So, here goes...
|Main Bookshelf - Top Shelves|
The very top shelf has a bunch of old cigar boxes that have old keepsakes in them (medals/ribbons from awards, etc.), along with a totem pole from Alaska that my mom gave me, Flash and Joker action figures (gifts from my friend Jeff), an articulated drawing model, a "Darth Tater" potato head (gift from my friend Malinda), and a bunch of photo albums.
The next shelf down has general reading books - mostly fiction, but some business books, and also a bunch of snowglobes that friends have given me from trips, and some antique postcards.
The next shelf on the left holds all of my DC Graphic Novels and Trade Paperbacks. The upper half-shelf on the right has drawing and graphic design books on the left and comic "coffee table" books on the left, both on their sides. The lower half-shelf on the right has an antique typewriter that my wife bought for me as a decoration, and a bunch of books on writing (character name books, publishing your book, writing the novel, etc.), plus A Canticle for Liebowitz, an anthology of H.P. Lovecraft, and the first two books in the Skystone series.
The next shelf on the left has dictionaries, thesauruses, miscellaneous miniature books in basket, and some other graphic novels that didn't fit on any of the other shelves.
|The Middle Part of the Shelf|
On the right is, of course, a small TV, and then a stack of Star Wars and Star Trek books.
|The bottom of the shelf|
And here's the bottom of the shelf, along with the space underneath on the floor. The upper shelf is my hardback RPG books, starting with 1st Edition AD&D on the left, then 2E, 3.5 (I packed my 3E in the garage because they seemed redundant), then a bunch of WOTC campaign settings for 3E/3.5, then Pathfinder, then 3rd Party 3E/3.5 stuff, then OSRIC, Gygax's Living Fantasy, a 1st edition Vampire: The Masquerade, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Buffy the Vampire Slayer RPG (my wife's game, never played), and at the very far right, an old edition of a Magic: The Gathering encyclopedia.
On the floor in the magazine holders, from left to right are my old B/X and 1E modules, the 2E "Complete Books Of...", some other 2E era stuff along with GURPS Russia and Ars Magic: Nobilis (research for when I wrote The Quintessential Aristocrat). The next four magazine holders are all 3E/3.5 era stuff. The white boxes hold a smattering of Dragon and Dungeon magazines (the majority of my collection is packed up in the garage. Also to the far left on the floor, you'll see a stack of books on their side, which is the old Time Life The Enchanted World series.
Behind my desk, I have this weird little "nook" built into the wall. We have no idea why it's there - it's about 2 1/2 ' wide and about the same deep, and it goes floor to ceiling as well. It's very odd. We put shelves into it and turned it into our game nook:
|The Game Nook Behind My Desk|
Below that is most party and strategic board games. There are actually three more shelves below that which didn't fit in the picture. One shelf holds more board/strategy games (Settlers of Catan, Citadels, Ticket to Ride, Shadows Over Camelot, Wits and Wagers, etc.), the shelf below that holds 8 boxes full of paperback books, and the shelf below that is actually a huge wire-mesh drawer that's full of small games like card games and stuff like that.
So, there's my contribution to the meme. Cheers!
