Fishhead by Irving S. Cobb
Sin un ruido by Damon Knight
La cámara oscura by Basil Copper
La Fiesta de Cumpleaños by John Burke
La Jaula by Ray Russell
¡Tan real! by Robert Specht
La Habitación de los niños by William Wood
[/list]

yeah I mean what is more cool that having a huge library....
The problem with that is the financial aspect of the book collection... so I ask a lot of books for my birthday and christmas...

And I also have half of my harry potter collection in hardcover and soft one set to keep in good shape...as I will do with my twilight books...

OOh can you see yourself sitting in your own library with a lot of really good books.... :oops: (ooh man I sound like hermiony)

I hope you are enjoying the weekend as well...

Hahahaha Marielle you really sound like Hermione!!! But i understand the feeeling, sounds like paradise to me, surrounded by a huge collection of books!!!

I'm beggining with my HP collection, i have read all of them of course, but as you, financial are not always good, so, many of my friends use to give me for my birthday my fav books, in that way i get The Hobbit, The Lord of the ring and Harry Potter 7, all of them deluxe edition, make my heart jump in and out.

This year i hope to buy the hardcover edition of Twilight Saga, already have the paperback, and am looking forward to get Jane Evanovich series too, friends has told me those books are really good, make you laugh aloud.

Am enjoying my weekend, thanks.

Yadira.

Having your own library is wonderful until you have to move. Then all those books aren't nearly so fun anymore!

I'm an avid book reader. My favourite genres are fantasy, children's fiction and historical novels...and the classics of course!
My new bookshelf - which takes a whole wall in the biggest room in my flat - is already full and I have boxes and boxes of books in the garage.
I'm thinking about getting an e-reader and buy only the must-have books from now on. Unfortunately, there are no e-readers available in Italy because all the e-books are in English. It's hard to choose and buy electronics on the net for me so maybe I'll buy one as soon as I travel abroad.

Reading is a special pleasure...it makes you enter a new world. I'd read every single moment, were it possible :D Luckily enough I teach languages and literature so books are my "job" as well.

About used books I agree with you, guys...in second hands stores you can find some little treasures. For example, once I bought from a second-hand UK store on Amazon a book by Edna O'Brien, one of my favourite authoress. I was so happy to find that the first page was signed by O'Brien herself...I couldn't believe it, just 2 euros for a signed book!!!! Plus, in the second-hand market you can find books that are nt published any more or very rare and old editions. It's pure book-addict heaven!

@Openhome I agree with you...moving with hundreds of books is definitely a hell-like experience. I relocated twice in a couple of years and I was going mad.

I have tried that actually this summer... I bought a house and had to move all my books and those of my boyfriend.
It wasn't that bad... :lol: I just had to make sure I had enough boxes...
:P

A room with just books would be terrific. Put a big, comfy chair and a fireplace in there and I would be in heaven. I would also love an art studio and sewing/quilting room.

Your not alone on that one! I am currently looking for a new appartement, and one of the main criteria is a spear room to make a "library" out of :D

Hello my name is Hanne and i am a bookaholic :lol:
i have always loved books in generall ever since my dad read to me at bedtime. And i have "collected" books all through my life without really realizing that this was a hobby. :D about 2 years ago i had an "epiphany" when i was reorganizing my books and i realized that this in fact was my hobby :lol:
Since then i have gotten even wors then before, my friends call me a book-snob because i refuse to buy paperbacks and daydream about my favoritt books in leatherbound editions :lol:

her is a pic of my shelf as of today: http://twitpic.com/mxvex (all the books on the left that look out of place are books i have yet to read, they are placed like that to aggravate me every time i look over. that way i get to reading them faster :lol: )
