New bookcases mean book porn, Part I: Serbian, French, Persian, Arabic, Romanian, and Latin Book Porn


Earlier this week, two solid wood bookcases that I ordered from one of my cousins, a carpentry/shop teacher at a local high school, arrived, replacing two dilapidated pre-fab bookcases that were a bit smaller.  I haven't had much time this week to sort through the boxes of books due to my two jobs, but I did finish sorting one of the two 6'x3' bookcases today.

Here is a picture of four of the five shelves.  Here are all of my (in order) Serbian, French, Persian, Arabic, Romanian, and Latin books (just below the picture are my Greek books and some Spanish books that will probably not fit onto the second bookcase, which will be solely for a third or so of my Spanish-language fictions and non-fictions.  Hopefully the titles will be visible if you click on the picture.

One "unfortunate" side effect of this sorting is that despite my dire need for sleep, I find myself wanting to pick up some of these books and just begin (re)reading.  Any titles of interest to you?

I can't zoom the picture to see the titles (I can see the author's name, Pavic, on a couple books) but your books do look delicious. :) Great looking collection.

Yeah, I was uncertain if it'd work well enough, as I was trying to have it large enough to show the size of the bookcase and close enough for the individual titles of at least some of them to appear.

Maybe I'll do a series of close-ups later.
