My even older bookcase

I hadn't forgotten about my bookcase series. You don't get off that easily.

This shelf may be small, but it contains one of my all-time favourite books: Amsterdamse Kroegen Encyclopedie (Amsterdam Pub Encyclopedia). My guide to Amsterdam pubs can only ever aspire to being the second best. Amsterdamse Kroegen Encyclopedie gives full details of all 1,278 pubs in Amsterdam. A remarkable achievement that could well never be repeated.

But have you got Hugh Shipman's 'The Serious Drinkers Guide to Amsterdam'?

Classic.

This all sounds like a job for LibraryThing. Go on, give us a look through your stuff.

Fatman, I do have Hugh's guide. An excellent little book. See if you can spot it on one of my upcoming bookshelf pictures.

Beer nut, I intend showing you all of mine. Books that is. Today I was a bad boy. I ordered two more books. It's like an addiction. No it's not like an addiction, It IS an addiction.
