Lolly took this neat picture of what our book collection looks like during remodeling. I can’t quite tell where in the alphabet this is.

    >Because most of our business functions have been moved to Ohio we’re downsizing our space. I lose my window but gain a much better spot for the heat and AC ducts!

    >Those two blue doorstop books. Are they Leven Thumps? They are just familiar enough to nag at me, wanting to be recognized, like the person I pass in the grocery store who I know looks familiar.


  5. >I’m pretty sure this photo shows shelves somewhere between E and G. Our collection is alphabetical by author — fiction and nonfiction mixed together. Maybe those are Cornelia Funke books?

  6. >Definitely spot Funke’s Dragon Rider, so I concur with Lolly’s guess that it is between E and G. Easier to tell after clicking on the thumb nail.
