A Winter's Respite Read-A-Thon: Mega-Mini Challenge

For this challenge I have to show a library that I covet. Easy done. Although, ultimately it would have a secret entry-way, and a large blackwood desk with a comfy, worn in leather chair. Ah, bliss.

As for the library I currently have, I cannot show you a proper picture as it is all packed away whilst my house is on the market. Here it is cleaned up, with most of my books hidden away in boxes:

Note the warped bookshelf. This is not an illusion, it is actually a bit bent out of shape after I rammed so many books in there. My lounge room also had another four bookcases in it, but for now I only have one small one (you can see it through the window):

Also, my bedroom has 2 bookboxes in it next to my bed. This is were I keep most of my writing materials:

Hopefully my house sells soon so I can have all my books back :)


  1. I thought I had stopped by sooner, but I guess I didn't. =O( Anyway, great covet library space. Ah, to dream, right? Your home set up is very nice. I like your desk area!

    Guess what? I drew your name as one of the winners of this challenge! For details on your prize, check out the wrap-up post here: http://thetruebookaddict.blogspot.com/2012/01/winters-respite-post-your-wrap-up-and.html


  2. Oooh, how exciting, I rarely win anything! Your house looks so exciting, I would love to browse all those books. My mum bought me the big desk chair because I spend so much time reading. It's big enough to curl up in with a blanket and a book :)

  3. Kudos on your office space Ash. Looks very spacious. I'm really rather envious...

  4. Thanks, Dean. I guess it's one of the benefits of owning your own home :) I actually just sold the house though, so I'll be back to a little cubby hole like most other writers.
