Sorting day

l have been recycling glass, getting someone ready ( or is it readier) for university and building an Ikea bookshelf that has finally come. Not to mention the boiler finally being repaired. I am delighted with the bookshelf which has rid the room of piles of random books. For those interested I am posting a couple of photos of the completed and filled shelves-

  1. I couldn’t help but notice the book on CB Fry. Played for both the Corinthians and the Casuals. I think he also won a bet by winning at table tennis using a spoon (or was it book?).

  2. Setting up bookshelves and filling them with books is one of the joys of life in my opinion. :)

  5. Duffy's Stripping of the Altars is a lovely book, amidst an erudite collection!
    The Canada book - is that a dictionary? language book? phrase book? :)

  6. Duffy writes so well. Canada book is a travel guide from a 1994 trip to Canada with Jan and my mother which never took place as my mother pulled out of the plans. Top left hand corner has guides to Rockies, British Columbia, Victoria and Vancouver bought in 2018 for a 2019/20 trip I never took. One day...

    1. It was bought prior to a holiday which we had to cancel as the war in Yugoslavia broke out. Subsequently we took a mini break in Copenhagen to make up for the holiday cancellation and that was when my interest in things Danish began in earnest. Without that mini break I doubt the Duchy of Tradgardland would have begun to have been written about.

    2. That is a nice story - a very little piece of goodness that came out of a real war. Or would you have been The Count of (Upper) Montenegro?
