While I am not a fan of selfies, as they glorify narcissistic self, I am a HUGE fan of shelfies. I find that it says a lot about someone what books they have on their shelves and in what order, if any. I find shelfies to be little snapshots into someone’s soul. All Shelfies should be clickable for bigger versions. Using my phone so I’m not sure how clear individual titles would be.
But here’s my favorite Christmas present this year. Mrs Bookstooge got it for me and we read it aloud while sipping hot cocoa sitting on our couch watching the snow come down through our sliding door window.
LET THE SHELFIES BEGIN!
This first shelfie is completely doublestacked, so it is missing almost half the books. The majority of them are Terry Brooks though, so you’re not missing out on anything
There are a lot of books on this shelf I wouldn’t mind not having any more. I used to buy books whenever, unlike my now maturer and wiser self. Now I only buy books if I think I’ll read them again.
The two books lying down are the Space Trilogy by Lewis and Through Wolf’s Eyes by Lindskold. They are simply too tall to stand up on these shelves.
While I’ve read a lot of Classics, that top shelf is about all I actually own. Probably not even 1/20th of my collection 😦 If only the Government would hand out free, leather bound hardcover editions of Dickens, Austen, etc. Then I’d be a Socialist for sure!
This is kind of our catch-all, misc shelf. The books on the bottom row are ones I have on Paperbackswap, but to be honest, I’m just about ready to throw them out instead of spending money on mailing them to other people.
Mainly Manga. Just about all doubleshelved too. All 38 volumes of Yugioh are behind other books as well as all of XxxHolic and Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles. And Graphic Novels on the bottom row.
From when I USED to be a Star Wars fan. Then my collection of Wheel of Time books. I bought them all through the SFBC and am now slowly trying to find them in first edition hardcovers. I’m in no hurry. Then mostly paperbacks classics and middlegrade books.
College books and papers, reference books and our very small selection of theology related books. On par with my Classics.
There you go. I hope you enjoyed looking at those as much as I did. Feel free to oooh and ahh, ask questions, or even simply give me money.
