Don't have much of a language collection, and most stuff I read is online nowadays.
But here it is anyway.

I have 14 bookcases each with 3 shelves with language books and DVDs (and that is after a major purge to get rid of the piles on the floor and in the closets).

Ma pĆ¼hendasin selle pildi Tecktightile. Eesti keel, represent!



It probably would have been just as effective for me to have provided links to each of those books at Amazon or Apollo.

Yes, "E nagu Eesti" is missing because I currently can't find it even though I was browsing it a couple of days ago in reference to how your studies were going. Also note the lack of "Colloquial Estonian" (thank God). I got to know it thanks to my public library and the borrowing period was long enough for me to work through it to see its flaws and Moseley embarrassing himself and indirectly Estonians with his effort.

You may have alternating fits of ecstasy and jealousy when following this thread at Unilang. Even though I haven't been able to find a similar thread on HTLAL with pictures, a few of the posters in Unilang's thread are familiar to me from here (e.g. E}{pugnator, Formiko, hcholm, johntm, Makrasiroutioun). Tricoteuse and Juan (a.k.a. Juan M.) also have some pretty spiffy shelves as seen at LanguageLearners although the pictures are more about how their shelves are organized/arranged rather than the linguistic content on them. Iversen's collection is indeed impressive.

P.S. I'm probably cheating a bit in this picture since I've used those Estonian-Finnish dictionaries (including that puny one on the far right) mainly when studying Finnish rather than Estonian. All the same I was surprised by the amount of Finno-Ugric stuff that I came upon in my boxes (thick binders full of printouts of the old goodies from DLI, FSI and ERIC) and on my shelf while I was sifting for the Estonian books.

Man, I am nuts in addition to being the resident fossil/old fart. :-P

I posted my Italian collection here, well what I had as of then. Now I also have the first HP book in it and I'm about to get Cavani's biography (it's been bought for me already but I let the person read it first :))

Here's my humble shelf of materials. Not full though, cause there are a few more, that are either photocopies or pdf files etc. If I have to be honest I'm quite satisfied with what I have, which by any means doesn't matter that more shouldn't be added regularly :D

Wow I saw my name mentioned at this thread. I feel famous lol =D

I buy few language books lately, mostly those in Portuguese for Brazilian speakers so that I can evaluate them, and some rarer ones. I don't have a camera right now to take pictures but it's all a bit scattered anyway. And I read a lot in the tablet instead, even if I do have paperback I actually prefer the tablet.

I never heard of that Estonian Textbook, chung.
