What’s On The Bookshelf? – II

Welcome back to the second installment of What’s On The Bookshelf?
This is where my compulsion to group authors together starts to go astray and my shelves begin to become a mixed bag of fiction and non-fiction.
Much more telling though is that this is the beginning of my public exposure as having what Buddhists call a Monkey Mind.

Small bookcase – Top Shelf, Second Half

  • Metal Fatigue – Sean Williams
  • Deception Point – Dan Brown
  • Haunted – Kelley Armstrong
  • Tales From Shakespeare – Charles and Mary Lamb
  • A Small Death in Lisbon – Robert Wilson
  • Atlas Shrugged – Ayn Rand
  • The Richest Man in Babylon – George S. Clason
  • Mulliner Nights – P.G.Wodehouse
  • Angels and Demons – Dan Brown
  • Six Thinking Hats – Edward de Bono
  • Tactics – Edward de Bono
  • Losing my Virginity – Richard Branson
  • Geisha – Liza Dalby
  • Digital Fortress – Dan Brown
  • A Dog’s Life – Peter Mayle

Still, at least the 18th and 19th century literature is now joined by modern thrillers, real people, mind expansion and yet another book about small hairy creatures.

Now what was I saying about adding modern literature to the collection? Maybe I went into reverse mode? And it looks like I must have at least one book featuring a furry beast on each shelf. What’s that saying about me?
I promise that the other shelves aren’t quite as dry, really.

A monkey mind expressed through books? Most definitely.
