my own personal bibliothèque

Thank you to everyone who offered their opinion on the titles I'd been considering for my presentation. Inok offered some excellent advice and, after submitting my proposal information, the official title will be "Living in Forgotten Asia" for the fact that (a) it refers to how pastoralists and horticulturalists are often overlooked in today's agricultural & industrial societies and (b) it brings up the point that Siberia and Central Asia are often ignored when it comes to the geography and culture of Asia. Take that, organizers.

I also uploaded a bunch of photographs from the excavation of our archaeology site this afternoon, and one of the extras that was included in the batch was a picture of the book case in my room. I have an additional three boxes of books here in Pullman, as well as another four or five at my parent's house, but I don't really have the room for any more shelving at the moment. Oh well.

Re: oh~ nice!
I've only cleaned it once since August. I pull out my books often enough where they don't collect dust though.

Do you have a library of your own that I'll get to see some day?

They look nice, even though I don't recognize any of the books that you own. Thanks for sharing, Emma!

Many French versions, that's why.

That would do it. :P While I have read a few French books in the past the only thing I'm likely to recognize now is a collection of Tintin works (which I do know was created by a Belgian!).

You have an Everyman's Library book on the top shelf and an Oxford's world classic on the middle one...what are they? I have that red French dictionary. You like Umberto Eco, teehee.

The Everyman's Library book on the top shelf is Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky, but I checked everything on the middle shelf and couldn't find anything from Oxford's World Classic. Which book were you looking at for that one?

I do indeed like Umberto Eco. There's even a stray book of his not shelved with the others on the bottom shelf. And that red French dictionary might just be the thickest book in my collection. :D

On the middle shelf on the far left, the one on top laying sideways with the black spine. That looks like an Oxford's World Classic? Or maybe it's a Penguin...I always confuse the two damn it!

It's a Penguin, and the fact that you can tell publishing companies apart by their logos on the spine has me quite impressed! The book in question is Melville's Moby Dick, which I picked up on sale while in Vancouver, BC.
