Country: United States (Hawaii)
About the library: My bookcases were built by my mom and step-mom as a Christmas gift back in 2002. Made of knotty pine, each case is 8′ tall x6′ wide, which spans 12′ wide behind me. My mother also made the picnic table you see in front, which is what we use as our dining table, which I consider the two greatest gifts they could have ever given me.
My books are arranged and sectioned by topic, which includes my 19th century print editions, oversized reference books, economics, personal finance, children’s books, Hawaiian language literature and Polynesian bible collection (Hawaiian, Maori, Rarotongan, Tongan, Samoan and Tahitian). Oh, my husband gets a shelf and each child gets one, too, with baskets to hide their stuff (the table is in the way of that view).
