The One Bookshelf

Forgive me for the lack of posts. Being on night shift does not give me a lot of time, and until now I’m still lacking words for my NaNo novel, and it’s seriously draining me. I’ve never written anything this serious before and my characters are refusing to talk to each other like they should. Gah.

But this post is not about that. :) Earlier today yesterday, I watched the theater adaptation Dogeaters with Julie. I loved the play, and it made me want to buy the book to read how it is. I did not buy the book, not only because I do not want to charge it in my card, but because I do not have space to keep it at home.

Okay, so maybe I do, but it’s all a mess.

Anyway, one of the things I’ve been campaigning for since my brother moved the sofa bed to his own room was my own bookshelf. The state of my room is, my computer is on my desk, where my favorite books are, while the other books that I have (all 300+ of them) are spread all around the room. I really want to clear the one on my desk and on my chest of drawers because it’s so messy, but there’s nowhere to put it. No bookshelf. :(

I want a good and solid bookshelf. I don’t want a plastic one as it will collapse after some time. I want one made of wood, like the ones below which I found in Ikea (which also sells nice baby cribs and baby furniture), which could definitely hold my books:

Flarke Bookcase

Looks nice, diba?

If my room was big eough, I’d get something like this:

Billy Combi Beech Bookcase

Or maybe something bigger. Like a floor-to-ceiling bookcase. Hmmm. :-?

I swear, after NaNoWriMo, I’m gonna read, read, read. I am so disappointed at how bad my writing and vocabulary is for this year’s NaNo. Argh. :( From December until October next year, I will build my vocabulary and read!

I am such a geek for writing a post about bookcases. Haha. Can anyone tell me where I can buy really nice bookcases in Manila? If only we have Ikea here, I would get it there. Wait…I’m gonna make someone get it there. ;) Hello, Christmas list. :D

If at some point you found this post not making sense, it’s just me still awake at 3:00am so I would adjust to night shift tonight. Hay. Two more weeks!

Back to NaNo-ing. Good morning everyone!
