What’s on your bookshelf?


Seriously, these are paintings are  awesomeJane Mount makes custom paintings of your favorite books (or you can buy prints of popular titles).  Wouldn’t they make great gifts too?  You could include all romantic/love themed books for a wedding present, baby books for a baby shower gift, etc.
I think the hardest part would be narrowing down which books to include.  For my favorites I would have to include a couple of books by Robin McKinley, probably Beauty and The Hero and the Crown, A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Ordinary Princess by M. M. Kaye, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte & Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery.

    On my bookshelf: Timeline & Sphere, both by Michael Chrichton, Where The Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein, How to Eat Fried Worms bt Thomas Rockwell, The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary, and the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy ‘trilogy’ which actually consists of five books: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant At The End of the Universe, ‘Life, The Universe, and Everything’, So Long and Thanks For All The Fish, and Mostly Harmless.

      I’m a big fan of Michael Crichton books. There is a new one coming out in the fall- apparently he finished 1/3 of it before he passed away. The synopsis sounds pretty interesting (and reminds me of Timeline w/ the bit about graduate students): “…a group of graduate students who are lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company specializing in micro-robotics. Conflict with the head of the company leaves the group fighting for their lives when they find themselves physically transformed and cast out into the rain forest, with only their scientific expertise and wits to protect them.” Jody
