As the end of the year approaches, I will soon undertake the annual clean-up of the bookshelves. So For your visual amusement, I offer you photos of what lurks on the shelves over my head when i sit at my computer. This is what they look like after nearly a year of accumulating more or less random stuff. Some things, you will notice, stay from year to year. Others get tucked in as I accumulate them, particularly signed copies of the books by friends. I carefully prune and reorganize it sometime after January 1. And then by the end of next year it will look something like this again.
