goth fiction bench {270/365}

I headed down to the basement tonight to grab some books from my bookshelf to read stand on.


Anyways, when I got there, my eyes skimmed over some titles and then stopped at these and I smiled, because they remind me of my girlfriend, and favourite book blogger, Natasha

goth book bench 270/365

She’s probably going to yell at me for this though.

First?  I’m standing on books.  OMG, bad.
(you know what? that was HARD! books are wobbly! who knew?)

Second?  I threw out the covers.  Blasphemy.
(whatever, they display nicely that way)

Third? (and probably the worst) The spines are cracked.  aaaaahhh!!!  The horror!
(In my defense, I’ve had these since I was around 17 years old, so there’s that. Young and foolish, running around cracking book spines. I is bad)

For sure she’s going to notice that I didn’t pay attention and stuck a book in there where it shouldn’t be.

heheheeee ….

Anyways …

I was in a funky mood so I played around with it (obviously) adding a few textures and what not. I like the 50’s old TV look of it. And maybe kind of a faux TTV?

And there you have it.

Happy *Bench Monday!

    ACK! EVIL! Mind you, if you’d have seen my original copies of VC’s books…you’d flip. 200 times worse, missing covers, yellow, torn..but in my defence, they were my older sisters!

    I still can’t believe you have the originals!

      (holy crap, could you see me trying to stand on a pile of paperbacks? LOL!)

    As usual, very creative and quirky. Love your choice of socks as well. I see you didn’t comment on those. It must be a generational thing cause I never read V.C. Andrews. Not too late to catch up though. Would women of a certain age enjoy his writing?

      Nat was having a reading challenge for these and I didn’t bother joining in.
      Her verdict? They didn’t age well. ha!
      She didn’t enjoy it much, the second time around.
      and I don’t think I would either.

    I am just now immersed in a fantastic novel: Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. I was wondering if I would be able to find another novel to lose myself in after the Stieg Larsson “Girl with the Dragon Tatoo” trilogy but this works.
