A "crèche" of Penguins (Karyn's bookcases)

A portion of the 2000-volume personal library of Karyn Reeves, who writes "A Penguin a Week."  She has an excellent blog; if you share her enthusiasm, there is a Penguin Collectors Society.

And I can't resist contrasting her bookshelves with this stack on a wall (original credit unknown) posted at Book Porn:

Addendum: My series of posts on "reader's bookcases," has now accumulated 40+ entries, but I need to move on to other things, so I'm going to call a temporary halt to what has been an interesting venture.

I can't end, however, without reposting (from two years ago) these two remarkable walls of books.


  1. Great series....I've enjoyed it, and the stories that accompany, very much!

  2. I sense a spinoff opportunity. ;)
