The bookshelf in the study is complete. Hooray!
And we are going to be quite boring and put only books and some DVDs in them for now.

Speaking of books, I just bought a series of Shakespeare for young readers for Son #1. Last semester, his teacher had been reading them aloud in class during free time. The books have really captured #1's imagination and he was very keen to get some for home.
It is always a struggle to find books which appeal, so at least I knew I would be on a winner with these books.

Son#1's favourite was Henry V
The plays have been retold in more accessible language and are a great introduction to Shakespeare. I ordered them online from Shakespeare's Globe in the UK and they arrived within a week of ordering them - just in time for the school holidays!
