Book shelves series #27, twenty-seventh Sunday of 2012
There are 27 Sundays in 2012, so today’s post is the half way mark for this series, I guess.
This is an obscure little shelf on the side of a piece of furniture that holds the TV in our den. These are travel books, phrase books, etc., which I’m not sure if people still buy—I mean, I don’t buy them anymore, at least not if I’m going to go somewhere. I use the internet, or iPhone apps. Maybe I need to go to some place without 3G or wireless coverage.
There are some other relics here, too, on the shelf above this one—CDs and DVDs.

They are fun to read, especially several years later. I remember getting an old set of encyclopedias once that was full of wonderfully inaccurate theories about life, the universe and everything…
They are very nice to have when reading a book set in a particular city or country or area. Then you can read and look up where the characters are. Like a large map of London, or the Metro in Paris. You know. To follow along.
