Joanne says of her bookshelves:
There are two main book cases in my house. I say main because there are several unofficial ones too such as the stack next to my bed which currently contains, among others, JR Crook's Sleeping Patterns and the carefully balanced dual piles that are currently holding up a little box containing a wild mouse, brought in by one of my 6 cats and tenacious enough to survive. My book shelf is an eclectic mix of practical and impractical. Cookery books rub shoulders with autobiographies and wine making books. I find the dominance of Dan Brown's book interesting because I have never read it. It was leant to me by a friend and I can't remember who it was. I have it on my book shelf in the vain hope that at some point, someone will come round and say "Oh, is that my book?" and I can reply, "Why yes it is, here you go."
Of course, among the books there is the obligatory remote controlled helicopter, the remote controlled spider robot and the essential red glitter spray, which personally I feel that no book shelf is complete without.
The second shelf is my children's book case, also eclectic but containing some incredible books. I am a huge fan of Dr Seuss, a love which my children share, and there are a few of them here, including 'Oh the Places You'll Go' which I believe to be a manual for living! I would, however, like to believe that 'Business NLP for Dummies' and Loki the kitten have found their way onto the shelves by mistake.
