I MUST have those bookshelves. Does anyone know where I can buy them?

Me too me too! (Waving hand wildly in air.) That is seriously beautiful, and so efficient.

That bookshelf is amazing. I wonder if it is available for purchase or just something someone made? Not that I have any space for it or enough books, ATTM.

Me too and like 20 times over. However, that bookshelf would look pretty amazing in my office ;) I'm going to have to look into that.

I'm severely book-gasming over this bookshelf. WANT.

Ooo, ooo, I know something, I know something! Arredamenti Saporiti, an Italian minimalist, designed that bookshelf. Unfortunately, he lives with other Italians in Italy, which is damned inconsiderate of him. :drama:

Some of his other stuff is nifty too: http://www.saporiti.net/

Just finished Gamble by Felix Francis, who is hoping, I guess, to carry on his father's (the late Dick Francis) legacy. It was ok. Showed some promise, but not really up to the quality of even the lesser books of his father.

I just finished the entire Steele Street series by Tara Janzen and if you are extremely good at suspending disbelief and like way over the top action/romance, these are huge fun.

I'm still in denial that Dick Francis is dead. :( He was my "first love" in murder mysteries. I had previously read some Agatha Christie, but it wasn't until I picked up my first Dick Francis that I really embraced the genre.

Sadly I'm not at all surprised that Felix's work is not up to standard. The last 4 Dick Francis books written "with Felix Francis" were far below par ... and I strongly suspected dad had very little to do with the writing on those ones. *sigh* At least I have all of DF's books and can revisit them. I doubt I'll bother reading any Felix.

Yeah, apparently all letters are available and they're hella expensive. Rude.

Actually, that's just a series of cubes. Any half-way decent carpenter could make it. And since the cubes are stacked, it would be easy to move around.

Where do you freaks put all of these books!? :lol:

I think if you really want it you should just have a good carpenter make it for you. It can't be hard.

In this thread, the freaks are the one that CAN'T fill multiple shelves like that. I have an entire garage-full of books, their are five bookcases of books downstairs, all mine, and two bookcases in my room. Plus my stash of rainy day books filled with heaving bosoms and vampires under my bed. I'm not sure, but I think maybe that's why my mom bought me a Kindle for Christmas even though I was deadset against one. /rabid convert

Remember, we have books. Heavy ones that can be used as projectile missiles.

You should start making up a batch and selling them to FSU members! :)

I finished The Handmaid's Tale and really enjoyed it, although it was creepy! I finished with it two nights ago and haven't really been able to stop thinking about it since. I felt like every time I picked it up I was entering that horrible world again.

I looked up the trailer for the film and was shocked to see that the hanging scene was filmed in front of our famed chapel where I went to college! Eek, that's doubly creepy.
