Well, here's a better view of that top shelf... and in the entry for the previous photo in this series should've mentioned the third shelf down has more assorted books.
And yes, that's a modern Charlie McCarthy ventriloquist dummy sitting atop the shelves. I think I mentioned winning him on eBay. Next to him is a pyramid bank I bought at the Luxor Hotel in Vegas during my honeymoon, and above that is the license plate that I had on my Taurus (and my Hyundai before that) when I lived in Wisconsin.
You can see a little bit of the shelf next to that, on which reside many of my toys... more on those in the next entry!
