While recovering from surgery a month ago, I finally had time to organize the books. I am now about 90% there.It feels good to be organized. I will need to create more room soon. Or purge the drek.

I'm in the middle of doing the same thing,alphabetizing 10,000+ comics. It's a pain in the ass but fun anyway.

Nice!👍 My comic book room is more of a library but I will share some pics anyway. Several years back I decided to stop bagging and boarding my reading comics as it creates a deterrent to actually reading them. I keep my slabs and collector comics in a separate room. My 80s comics are filed chronologically here.

My Harveys and miscellaneous 60s and 70s in the bookcases.

And my hardcovers, tpbs and other items of interest in additional bookcases.



Great idea for a thread! I would love to see pictures of everyone’s reading room.

@michaelekrupp - That’s the neatest and best organized “reading” room I have ever seen! Now I feel like even more of a slob.

Impressive brother...makes my heart skip like a school girl...love that room.

I'm down to 15 long boxes and I am meeting the Dunkin donuts girl at my house this afternoon because I heard her say she loves comics while in line last wk...Im giving her 3 full long boxes for free. need to get this stuff out.

But if my room looked like yours, id never touch any of it..it's just a thing of beauty

These are my reading copies. I am not overly concerned if they are in mint condition or not. If I started worrying about that, I would be afraid to handle them at all, which would lead to less reading and, ultimately, less enjoyment.

Thanks so much! It’s nice to talk to people who appreciate books! That’s the main reason I joined this forum! My wife and most of the people in my everyday life are completely indifferent.

@michaelekrupp Very nicely done. The row of Salvatore books...I *had* a bookshelf like that, all hardcover first editions. During my end of service move, the moving company "lost" two boxes: the one with my hardcover books, and the one I had marked "games". The Games box was a fake out; it was full of socks & underwear, but losing the books hit hard. Finding a replacement hardcover copy of Servant of the Shard in good condition has been a trial. Still, fantastic organization skills sir!

Thanks. I am a huge Salvatore fan. I have the new book, “Timeless”, but haven’t started it yet. Sorry to hear about your lost books 😕. I feel your pain.

It went well but has taken a long time to recover. I would say that I am about 70% healed. I really enjoyed having some time with my books and not feeling guilty about getting other things done being I was not supposed to do anything strenuous.

That is amazing. At first glance, it has that busy Jack Kirby feel to it.
