Home Improvement Projects – And a Random Question

DSCN1952, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

My attorney got this sweet custom made built in book shelf. I think built in bookshelves are among the coolest features in homes.

So while we’re on the topic of books I have to share a couple great ones I just finished. I loved the FQoTD when I asked for your all time favorite books. I just finished Sometimes a Great Notion by Ken Kesey and The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson. My attorney loaned me the Kesey book but I was lucky enough to have received The Girl Who Played With Fire from the publisher. Someone asked if they thought I was selling out if I posted about it. Hell no, because it was an amazing book, I could hardly put it down. It’s a sophisticated mystery. It’s one of those books that you start reading and the next thing you know it is 3am. Very hard to find good ones like this. It is the second in a trilogy, with the first being the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo which I previously recommended.

So has anybody read a great book lately? And of course if you have home improvement photos please email them to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com.
