Bookshelf For A Song

I just wanted to share with you my happiness over finding a new bookshelf.  I did not want to invest so much in it, like the way I did with the custom-made desk and hutch.  I bought this at S&R for a song, practically.  While I see the hardwood desk staying with me forever, this new bookshelf will be with us only temporarily as C and I seem to suffer from bibliophilia. :)  Hence, I predict a need for a new one to house the growing collection in the near future. 

After 10 years of marriage, this is the first time that we will be consolidating our library.  There are still a lot of books in our individual bookshelves, but I am tired from moving books already so they will have to stay where they are till I find the time and energy to move them.

Here are some of C's selections:

Some of my favorite books:

Kulinarya ( A Guidebook to Philippine Cuisine) is my preferred reading material at the moment.  Food styling is done by one of my favorite creative persons, Claude Tayag.  He is not only a fellow Cabalen, but a talented food/travel columnist, as well.

J’s favorite book in my library:

 "If you truly love a book, you should sleep with it, write in it, read aloud from it, and fill its pages with muffin crumbs."

I LOVE books, and I love your collection!!! If I lived there, I would be borrowing Kulinarya and Rachel Zoe's book right this minute! Me too, meee toooo...i love books on travel, design, fashion, and food!!! But right now, I am reading an Anatomy and Physiology textbook :) You're inspiring me right now! I think I want to do the same book post. I'll link back to you and maybe Mom-Friday would like to join as well :)

Tina, where did you get the "A companion manual in helping our children do well in school"? Id like to get a copy. thanks a lot!

Thes, the book is a local publication, written by Maribel Dionisio and Queena Lee-Chua. I bought mine during a parenting seminar I attended given by Maribel Dionisio. Maybe you can try National Bookstore, or better yet inquire from the publisher, Anvil.

Hope you get your own copy soon!
