Shelfies

Post by Tim49 »

Here's one that might be fun.
This gave me an idea.
http://www.theguardian.com/books/booksb ... r-shelfies

But what about all you other martial arts bibliophiles?
What do your bookshelves look like, and what do they tell us?

If I get the chance I'll snap a picture tonight. (not sure I know how to upload the pic though)

No posing though. (Warts and all!) I'll try and include my copy of 'Bodhisatva Warriors' AND 'the Magus of Java', which I keep to remind myself what an idiot I am.

My study is in a state of disrepair as still sorting out the rest of the house but I will get round to it one day.

I was going to suggest a willy measuring contest - but I'd almost certainly lose that too! ;)

Lighten up Gary :-)
When you go into someone's house don't you find yourself drawn towards their bookshelves?
With martial artists it's fun to see which books are in circulation and could act as a springboard for recommendation of decent books.
I notice Shep has a copy of Uyenishi's early book on Jujutsu, it's quite rare, I wonder which edition it is?

I used to buy books all the time, now I hardly bother.

Hi Tim

It's the sixth edition. Still cost a bit though!

Managed to access the bookcase now.

There are a couple of books missing or hidden behind stuff but this is most of what I have.
