Bookshelf Porn : Not What You Think
« on: January 12, 2015, 04:40:00 PM »
I've fallen in love with this website and had to share it with you all. I am a big fan of books and books being in the home taking over every room.

http://bookshelfporn.com  

The website goes on forever, share your favorite ones or maybe you have one of your own?

Here are some samples of the website, I can spend hours looking at all the pictures.

That is cool!

Sidenote: The recent trend to label anything that is interesting to look at as porn has got to be one of the more annoying developments on the internet. It is almost as annoying as the whole "break the internet" craze.

I was happy to see these on the website. We have a few of them here in my city. They work on the honor system and surprisingly it works. I figured all the books would keep getting stolen but I haven't lost all my faith in humanity yet.

Well at least the misogyny in that is subtle (I mean compared to the execrable title of this thread).

Yes, put it beyond doubt, why don't you, that your books are just for appearances.

Misogyny is only one problem with the use of the word. (Other than that, I'm ignoring your comment.)

Here is a picture taken yesterday of my infamously large home library. I apologize ahead of time to Yesh and those of like mind for all the visible back flesh in this "bookshelf porn," but I think it nonetheless has enough artistic merit to post it here.

Someone at my church was just telling me that they purchased a bookshelf that can be made into a coffin. I wonder if it is similar to that.

I have seen coffins with shelving used for books.  When you look at it, it's obviously a coffin.

That gives me an idea. If I can find an old piano with the inner parts no longer worth saving, perhaps I could make such a fantastic bookcase.

Just unload the shelves and in you go!

Yes. These are very cool. I have several of these in my neighborhood. Ive found some cool stuff including a copy of Deification in Christ by Panaotis Nellas from St. Vlads Press. I was surprised, but I actually have a lot of Orthodox people on my street.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

That sounds fantastic to me

ALso, ebooks are  terrible for reading, but I do like having a searchable .html or .pdf to bring to class fort quick searches.

I saw a book on sale once called "Porn For New Moms". Nothing in it was actually pornographic, it was just pictures of fathers changing diapers, doing housework, taking care of baby, etc.

Wouldn't be much fun in an earthquake.


Also, I still buy physical copies because trying to sit and read a long ebook makes me too restless. I don't know what it is, maybe I mentally associate the net with sound bites only or something.
