The reader

    Newer Older

    My wife and I are fond of reading (but I have no time any more since I have started with ODC; hmm, perhaps I need a workshop in time management). On our book shelves in the living room, the books are stashed even in double rows. But there is still room for this wooden reader.

    ODC - Theme (08-03-2012): Brown

      What a great bookend. I see you found some brown spines among the stacks as well. Time management, when you figure it out, could you pass along some advice?

      Wow, beautiful brown! I love the stillness of the statuette.
      Here in our house reading is also a good second hobby.
      (thank you for the compliments on my fork, I'm verry happy with my macro-lens, it's sad you can't have one :-(

      Gorgeous little ornament Luc! I also used to LOVE reading, but I just don't have time with three little kids 8( and at the end of the day I'm just to knackered to pick a book up

      What a nice statuette for the bookcase. We are addicted to books in paper and electronic form.

      Wonderful shot for the theme, my household loves books too both physical and electronic and our bookshelves are the same (double rows etc!) Love the wooden ornament, so apt for a bookshelf :-)

      Lovely shot, lovely object, know what you mean about finding time to read. Used to be at bedtime for me, now most nights I find myself sitting in bed with the laptop (as now) trying to catch up with you all lol!

      Love the "reader." Yes, books, books, books, all over the place and not as much time to read as I would like. I do enjoy the Kindle app that I have on my iPhone as that lets me read any time there is a spare moment. I have about 30 classics that I plan on reading again when ever I have to wait in line, stand in an elevator, sit in the bathroom, etc.

      Nice PoV & dof and an interesting statue!
      What's the stack of thick books on the right? Het Bureau?

    16. glukorizon 26 months ago | reply

      The stack on the right is part of the fantasy series by Raymond E. Feist, which fills about half of our bookcase. The pile in the back is another fantasy series by Dave Eddings, except the top one. All great books, though it is more my wife and sun that have read them all.
      To all: Thank you for your comments; I am glad to find so many book readers among you, and that I am not the only one struggling with time.
