Since I know that we all love a bit of book-porn now and again, I figured that I would go ahead and post my bookshelves here for your enjoyment. So, without further ado...
This is one and a half of two and a half bookshelves in my bedroom. The tall bookcase contains my Stephen King collection (top two shelves) and miscellaneous other books (bottom two shelves). The very bottom shelf is empty, because the cats enjoy laying in there. I would too, if I was small enough. :)

Here are some close-ups of these shelves.

The first picture is of my King Collection (the second shelf of which is shelved by published date) and three library books. I haven't read "Little Brother" yet, but the other two were both excellent. Highly recommended. :)

This next picture shows random miscellaneous books. As you can see, I don't have any particular shelving system, except that I keep my series books together. This shelf DOES contain a good bit of historical fiction though. And an apocalyptic fiction collection and a zombie collection. The second shelf contains my Percy Jackson series (except #5 which I've sent to Allison), the Abhorsen series, except #1 which is loaned out, and random other fantasy.

Next we have the 2nd bookcase in my bedroom, which is within arms reach of my desk. I have my "currently reading" library book "Sepulchre" there.

And again, some close-ups. First, a bunch of classics...

Next, contemporary fiction, and one of my sets of "Lord of the Rings", and some books that I have no room to shelve yet. =\ My Grisham collection is here, along with the beginnings of my Koontz and Crichton collections. Right up top is one of my favorite books ever, "I Know This Much Is True" by Wally Lamb... Read it. Love it.

Next we have other miscellaneous books...

Next we have the bookcase in the living room. This one weighs a gajillion pounds, and is from Ikea. Pretty, yes? The cats love it. :) See?

Some more shots of this one... First, my Harry Potter collection. I have one US set, and one UK set. :D Also, up top, you can see my Hitchhiker's Guide collection, my Complete Shakespeare, and Complete Poe sets. The statue on the left is a cat gargoyle with yellow light up eyes (you put a candle behind it's head), and the sphere on the right is a little model of Hogwarts with a ring of pewter dementors that sits on the globe. The car, which is hard to see, is a contribution of my boyfriend's - it's a collectors edition Saber graffitied model car. (He's got another in the box.)

Next... More miscellaneous books: My omnibus edition of "Lord of the Rings", my Jane Austen collection, my Colleen McCullough collection, most of which consists of the "Rome" series. Kristin Cashore's "Graceling" and "Fire". The bottom shelves contain more fantasy, Paolini's books, Eoin Colfer's "Artemis Fowl" series and my "Narnia" omnibus. Then we have "The Book Thief", some more classics, "Anne of Green Gables", "The Little Princess", "The Count of Monte Cristo", "The Secret Garden", "1984", "I Am Legend", a second copy of "Little Women" and Brandon Sanderson's "Mistborn" series.

Finally, we have my boyfriend's contribution to the "public" shelf... A lot of game guides, art magazines and a non-fiction book along with a vegetarian cookbook. He's got more books (graffiti & additional art books mainly) in his computer/art room.

And last but not least, a nosy Girl cat.


Thanks for the tour!
