I know this is really unoriginal by now, but I like the books in our living room like this:

I’ve been rearranging furniture in here (maybe the first time I’ve done that and not been 6+ months pregnant, thereby causing contractions for the duration of pregnancy) and thought this shelf could use a little sprucing up. I feel like we need more purple books now.

    I appreciate the list of books. I didn’t take you for a mystery reader…, but overall, I approve of your reading (I know you were waiting with bated breath for that ;) and I also appreciate that we are on your list of “lovely people” that made me smile.

    While I’m at it, you post about the blogging etiquette…the whole needing to include a picture, that’s pretty ridiculous, as is evidenced in my own blog of many long posts sans pictures…and apparently this super long comment…hmmm, what else can I say to make it longer :)

    Are the books by Brandon Mull any Good? I’m always on the lookout for decent fantasy. (I assume something called “Fablehaven” is fantasy).

    On another note, I think the H.G. Wells book is the best visually.

    Kendy – the Romgi and I both loved the Fablehaven series. It’s a little like A Wrinkle in Time maybe? The Candy Shop War was also good (the Romgi called it Charlie and the Chocolate Factory + The Witches)), but I haven’t read Beyonders yet.
