yet,  and I also have a lot of Gillian McKeith's books ... as I really do believe that  'you are what you eat'.

The little stool (made by my lovely Uncle Harold many, many years ago) holds the overspill of as yet unread books.
Hopefully you should be able to click on the pictures to make them a bit larger, then you will get to see the books in all their glory.  I do love a good nosy through other folks bookshelves .... do you?
Back tomorrow with some more if you want to see them.
