Rachel & Dan’s library October 6, 2007

Filed under: United States — Kim @ 12:49 am

Name: Rachel & Dan

Country: United States

About the library: Our home library has about 3,000 books at any given time. We are
longtime readers and book nuts and have turned that obsession into a career, as we own Old Saratoga Books in Schuylerville, New York, USA, a used and rare bookstore.

We love all kinds of books, but particularly love books about natural history, books about books, historical mysteries, jazz books, and fiction by Michael Ondaatje, George Macdonald Fraser, Sarah Bird, Charles Dickens, Russell Banks, Robertson Davies, Patrick O’Brian and Ian Rankin.

This photo shows our library in a rare state of being orderly and neat. Usually there are more piles of things around and messes from our two kids, two cats and one fuzzy St. Bernard-mix dog.

    There are many jokers in the home lib game. You my friend have got it pegged. Even your radiator looks like books. Outstanding.

    I like this one. It reminds me of an antique book store/bohemian coffee house or something. That couch looks way too comfortable though. I’d fall asleep too easily… even while reading a really good book. : )

  7. I noticed that this is not the first time you mention the topic. Why have you chosen it again?

  8. Pam Says:

    Your library looks like one of those special comfy bookstores off the beaten path in some quaint village. Can I come over and read and maybe have a coffee with ya?? Not really possible. But thanks for the dream.
