omphaloskepsis drove her truck to the ikea, filled it with my chosen bookshelves, and AS I TYPE THIS they are being constructed by bizarrojack and VERY SOON I will place the first book on an actual shelf in this house.

I cannot describe how ecstatic this makes me.

I wish I had a card catalog thing!

THANK YOU Jack and Christie!!!

It is an auspicious day for acquiring furniture. My roommate's long-awaited couch arrived this afternoon.

Enjoy your new bookshelves in good health and may they bring you many blissful literary moments. =)

Re: and here you go
It's lovely, isn't it? Did I ever tell you that the hallway of the basement level of the library, down which I have to walk to get to my dissertation director's office, used to be filled with old discarded card catalogs? Just catalog after catalog lined up against the wall, awaiting their post-electronic fate. I wonder what ever happened to them? They were a lighter-colored wood, not nearly so nice as the one in the picture.

Re: and here you go
they probably ended up at the terrapin trader. i think i may have even seen one there in the past. the truth of the matter is, however, that i doubt i have the patience or the attention span to manually catalog all my books. i'm not dedicated enough!!!

cheetahmaster could help. Between your love of card catalogs, and cheetahmaster's love of filing things? You guys could alphabetize THE WORLD and file it away into tiny drawers. You'd be unstoppable.

I may have to work an exchange, because I reckon he has a housefull of stuff that needs categorizing sorting and filing. :)

Now that himself is an accomplished bookshelf builder when can I expect a complete revamp of my stamp room. Need about 4 6 footers and several file drawers. Someday it will all be yours!!!!!!!
