Bookshelf porn

Recent developments in my book buying habits have led to a distinct shortage of space in which to put said books. I'd already run out of space on the big bookshelf in the living room about 3 years ago, so le bf kindly constructed a table out of an old door (pictures of this later).

However, this exposes my books to the copious amounts of dust that settles on everything at the farm house. There's no getting around it anymore. I need another bookshelf.

While trawling the web for ideas, I came across this drool worthy website. Don't worry, it's SFW and so so pretty:

Oh yes.
Oh baby.
Yes. yes.
If you would excuse me, I need to be alone right now.

Shuttlecat is not amused

Me: "Please explain to me why my car has been there for a week and nothing has happened?".

Garage: "We are still waiting for authorisation from the factory to replace the cam belt and cylinder heads on their cost. Perhaps you would like to accept the quote so we can start work and then you can claim the money from them later?".

Me: "... Give me the number of this so-called factory so I may impress upon them the urgency of the matter, i.e. I am effectively without transport and am using someone else's car".

Garage: "I will phone you back in 2 hours".

It is now 3 hours later.
