Speaking of reading, here's a peek at the personal library of Mr. Blogger. This is one of several shelves in Mike's man cave. There are many more around the entire house. (The peril of being married to another avid reader.) Subject matter shown in these two pictures includes fire departments, fire apparatus, fire stations, fire alarm systems, FDNY badges, Chicago firehouses, Baltimore apparatus,  Japanese fire engines, general firefighting history, general architecture, and maybe a graphic novel or two.

Yeah…I am hoping to build my collection up some more. I had a really good collection, but a couple of moves and a divorce thinned it out some (actually, a lot). Centerpiece of my fire/EMS colelction is my autographed ‘Fire Command’. Then of course there is my original EMT text- Emergency Care, 1st ed.

Y’all really don’t want to see my Stephen King collection :)
Over the years I have spent waaaay too much money at The Readers Corner on Hillsborough St.
I have also acquired a Kindle 2 that goes with me everywhere with about 90 books loaded onto it.
Rik Rassmussen in Durham convinced me to read War and Peace so I am reading that alongside about 5 other books.
Add in my Monitoring Times Magazine collection from the last 20 years. Oy Vey.
Attention Deficit Disorder FTW! :)

I love seeing bookshelves of avid readers and especially firebuffs/enthusiasts. One curious item in the left shelf photo – I also own the Zurier/Bounds tome on the American Firehouse. My edition is copyright 1982. It looks like the spine of your edition is just title “The Firehouse.” What is the copyright of this edition? I also own a hardback. Interesting that they had different titles per edition. The Zurier book is brilliant. We’re due for another massive history of the American Firehouse – who wants to team up to write one?

Ah – I see in the 2nd photo that it’s an edition published by Artabras. The edition I have is published by Abbeville Press. Here’s some research/info on your edition: http://isbndb.com/d/book/the_firehouse.h... Looks like it was reissued in 1991. Very cool.
