Favorite Author Shelves

A few of our favorite authors have earned their own shelves in our built-in buffet cabinet, based both on number of books and attractiveness. When I love a book, like Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, or Hamlet, I buy a lot of copies–for the illustrations, the footnotes, a cool cover, the introduction, portability, durability, whatever.

    Very cool. I dream of having sufficient shelf space one day in order to display my books rather than to merely store them.

    One of my hopes was to create extra space on the bookshelves upstairs. Funny–the brief vacuum left by creating these author shelves closed up immediately! I must not be reading enough, or fast enough. Heh.
