Dear Diary, My Passion Is Expressed On My Bookshelves

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Destiny Real Estate Cambridge, MA

I've always loved to scan people's bookshelves to learn more about them.  Our interests and enthusiams are revealed in the books on our shelves.   My overloaded shelves are no exception.  My passions are varied, my list of enthusiasms long, I've got hobbies and interests galore.  The phases of my life can be traced in my book collection.

There's no doubt, though, if you scan through the books that I'm a bit obsessed.  

I love the idea of HOME.Books About Home I love architecture. Books About Architecture   

I love houses in their infinite variety.  Books on House Styles From Cottages   Books about cottages  

To Colonials.   Books About Colonials     Bungalows    Books About BungalowsTo Victorians.    Books About Victorians

I love Old Houses  Old house book   Newer Houses   Books on Modern House Styles

I love every room in my house.  Books about Houses  

I love New England where I live. Books About New England

 

I love my family.   Books About Family  And my cat - who's family too.  Books About Cats

I love Books of all kinds.  Books About Books

 

For Questions.  Book of Questions   For Answers.  Book of Answers

For Fun and Games.  Books About Fun and Games 

And the truth is, as Thomas Jefferson said, I cannot live without books

Hi Elizabeth, I just broke down and bought the Kindle2 a few weeks ago and cannot tell you how much I love it.  I was hesitant at first because I so love books, looking at covers in the book store, organizing my bookcase, etc.  With the Kindle2 though I am trying new books, reading more and able to travel lighter.  Now if I can just stop reading and start blogging more!

Liz - Thanks for sharing your library with us.  As a fellow booklover I always look in peoples's bookshelves to get a better sense of who they are.  Very creative idea for a post.

Hi Amy ~ Thanks for sharing that.  Maybe there's a place for both - that's the impression I'm getting. I just know the profit margins in publishing are so thin - I initially saw it as a threat to books in print.  Maybe it can boost publishers' profits.  I hope so! Really interesting to hear from your perspective as a lover of books that you enjoy the Kindle so much.

Hi Pam ~ Thanks!  I've been scoping out people's books since I babysat as a kid.  It's irresistible.
