This is a close-up of one of the bookshelves above my desk. This one contains books by my two favorite authors, Pat Conroy, and Rick Bragg...as well as an assortment of signed books that I've obtained from authors and a few books on top that I'm reading at the moment.
This is the other shelf with a mixture of books, each and every one of them telling a story about me and my life at the time when they entered it.
I don't know. I think I need a little more kitsch. Maybe a sock monkey or a robot.
