'Books do furnish a room...'





Never mind the coffee table, just use the book.

:-) Absolutely. After all, most of them are just sitting there idle all day! You can only read one at a time.

I often use the complete works of Shakespeare as a writing desk. Tee hee.

So THAT'S the book you need to set a glass of water on!

Thanks for stopping by.

I was going to issue a reprimand about ring marks etc, but really it's so out of character, and then I was rather taken by the colour scheme...

Perfect composition.

Bee said...

I so agree; but that is a particularly beautiful book. Much of my collection could be said to "clutter a room" I think.

And oh how beautifully, how humanely, how sensibly it ended. I was moved not to write a sonnet.

Cheers again.

BB - we watch the Sunday night repeat, being an hour ahead and with work the following day, so I have still to enjoy it. It's been cracking good, I must say. I may order the DVDs for a re-watch, whether I'll get around to reading the book is another matter...

Well, this'll keep him busy over the festive season...

I enjoyed the series too.
However, to more important things - no one has asked what was in the glass??

As an adolescent skilled in pretension, I used a copy of Robert Burton's 'Anatomy of Melancholy' as a bedroom doorstop. Visitors would trip over it, pick it up and say, "Blimey! Have you read this?" I would then smirk enigmatically.
