Bookcases in beech proved a little difficult to find; an oak finish is quite common but not so beech.

We did eventually find some in beech at Nobis Education Furniture. Furthermore, there was a narrow [400mm], tall [1800mm] unit that looked as if it would fit perfectly, as well as stand a chance of matching. Reviews looked favourable so we ordered it on 12th November. These are made-to-order units with a quoted 3-4 week lead time.

My nature library has been sculling about the floor of my cave waiting patiently. Today the wait was over. After a shade under three weeks, a nice man delivered my library shelves and very good they look, too. The workmanship looks fine so I’m very pleased.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe books are back off the floor; Britain and Europe dragons on the top shelf, world dragons on the 2nd shelf, other critters on the 3rd shelf with oversized books on the 4th.

I have imposters, though. The complete 22-volume Supercook hardback publication sits snugly on the bottom shelf. Supercook is rather outmoded compared to modern cookery styles but it’s complete, no longer available and I can’t bear to get rid of it. Sentimentality rules.

I even have room for expansion. I must find more odonata books.
