You know what that means?!
It's time for THREE OR MORE THURSDAY !!!
Yahoo! Three or More Thursday is hosted by the lovely Tam @ The Gypsy's Corner.
Be sure to pay her a visit and see who else is showing their "Three's & More".
Actually this is the little "cubby" in the hall.
I think originally it was built as the phone center or message area.
There is an old looking phone jack below this first shelf that makes me think that.
I keep my books here. These are maybe 1/100th of what I truly have (seriously). I'm a firm believer that one can not have to many books. My hope, is that as our children leave our nest, I'll be able to turn a spare room into my "library". It'll be where I can put out all my books, read to my hearts content...it will be one of my "happy places". Of course then I return to the reality and realize that we will not be empty nester's for a good long while (which is a good thing) and even if one of the older girls decides to try her wings and fly away, the extra room will be given to one of my boys.
This is the second and third shelves as we move up. I've a pretty eclectic mix of books out right now. I generally change the books out every few months. You can see there's a book that gets a lot of attention. The covering on the spine is torn. Actually that book does have a broken spine.
See that Childcraft series? I purchased those the same day I purchased the dishes I shared in Monday's post...At the county fair when my eldest girl was 10 months old. These were bought with her in mind. Now five of "our" children have enjoyed this set.
This is the very top shelf. These are my Junior Classics. I've two sets. The slightly larger books on the left are the "Junior Classics" which have been in my family since the late fifties. The ones on the right are the "New Junior Classics". These were a gift from my sister in law. She was out thrifting and came upon this set. Knowing how much I loved this series, she grabbed snatched them up and gave them to me. She is one of the sweetest and most sincere people I've ever known. Back to the books, this set is missing book number one, so I've been on the lookout for this missing book for over fifteen years. I've yet to find one to replace it.This is the copyright page from book one of the first set.This is the copyright page from book two of the second set.Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll visit Tam to see who else is sharing and while you're at it, why don't you join in the fun and share your collections too :0).
