This is the book box.
I have wallpapered the inside with an old fashioned wallpaper.
This is a picture of the bookshelf on its own. Of course it will look a lot better once I make up the books and get them on the shelves.
When I was very young I first read the below poem and loved it. I have decided I will make a framed picture of the poem to hang on the empty wall:
I've travelled the world twice over,
Met the famous; saints and sinners,
Poets and artists, Kings and Queens,
Old stars and hopeful beginners,
I've been where no-one's been before,
Learned secrets from writers and cooks,
All with one library ticket,
to the wonderful world of books.
