I finished it today. As I said, I have a few quibbles about how the book was put together, but overall I'm very pleased that it exists.

It'll be a little while before I write my review because my books are all still in storage, and I'll need to consult Unfinished Tales and some the volumes of HoMe to complete it.

Just out of curiosity, why are your books in storage? Still from the renovation? Which I could completely understand—we have boxes not gone through from our renovation in 2000. No, that is not a typo. :bang: :bang: :bang:

V,

I'm sympathetic too. My first project 5 years ago was to build a 30 foot long bookcase. Its done and very nice, but I still have a few hundred under my desk and another few hundred in storage space. I might get time in the spring to build the reest, but many more projects to finish before that can happen.

Prim,

It has been a long time. Nice to see you are stil around.

Inanna,

Thank you. Slowly improving.

Prim, yes, still from the renovation. Most of everything is done, but there are a few things left and Beth broke her toe a few weeks ago, which has slowed even her down. Where still not sure exactly where the books are going to go.

Do you have any hallways wide enough to fit bookshelves along one wall? We did that upstairs.

No, but we do have options. It's just a question of figuring out which are best, and how many books we really need to accommodate.
