I decided to copy Tasha over at The Bookie Monsters and do a series showing my bookshelves and what’s on them. To be honest I just wanted an excuse to write more about books. Just a warning this is going to be a very long series. I have many many books.
One more thing I want to say. I am not in any way trying to show off. I was very fortunate in that my parents encouraged me to read from a young age. What you see is the result of a 25 year obsession with books.
To start I thought I would give a little overview of my bookshelves
These are my newest shelves. I like to call them the rainbow because the books are ordered in rainbow order. Obviously. These shelves are also almost full so I believe I will be needing another trip to IKEA soon.
My Billy bookcase from IKEA holds the rest of my books. I keep most of my heavier paperbacks and hardbacks in it. Basically all the books that were too heavy for the rainbow shelves. Actually no thats a lie, my dad didn’t put the rainbow shelves up right so they can’t hold as much weight as they should be able to.
The shelves above my desk are for my review copies and oddly shaped books which didn’t fit anywhere else. Seriously, who decided mass market paperbacks were a good idea.
And finally we have my art books. These were originally on the shelves above my desk but art books are heavy and I was worried about the integrity of the shelf after it started bending in the middle.
