Don- I live in Richmond Kentucky and attend school at EKU. I live about 3 miles from the civil war battlefield. The name of the university is deceptive though if you are unfamiliar with any parts of the state-it is really central kentucky, only about 20 miles from Lexington and the University of Kentucky.

Yes, it has been quite a long time since a earthquake hit Kentucky, but I suppose it is inevitable. There is a pretty famous fault line (is that the term?)that crosses the western part of the state. If my understanding is right, it could produce a very larger earthquake.

As to the method of book shelving using boards and bricks, I suppose that would indeed be very sturdy. But have you any idea the expense involved in such an endeavor? Lumber and brick cost? Geez, you have to remember I am a poor college student! I might as well make a book shelf from gold bricks, and use faberge eggs as bookends. Or, *gasp*, not buy beer for, geez, a solid week?LOL
