I wanted to show y’all our collection of books and their various locations throughout our home. I say "our" as in Us, y'all no myself and my Beloved, he likes books too. Okay so I didn’t take photos of the ones out in the garage in boxes…palllease there are spiders in those boxes! Be sure to read to the end where the Give ah way info is. No don’t skip my wondermous righting skills as you may miss an opera tune ah tea to snort or giggle or make sum such noise.

Okay so I’ll start in my studio…these are some different areas that have books stacked up. Not pictured is the huge bird book, it’s like 1 and half foot wide by about 3 foot long. Seriously beautiful—clearance purchase at six ducks.





And in our life’ing room. However Not pictured here is the big giant Body Atlas that sat under a chair. Ewe lala

I did not take a photo in baby girl’s room, as there was an incident with the turtle so it’s quite a mess. All writey them on to my boo d wire. Some of y’all dear internets have seen it before.

Your poem is indeed a work of art, Paige. :-)

We have books everywhere you look here too. However, we don't have any chickens or state capital photos in our bathing room. Obviously, we are missing out.

Also, I'd like to hear more about this "turtle incident." It sounds intriguing and is bound to be an interesting story! :D

Aha! Now I have some proof to show the hubby that I'm not the only one in the world to have books piled high in every room of the house. He's not a reader so he doesn't understand, which I don't understand - how could it be that not everyone in the world has books piled sky high?! Senseless!

Lovely poem too. ;)

Hi, Paige. Are you doing the PAD Challenge this year? Last year I didn't post on the blog, but I did participate.

I decided to go back and see who is around this year. I will post at least some of my poems there this year, maybe all.

I would love to see you there as well. I have always enjoyed your poems. If I don't see you posting there, I will try to check in here to see what you have up.

Blessings

P.S.
I have WAY too many books. Do you want some of mine?

LauraX said...

our house is stacked with books on shelves and side tables and some even line in piles along the wall of my bedroom (oh and I have a drawer under my bed that is full of books too)...yes we love them here too!

Jamie Lynn said...

hey those looks exactly like mine lol

I am of the mind that books are a very common thread that runs between almost all of us bloggers! Love, love, love books! Although I really didn't need yet another book, about two weeks ago, a friend of mine posted on Facebook about a new book -just out -containing essays about strong women in the lives of the writers and that this friend also had an essay in the book. Having known her since she was a baby, as well as her siblings and her parents quite well, that was inspiration enough for me to send the money -via the internet -and purchase said book -title is "About Her" -and to recommend said book to everyone I encountered now since reading it too! Ah yes, I do love me some books and could I please add just one more to the stack too? Now that's something I don't really have to worry about -the addition of more books -as it seems this is a genetic thing too because my daughter keeps adding to the pile as well!

I kinda have no idea what your giveaway is about but I loves me some giveaways so what the heck.

Oh, and I have Gladys the Goose in my office/library. I sure hope you are not casting aspersions on birds in the house.

And here is my poem (not that you asked for a poem, but you kinda made a big deal out of yours so you know, I thought I'd get in on that action):

I have lots and lots of books in my house,too.
Plus a goose and Precious the Laptop. Really, I do.

Snaggle Tooth said...

I noticed Strange Piece of Paradise book by the Wierd Texas text. Does that have something to do with the name of your blog?
Your books look orderly.

Dapoppins said...

I forgot to comment on that huge book up there. I was wondering, where do you keep it? I mean, it's like an extra wall!

Tim said...

It looks like you must love books. I do too when I have time to read.

Jannie Funster said...
