So I thought I'd show you mine!
Now, I am green with envy at the personal library of Lori from Escape Between the Pages (see here), and have to say that since I get 80-90% of the books I read from one of two local libraries, my own bookshelves are nothing like this. I also tend to donate a lot of the books that I've bought to the library that I work at after I've read them- since the teen section there is so bad. So this is what I have left...
This is the bookshelf that sits between the living room and the kitchen
Stupidly, for someone who works in a library, these are shelved in a pretty random order really. I try to keep series together, but otherwise it is pretty much in order of how long ago I bought a book, or which covers look prettier next to each other (colour-wise, or size, or just randomly). The books on top are ones that I have lined up to read next. The top picture was actually taken a week ago, when I had these titles to read
This had changed to all these titles today as a couple of others that I've been waiting for just came in the post.
Right, moving on, this is what used to be my dining table, but has now been piled up with so many books and extra junk that I don't actually use it anymore. These are all books from either library sales, second-hand book shops or jumble sales. These are the kinds of books that I think I'd like... if I could ever get around to them. Truth is I doubt I ever will. I keep buying/borrowing new ones.
Upstairs I have another book shelf
On the wooden bookshelf underneath is all the classics, plus old uni textbooks
I hope you enjoyed browsing through my bookshelves. I know it's not much but there they are.
