Since we moved I haven't had the chance to organize my books properly 
and, because of lack of bookshelves, 1/3 of them are in storage :-(.

I do have my "favourite authors" shelf up in my bedroom though with all 
my Timothy Findley, Ursula K. Le Guin, Guy Gavriel Kay, and DWJ all in 
one place (with a few single books like, Forester's "Maurice", Gaiman 
and Pratchett's "Good Omens", and Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird". 
Basically this shelf is my "you can have these books when you pry them 
from my cold, dead hands" books.

We don’t need lists of rights and wrongs, tables of do’s and don’ts: we 
need books, time, and silence.  "Thou shalt not" is soon forgotten, but 
"Once upon a time" lasts forever.
