Bookstore owners are getting upset

Reality is their customers are using the stores more like a library

Objecting to paying full price for their wares

When they know they can pick up a free copy from the web

Simply by clicking a button on their devices

Even now – they’re not picking off the shelf – they’re noting down titles

I’m a big fan of the late Terry Pratchett’s work and keep his novels on a shelf
in my bedroom – office.

They’re kept in two rows, one behind the other – the later editions hiding behind the earlier books, which I enjoy reading.

Later editions being in hardback – are also on another shelf and these are kept, like the paperbacks in chronological order, the last edition being the shepherds crown, which was completed just before  terry’s death

The books themselves have series all to do with individual characters, there’s the Wizards, Death, the Witches, the Dwarves, The thieves guild, the Watch, the Vampires and of course, theres the character that kicks it all off – Rincewind.

Each set of books has its own groupings and could be kept in their own sets – I choose to set them out chronologically.

Shelf

I have a nest of shelves in my room. I’m quite proud of them really. You could say they were my First Do-it-Yourself project after leaving school.

What’s on them ? Books, Mainly.  My collection of Terry Pratchett Novels shares space with Authors ranging from the Comedian David Mitchell to William Horwoods Tale of the willows.  A Camera occasionally spends time there, when its not being used for a project

A few Discworld Hardbacks reside in the top left corner, they might not be worth anything, but they sit proud on the shelf, signed by the author himself.

There’s a broken up pyramid puzzle in front of some scientific paperbacks – one day – I might just put it back together, but till then it too occupies a space by the books.  A CD System sits nearby alongside a selection of comedy recordings.  Their Music Equivalents sit on an adjacent shelf

I’ve got a small amount of toy cars commemorating special events held in the UK – mostly from Manchester’s commonwealth games and the London Olympics and these line the top of the shelf.

My holiday trinkets have a shelf all of their own.  Snowglobes, Turtles and the odd pic – right now there’s one of Mum and dad up there.

And most recent my own copies of publications I’ve contributed to.
