Show and Tell

About a month ago Nick Norelli was trying to get everyone to post pictures of the books they’ve been reading.  My problem is that I have my books everywhere, so no place in particular is very indicative of my current reading list.  But last night I organized my office (i.e. a desk and some bookshelves in the corner of our unfinished basement).  The stack at the front of my desk is as telling as anything.  Plus it’s always fun to look at books.

    We have a few books in common but I’m jealous of the 2 vol. Old Testament Pseudepigrapha I see on the shelf.

    I thought that might get a comment. I didn’t think it would turn out in the picture, but it did. I have the pleasure of looking out over my books to see… more books. Ahhhhh. If I ever need to be refreshed, I just go sit in my office for a few minutes and look at book titles and I start to feel better.

    Its a good picture.

    I took the time to set out specifically the books I was reading.

    Yeah, I only took the pic on a whim. Many of them actually are what I’m reading though.
