    I thought it might be fun to have a thread on who has what books... plus, it may help to know who to ask if they need something looked up...

    Here's my current ceph bookshelf, and I'm looking forward to adding Colin and Nancy's book soon!



    I should probably transcribe the list for ease of searching, but the pic is somehow more tangible-seeming.

    Most of the stuff I use is in individual papers rather than books, but here are the books I use most.

    Nice! That's better than a lot of university libraries I've looked at.

    Some of my ceph books and a few of my aquarium books. I have many of the TFH books for reference (to learn how they handle photos, layout, references, etc.)

    i have some other ceph and aquarium books in other bookcases -I don't keep them all in one place!

    Jana, you might want to look at the Cowboy and the Octopus (center bottom with my collection of kids books). I could not talk my grandson into a reading session this weekend so I have not read it but the idea was to cute to pass up.

    My office is a catastrophe ... many books are with others, but here's what I've been left with (and a terribly messy series of box files that I've carted around for near 20 years)

    Where did you aquire all the colorful stuffed animals Steve? We haven't been able to find many than Garrett doesn't already has.
    Thanks for the suggestion about the book Cowboy and the Octopus. Has anyone read Billy the Squid before? That is another book Garrett is wanting.

    P.S. Garrett was wondering if Steve had received his emails yet?

    While this book is not on my son's personal bookshelf, he found it in the new release section of our local library. Garrett got very excited when he came to the last page. He saw the man he wants to meet "before he is a teen". I think we all know him, Steve O'Shea.

    Excellent book

    The Cowboy and the Octopus book is wonderful. I got it for my son's birthday. He loved it and the adults who read it thought it was really funny. Thanks for alerting me to this book.
