Re: Bookshelf Club

Thanks for the kind words. I'm a book addict married to a book addict and we both have book-heavy professions.

Really enjoying this thread and glad you started it. Can confirm that we share at least one title with at least ten other posters ITT, and no they weren't all poker books.

Re: Bookshelf Club

At least one of yours should be super easy, as I photographed the E-F section of my paperback shelves.

I did spot The Magic Labyrinth on your shelf. I know it's on mine somewhere.

Re: Bookshelf Club

But do you have Venus on the Half-Shell? And if so, did you file it under the same author?

I read it many years ago, but I never owned a copy. Used to read tons of science fiction when I was a kid, and one friend and I traded books constantly.

Re: Bookshelf Club

When I was a kid there was a big controversy as to who the real author of that book was. I think Farmer copped to it a while back, though.

Well, you made me go look. I did see Dave Duncan and David Eddings. Anything else I missed?

Yes. When I first read it, we thought it was Vonnegut.

I didn't look in that much detail. Once I found one book in common in a given picture, I moved to the next one. On yours, it was the Eddings, specifically Belgarath.

Looking again, I see Elizabeth Moon, Frankowski, Resnick, Heinlein, Turtledove, Watt-Evans, Chalker, Herbert, and Asimov books that we both have, at least.

My book shelf has exactly 5 books on it. The "A Song of Ice and Fire" box set, still wrapped in plastic. You guys have inspired me to read more.

Re: Bookshelf Club

Got to move in to the master suite last weekend, so I was able to finish the library set up. Here's the finished product.

Re: Bookshelf Club

Here's my bunch, I have a few more but I lack space in my 1 room.

Might be a little hard to decipher as some are in Danish.

Disclaimer: I haven't read them all (yet)

That's a lot more Dostoevsky than I would want to power through. GL!

Thank you, I love his writing, I have read the "big 3", have a few of his other books as well. Am currently reading Notes from the Underground, it's very different from the novels. Iirc that one was a big inspiration for Nietzsche (some of whose works I'm not sure is too badly rendered to be able to see in this picture :-p) and how he came to view the human condition, the writing style is very similar to how Nietzsche writes.
