Book Shelves, part II

Inspired by Todd's post, I thought I'd share one of my shelves as well.

I like to take the dust jackets off my books.  Somehow, they feel more solid that way, and it is also easier to create a harmonious line of books.

1Q84, of course, is the exception since it doesn't work without the dust jacket . . . I have no idea where I'm going to put it!

1Q84: Hardcover


  1. Can't say I recognize a lot of these without the dust jackets, but I see a Rushdie I haven't read (i've only made it through Midnight's Children) and the essential Borges Collected Fictions.

    Of the ones that are shown, what's your favorite?

  2. If you look hard, you'll see The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet.
