What does your bookshelf say about you?

Posted by on Jan 28, 2013 in Books | 8 comments

I spotted the fabulous Keynko has a book shelf sharing bloghop going, and seeing as I had a lovely time looking through everyone else’s shelves it seemed only fair to share ours…..

So what does my book shelf say about us? Well, firstly- that we need a new one and this is rather overcrowded. Books are stashed two deep and piled high. They have spread to nearby window ledges, and piles in various rooms. This despite having had a ruthless clear out under two years ago.

I think it says we have a sense of humour, not only are there many books written by comedians dotted about, it is also adorned with a Fez and some Muppets!

It says we like all sorts- I spy a fair collection of music biographies, sci-fi novels, some tasty cheese ridden trash, the odd classic, some great modern fiction, travel writing, science and reference books.

I get serious bookshelf envy. If I won the lottery I would love a library room, for books and music, with fabulous shelving for all our goodies, and comfy seating and fabulous lighting for the perfect chill out with a book and some music.  But for now it might have to just be another cheap shelf from eBay or the like!

If like me you are a nosey cow, pop along to some of the other links below and see what everyone else has on their shelves!

    ohh I like your bookshelves! We’ve got tons of the things now – although half have records and CDs in them, but I reckon that still counts!

    Now I’ve just got to organise my kindle too…. both are a disorganised mess – though at least you can’t stack kindles on the landing like we do with all new books :-)

      Yes- we have several more housing CDs, vinyl, and DVDs! I need to save up and buy a big wall of matching ikea ones so it looks less of a mish mash in here!

      Ha, your house sounds like ours! Nothing matches. At all. We’re a jumble of things we’ve bought as we needed them!!

    I love a cluttered bookcase! It looks well loved and well used! As it should be! Thanks for joining in lovely Miss Cisco!!

    This is my kind of bookcase! You try ever so hard to get some sense of order to it, but eventually it will just gravitate back towards organised chaos. It does look homely though, but makes dusting a nightmare!

    Ha ha! Yours looks a lot like mine! Two deep and then more books rammed on top! Have just bought a new bookshelf for the bedroom, so that looks respectable at the moment. It won’t last!
