Here’s some visuals of my library, some cool bookmarks and my “booktable” Blook.

My wife bought me this wonderful chest of drawers that looks like a stack of books some time ago. I recently learned that such objects that resemble books but aren’t have come to be called “blooks.” There are four drawers, which I use for miscellaneous maps and pamphlets. It sits next to my favorite reading chair near the fireplace, and I usually stack the several books I’m reading on top of it. I call it my “booktable” (pronounced with some whimsy as “book-duh-bul”). Perfect for the book nerd I am!
My sister-in-law created these great bookmarks for me as a graduation gift to celebrate my Masters in History degree. They contain covers of books I have reviewed here and excerpts from the reviews. Aren’t they cool?
