Arty shot of top couple of shelves of one of my bookcases (the fiction one. Also the wonky, self-built, cheap Kmart one).
Less arty shot of the same bookcase as above (ie, I remembered to turn on the flash).

Hmmm…Pratchett or Zelazny? I mean, I am assuming it’s one of the two. Pretty sure I’m the only person that has read two Elisa DeCarlo books
