Mr. Bookshelf

My name is Mr. Bookshelf and yes, that’s right, in addition to storing (and showcasing) all your rereadables, I also learned to talk. What exactly is a rereadable? Well, that’s sounds like a good topic for a campfire talk. | Buck Buckner | Burt Silver | Bobby Angel | Uncle and Uncle | Dino | Cap’n K | Bob & Rudi | Boogie | Mr Bookshelf | Cowboy | Campfire venues | Main campfire | About Campfire Park

Intro - Rereadable

Rediscover Your Bookshelf

By Campfire Park

And I know what you’re thinking:

I'm just another bookshelf that collects dust.

What are your rereadables?

Actually, not at all. I’m actually quite evolved. In fact, I’ve learned to speak! A talking bookshelf!? Well yes, what was I supposed to do? Ever since the invention of the smartphone, people have been ignoring me. So much so that I accumulated a thick layer of dust. That’s when I took matters into my own hands and learned to speak. I had to! Really it was the only way to distract you all from your phones.

Why spend time with your bookshelf?

Think of me as the “daytime equivalent” of a campfire. It’s where you go to reconnect with what’s important in your life. Most of all your Rereadables – i.e. those book you go back to time and time again. So welcome and pull up a seat:

We have a lot of rereading to do!

Adventures of Ranger Rusty
A campfire tale

Every once in a great while,

There’s a book that shows up new on the scene.

At first people don’t pay in much mind.

But over time its deeper meaning, and entertainment value starts to soak in. To cut to the chase, I’m talking about a book, and not just any old book, but a book that was part of a trilogy written by two park rangers named Robert V. Sobczak and Rudi Heinrich.Visit the trilogy’s webpage

The thing about this book:

They never set out to write a book, let alone a trilogy.

The trilogy was written from 2015 to 2020

Their simple goal:

A 30 minute campfire talk.

In action at the campfire talk

The rest, shall we say, is campfire legend.

Or more specifically, The Legend of Campfire Charlie.

It’s not only rereadable …

It’s a worthy addition on any bookshelf … in my opinion.

Vanishing bookshelf

Folks, is it just me – or is the bookshelf a vanishing institution?

Remember the good old days when your bookshelf, not a dang computer, was your primary connection to the larger world.

I’m not saying that everything changes for the worse.

But there is a big side of me that laments the demise of the bookshelf.

Not that mine is going anywhere fast.
