Fantasy author Neil Gaiman’s personal library is a book lover’s dream, stuffed to the gills with all manner of novels, reference books, and anthologies, with the occasional gargoyle or mounted stuffed head for good measure.
Literary social network Shelfari visited Sandman and Coraline author Neil Gaiman at his Minnesota home and snapped these pictures of his personal library. Gaiman’s basement is entirely filled with books, awards, and a handful of tchochkes. You can see more, larger images of the library here, but if you just want to know what books Gaiman keeps handy, Shelfari is in the process of creating a digital bookshelf based on the photos…
Pauline de Rothschild’s library at Château Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac, France.
I think I can safely say I’d never leave this place. ❤
Anyone been here before? Does it really look like my bedroom—I MEAN, LIKE THAT TINY SLICE OF HEAVEN?? 😛
Good gods, who wouldn’t want to live here? You’d never leave!
….except, y’know… to get more books. 😛
RECKLESS BEATS is a musical feature where I incorporate a little music into this bookish blog.
Today’s feature is actually inspired by this insanely gorgeous bookstore (I think??) of unknown origin.
A highly underrated band Styx, made some really great music back in their day.
And because one of their songs popped into my head upon seeing this photo, I figured… why not share one of their memorable beats with my wonderful readers!
Picture this scene: a ship piled high with books… you and the open skies… sailing away on an endless sea~
Here’s an all-time favourite of mine called Come Sail Away by Styx!
