Parlor and Workspace




Please come in





Where I do most of my reading





What I see when I look up

Workspace or playspace? Both, I imagine. And I imagine you in these photos, though even without being in them, you are everywhere. Thanks for sharing your points of view, in this and so many other measureless ways.

who dusts the books,
everyone ?

(or was that Dickens' job ?

William Michaelian said...

Ed, the dust on some of those books is older than we are — some more than our ages combined. So the need for dusting seems less than pressing.

Gabriella: workspace, playspace, dreamspace, and every odd thought and emotion in between. You thank me. I thank you.

Ed Baker said...

yeah ... if it wasn't for the dust motes in my books
I wouldn't have any living, sentient beings as friends !

and most of those mites an hell-of-a-lot more intelligent and forgiving than those dead friends of mine had ever been....

Loving this room with all of my bibliophile heart and soul!!! As for the dusting...never! It only adds to the atmosphere~~~

William Michaelian said...

That it does, Jan, especially when I blow off a volume I haven’t looked at in a while....

What a great writing space? But hey—do you write by hand? On a typewriter? A computer?

William Michaelian said...

My desk and computer is in the far corner, just to the right, out of the frame, in the first picture. There are even more shelves back there. What I should really do is film the entire room, if I can catch it when it isn’t looking....

Filming is fine, William, but always get the room's permission first, especially before posting on facebook. These photos could be considered "bibliophile pornography" and therefore should always be posted with caution. We don't want any small children asking their parents, "Mommy, what are books for?" Imagine the awkwardness!

That’s it, Paul. This is the first time that dreaded word has been used on this blog. I’ll take your warning under advisement. Oops — too late. A picture is on Facebook already. The beginning of the end.
