Field Guides

OK, I have a problem. I collect field guides. It hasn't gotten completely out of hand...yet. But I seem to come home from every trip with a couple more. And then I choose new groups of creatures to study, for which I need... another field guide.

At the moment I just have them in two bookcases, neither completely full. This one:

(larger) has fish, other reef creatures, scuba diving and aquarium books. Plus computer stuff too, though I'm gradually getting rid of those.

And this bookcase:

(larger) has birds, insects, and everything else. The set of thin books in blue or white spines on the lower shelf are of my own photos, from each dive trip I've taken.

So it's not too bad yet. It was kinda crazy when they were all in one bookcase, with many stuck in flatwise on top of properly shelved books. So I added the second one earlier this year. But every time I go to a new country (New Guinea) or look at new creatures (Lichens) I need more. We'll see how long these bookcases last.
