It’s a triple celebration today.
It’s my 5th blogiversary and the blog has now reached the 250,000 hit milestone. Thank you, one and all. You are all invited to the official opening of Lizzy’s Library.
Finally, in my early-50’s, a childhood dream has come true. I always wanted floor-to-ceiling shelves in a room dedicated to my literary passions! This just proves that everything comes to she who waits …..
Please avert your eyes if you’re not in the mood for a tour presented in the over the top spirit of an M&S food advert. For this is not a library, this is Lizzy’s Library …
Signing off for now. If you need me, you know where to find me. 😉
EDIT: Just thinking, you couldn’t do this with a Kindle, could you?
Wonderful room, what a great selection of books. My wish is a wall full of books in the living room. Whether I’ll ever get that, I don’t know.
Thanks for sharing!
That looks beautiful 🙂
Mind you, it still looks as if you could do with a few more…
Just finished the Eugen Ruge book by the way – excellent! Review out in a week or so. Have you finished it yet?
There’s plenty of room on these shelves for more. Lots of space behind what will be the front rows. Though admittedly not enough for the rest of my collection which is now strewn all over the bedroom floor. Today’s job is to continue the cull ..
As for reading the Ruge, haven’t read a word beyond the 40 pages I read in December. I’ve been a bit preoccupied …..
Yes Lizzy, thanks for sharing pictures of your beautiful bookcases. I love them! Like the idea of the bookcases against two walls, from floor to ceiling too (??) I would like to have my own library to look somewhat like that one day. 🙂
Happy blogiversary, congrats on the 250,000 mark, and what a beautiful library! Cheers!
Congratulations. Well done. I spotted some very interesting books.
No need to avert eyes!
Nothing is lovelier than books.
Wow! That is impressive. My bookshelves are full, too….but my passion is children’s lit! I hope you never have to move. I just moved and those books are heavy!

Happy Blog birthday to yooooou! Lovely shelves and as regards the Kindle…well it’s like having a Bookroom in your bag:-)
Oh I love this, I am so nosey with peoples bookshelves, and belated Blog Birthday wishes too.
Looking good Lizzy! Looking good! 🙂
Congratulations. What a lovely library. The only “things” in my home that are not replaceable besides pictures are my books. It is such a joy to be surrounded by them. Also I notice my book club friends with Kindles are not following along with us as we discuss. Could change the interaction of the group.
Beautiful! And many congratulations!
Oh wow. How very, very swoonworthy… good job there’s a couch to catch anyone who does. 🙂
