I was tagged by Amber at YA Indulgence. Thank you for the opportunity to share my mess I call my shelving.
Describe your bookshelf (or wherever it is you keep your books-it doesn’t actually have to be a shelf!) and where you got it from.
Er, my shelving is eclectic. I have 10 milk crates, three DVD shelves, the floor in front of my window and then a bookshelf I purchased from Target. After we moved from a huge 2 bedroom apartment to a smaller one bedroom, I am desperate to find book space.
Do you have any special or different way of organizing your books?
Just try to find a place for them all….Kili sometimes helps.
What is the thickest/biggest book on your shelf?
The Cosmos coffee table book is like a sled. Kili was VERY impressed.
And the thinnest?
The Whipping Boy. It is SUCH A SMALL LITTLE BOOK. Also, I hate those damn stickers on the front of books! Those should be totally illegal.
Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?
Yah! Kara bought me Compulsion for Yule, and I am just waiting to get to it.
Most expensive book?
I bought this off of eBay about 12 years ago and paid about $75 for it. It was a birthday present to myself. First edition and EVERYTHING!
The last book you read on your shelf?
Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda. This was SUCH a cute read! I might have to keep this one instead of selling it off.
Do you have more than one copy of a book?
If I have any extra copies, then I tend to give them away. I do have many duplicates of ebooks/physical books.
What’s the newest addition to your shelf?
I bought this one totally off of recommendations. You all are a horrible influence on me.
What’s the most recently published book on your shelf?
Made for You. I just totally dig that cover.
The oldest book on your shelf?
My friend gave me this collection of 12 small Shakespeare books a while ago, and we are looking up the publication date for the set. I just love it so much. It is SO PRETTY.
A book you’d hate to let out of your sight (aka a book you never let someone borrow)?
My Special Edition of Dreams of Gods and Monsters because of the artwork in the back (see above). If someone wants to borrow it, I just buy them the book.
Most beat up book?
My New Tolkien Companion is a little worse for wear.
Most pristine book?
Seriously, 99% of my books are in excellent condition.
A book from your childhood?
Babysitters Club FTW!!!
A book that’s not actually your book?
I was given a copy of The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by a friend. I still need to read it
I am a horrible friend.
A book with a special/different cover (e.g. leather bound, soft fuzzy cover etc.)?
The Special Edition cover of The Lightning Thief is a slip cover with beautiful artwork.
A book that is your favorite color?
Book that’s been on your shelf the longest that you STILL haven’t read?
I honestly cannot answer this one. I suppose you should just see my TBR shelf on GR and get the gist…
Any signed books?
I am going to display one of my favorites: Claire Legrand’s The Year of Shadows. <3
Now who do I tag…..seriously, this is the worse part of a meme. So, if you want to do this, please leave a comment so I can keep an eye out for your own post!
