Life in Focus-Bookshelves

by Kay~Kacey on 11/9/2008

homemade bookcase

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~Anna Quindlen

This is the homemade, built in bookcase that SuperGuy built for me a few years ago. A woman can never have enough bookcases. I’m hoping I passed this fact onto my children.

Which brings me to…I’ve gone over to the darkside…

I confess….

After much resistance….

I broke down an bought Stephanie Meyer’s first book in her Twilight Series. Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1)
I am weak. Too much chatter on the internet about these books. I’m not much into vampires and such, but I heard this series is wonderful. So comment away about the series if you want…but no spoilers!!! Or tell me that you have more bookcases than a library, so I’ll feel better.

If Twilight is as good as they say and you don’t see me out and about on the web….you’ll know what happened.

I felt the same way, but I broke down as well. I liked the books, but I am not in awe of them, like others are. I’ve read the first two, but refuse to pay hardback prices for the third. I’ll order the remaining from the library. :secret:

I’m going to read it only because Mental Mama chose it for her first book club pick. I ususally don’t read that kind of book either…

So far, I’m managed to get through almost half of the book thus far….being an old Dark Shadows lover…I couldn’t resist.

My daughter loved this book, that’s all I know, and she’s not usually a big reader so I was thrilled she was excited about reading something. I want to read it, but haven’t yet.

I love your built-in bookcases and wish I had tons of them! I have seven bookcases that I use (four large ones and three smaller ones) and they’re still not enough.

Oddly, I’m not the least bit tempted to read Twilight. And I love vampire stories.

I love the book shelf and I think I may be following you on the Twilight purchase. I’ve heard so much about it and my kids’ friend from school is staring in the movie, so I guess I better read the book cuz I know everyone in our town will be talking about it too.

It’s a good book. Intriguing. You should join our book club on December 8. Twilight is our first book. :book:

I have bookshelf envy. Seriously.

I’ve finally read TWILIGHT. There was so much hullaballoo I had to know what it was all about. I’m just not seeing it.

i wanted to like the book, I really did, but I was so disgusted I had to force myself to keep reading (so I could speak intelligently about the book). I probably won’t read any of the other books. I’m clearly NOT her reader. And I love both YA and vampire books.

I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. I was so sprised as to how much I enjoyed it!

Debra Rector November 9, 2008 at 3:34 pm

May the force be with you. I absolutely LO’vED the Twilight saga (obsessed, actually) and have already pre-bought tickets for the movie premier on Nov. 21st. There is a group of us Twlight crazed ladies who are going to the movie together. I CANNOT wait!

Off Topic – but I am having trouble finding the posts about the photo contests & wonder if someone can help. However, I have read the first 2 of the Twilight series & love them (I am 60 yo LOL)

How nice to have a handy husband! Mine has, in the words of Dave Barry, a “deficiency of the Mr. Goodwrench gland.” But we are definitely a reading family. In fact, we don’t talk at the dinner table. We read.

Twilight was an easy read. I liked it. I’ve also read the second, and am just starting the third. I think you’ll enjoy it.

xoxo,
Mary

My 14-year old neighbor gave me the Twilight books and said “You HAVE to read these.” The first one was kind of compelling, because the story idea was kinda new – but the writing was soooo horrible. I felt like I needed a shower when I was done. One was enough.

I almost bought the series for my boss until someone told me they were for teens. So nice to see so many comments from non teens :wink: I never can have enough book shelves either. Organizing them is definitely on my todo list!
