Proceeding upstairs, you'll find our personal bookcases. I have a decent sized bookcase that's jammed full of paperbacks, hardbacks, brand-new books, vintage books, and just plain old books. I'm not real picky. I have Agatha Christie mysteries, lots of classics that I intend to read some day, a couple of books from when I was little and most of my favorite books (I tend to collect my favorites) The bookcase in Ben and Jason's room is full of everyone's favorite childhood books. The Happy Hollisters, The Boxcar Children, the Burgess books, B is for Betsy. The list could go on and on. As for Sam . . he's a very particular and selective book collector. Most of his books are in perfect condition and belong in a set. His most outstanding collections include Redwall, Artemis Fowl, The Chronicles of Narnia, Shel Silverstein poems, and the Peter and the Starcatchers series.
Mom's bookcase doesn't contain a lot of fiction, so the books mostly reflect her interests. Lots of books on gardening, parenting/homeschooling, various Bible topics . . . I think she even has books about books! As for Dad, I'm not sure what he has except for a huge stack of P.G. Wodehouse books and a few Louis L'Amour books. =)
So what about you? What do your family's bookcases look like?
