Setting up my new office/personal library. Still a work in progress, but it’s coming along.

Nice home library.

If this was a little more disorganized I’d say it was the work desk of Sherlock Holmes.

Reading spaces.

Yup, that about sums it up!

Indeed.

Indeed.

When evening comes, I return home and go into my study. On the threshold I strip off my muddy, sweaty, workday clothes, and put on the robes of court and palace, and in this graver dress I enter the antique courts of the ancients and am welcomed by them, and there I taste the food that alone is mine, and for which I was born. And there I make bold to speak to them and ask the motives of their actions, and they, in their humanity, reply to me. And for the space of four hours I forget the world, remember no vexation, fear poverty no more, tremble no more at death: I pass indeed into their world.
Niccolò Machiavelli
