Despite the time it takes to scan book covers, and the stress it is probably putting on my elderly Canon scanner, I am still enjoying displaying my library. I trust all who visit Eye Candy for Bibliophiles find it a salutary experience as well.
As you see, the large bookcase lives up to its designation. It was custom built twenty or so years ago when we first moved into this dwelling. Measuring 9 ft by 9ft, the shelves are made of pine, now mellowed over the years to a deep honey colour. Despite being custom built it can be taken apart, as the three vertical sections are separable, and all the shelves can be adjusted and removed.
The contents represent the bulk of my fiction collection which covers popular, literary and classical fiction of all sorts, acquired over forty something years. The shelving of the books actually has a system, in that I generally shelve books under imprint, e.g. most of the penguins are shelved together, though over the years it has all gotten a bit out of hand as space became an issue.
However, you will be surprised by what I have in this bookcase – quite a few rare old editions and then some.
