So, inspired by Laura's Post, I decided to organize, categorize and photograph my little collection of things, and as you can see a) I have a tiny shelf and it can't hold much (hence the dual layers of things), and b) I have way more movies than books.
I have nothing against books (in fact I love them the same as movies), I'm just very particular. And for the first many years of my life, the library was where I got most of my stuff, and it's only in recent years that I've been big on buying books. I'm also a big 'know what I like, like what I know' kind of guy, which is why I have so many King and Deaver books. It's far more likely that I'll buy their newest work, than try out someone new.
The photos of things on my bed are either books that are too big to fit anywhere on my shelf, are too new and therefore can't be placed since I'm out of room, or are movies that are too awkwardly sized, or don't fit in with my current setup (sorry music dvds and anime). In the near future, I'll be building a larger DVD shelf, and then there will be more room for books, and the movies you see sitting on my floor will finally have a proper home. (also Dexter Season 2 is on loan, as is my copy of Rules of Attraction by Brett Easton Ellis)
EDIT: Ian, if you're reading this, yes that is your copy of Birthday Girl, you may have it back when we get together.
