"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

Animals. Why? I don't know. But I has been atracted to them since my memory remembers. Animals in books. Yes, too. My love for animal books is no secret here inside the frontiers of Guelyland.

Is kind of funny because i only speak Spanish, english and swedish. but i got books in german, italian, portuguese and french. I guess i like the pictures i guess i know what they say.

Well, here it is: my animal or as i wish i could call it "My Natural History Library". I only wish the books i left in Perú could be here with me as well. But that's another and kind of expensive story so, what you see is what you get. Not much for some, a lot for others. But in this days i try to keep only what i love to have.

Much of this is made of what we call "juvenile books". Then, some animal encyclopedias and a bit deeper section when it comes to big cats (and jaguars, of course).
So if some of you like animal books feel free to browse the bookshelves and see if we have some title in common. That always gives a funny kick.

I like these books so much that i couldn't help but taking pictures of then. Showing off them to you.
Favorites? Those Vida Animal blue volumes in the right side of the highest row. I am thinking of writting about them for a long time. Hope I'll made it one of these days. For now this is my way to tell you I love animals, I love books and I love books about animals. My books about animals.

I love pictures of books on bookshelves. There is something soothing and enticing about their presence.

Bueno es como un homenajillo a mi cariño por los libros de animales. dónde lo voy a expresar sinó en mi pequeño "reino". Y es que como me mude a algo más grande no hace mucho ahora los quiero tener en distintas habitaciones. Cómo para sentir que toda mi casa es como una biblioteca. La presencia de los libros me dan una sensación acogedora. La cosa es que tus libros los tengas cerca tuyo y ahi si te envidio que me acuerdo los muchos que me quedaron en Perú en cajas que ni siquiera puedo ver. Y te tomo la palabra con lo del libro de Bloom, que quiero saber de que va.
