Heart breaking, I feel for ya.
Sorry for your shelf :/
Jekyll is one lucky cactus to have survived this sort of mayhem. Re: The bookcase, it was probably karma. I do hope you'll be able to fit a large enough replacement bookcase into your room in addition to your great grandma's desk ... speaking of which, wow, what an amazing thing to be given!

I'm pretty excited about it! I use to play at it all the time and go through all the treasure that she kept in the drawers.
Wonderful -- so it'll come with all sorts of great memories as well!

My life really almost became a Meme, because if the shelf wouldn't have fallen straight sideways. It would have actually fallen on me while I was sleeping. However, I might have given my downstairs neighbor a heart attack.
Ouch. Gives a whole new meaning to the words "while you were sleeping ..."

Pretty much. My cats were not amused by all of it either. Took them a couple of days to go back to sleeping in my room again.

Me too! I was really surprised I didn't have a few books with busted spines or bent hard covers. A junk of collection are second hand. So some are already a but busted.
Ahhh! This has happened to me. I had built in book cases at my last house. My hubby was doing plumbing work and thought he had to go through a wall, he gutted the back panel to my book case. He slept on the couch for two nights, then I came home from work and he had refinished the bookcase I had built in 10th grade shop class. It is the one I posted on here. He got to sleep in the bed that night. With the door locked. This morning I came home and found that he had put my wall shelves up and iinstalled a lock on the door...lol

Holy monkeys! I do in fact need that for my reading area! My bean bag chair has seen much better days.

Glad everyone is okay. One of my bookshelves bit the dust in our recent move. :(

Looks like an earthquake aftermath! I'm glad no one and nothing got hurt.
