{The Bookshelf Project}

Everyone knows I like books..or at least, I think they do! After my move I realized I had around 20 boxes of books...heavy! I still have about 4 boxes still packed as I do not have the built in shelves I had when we owned our house on Leoti. {gasp}  I know!  I envision one day living in a place where I can just have them out of the bondage of a box!...even if it's cinder-blocks with a nice slab of wood!!!!  One day!  ...and to my horror I'm missing a box of books...they are in storage somewhere in San Diego! Somebody was astonished I knew the titles of the exact books...but don't you know your children's names? Oh, yes...I don't have them...but will reunite one day...and it will be a great day.
Sonia, over at Leaves of Grass prompted me....  I think I've done it before, but I want to renew.
  The Bookshelf Project   quoted from her website: "The Library project celebrates books and our intimate relationship with them. Bookshelves are often much more than a storage space. They are shrines that give us constant stability where ever and whatever life throws at us." 
 ....and AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH!!!!
I also have my books at Shelfari...if you have an account, look me up  I'm '4PJ'  :)
"We have everything we need to be happy, but we aren't happy. Something's missing. I looked around. The only thing I positively knew was gone was the books I'd burned in ten or twelve years. So I thought books might help." - Fahrenheit 451

Hi Paula, I am glad you like the Bookshelf Project! I know you love books and I hope you find your box full of books and could reunit all them one day...
Love seeing your bookshelves. I anlarged the pictures to read better the titles. Books are our great friends for sure.
