Saturday morning....

I'm reorganizing my writing space, which means I have to unload a bookcase, because I'm going to put my desk where the bookcase was, and maybe see if I can squeeze another bookcase in, or move this bookcase and put in a wider one, set up the new computer I bought me for Christmas, and maybe have a little corner for my laptop, too, since I like to write on a different system than the one I'm internetting on.

It's going to be a busy day.  Had to take down my other laptop that I use for news so I can get to stuff...

About 1/3 of the way through chapter 28. Between reorganizing and shopping and giving hubby quality time, it's been a little slow...but now it's well on its way.

Some of the books on one shelf I'm packing away:

Godey's Lady's Book, bound volume for 1850 (not facsimile, a real antique. The first thing you read about in it is their story about the death of Edgar Allen Poe)
The Compleat Housewife, by Eliza Smith, a facsimile edition of an 18th century cookbook
The Make It Yourself Shoe Book
Williamsburg Restoration Reproductions: A Selection from Craft House, Williamsburg, VA
Costume Closeup:1750-1790
The last few copies of a privately printed run of knitting booklets I wrote around 2000: Lacy Openwork Knitting Stitch Patterns from 'A Workwoman's Guide' 1838: Selected and Annotated by Sue Stone  and Patterns From Miss Lambert's Handbook of Needlework, 1842: Selected and Annotated by Sue Stone.  I used to sell'em on Ebay.
Niven and Pournelle's Escape From Hell
Traditional Japanese Furniture

(Hey, how that novel get in this bunch? LOL!)  Typical stuff on a reenactor's bookshelf!

Reorganizing can be very invigorating =) I'd love to see your space when it's all set up the way you want it! It's always very important to me to have a comfortable, private place to write...and I'm just nosy, in that I want to see others' spaces, LOL :P

I'll have to take pics while it's still clean and the research books, notesbooks and papers haven't taken over all flat spaces once again...LOL. I bought some organizers that might help if I'm careful...

I don't need totally private...which is good, cause hubby and I both share the same office area...he uses his system and reads things to me, and I do the same back. The family that geeks out online together...At least we don't IM each other back and forth...

*sigh* I love old books, but not just when they are old, but when they are completely the same as the first edition. Lots of different books here and I hope that the reorganization works well!
