Victoria tagged me with this way too long ago, and I have just now gotten around to doing it. The #shelfie is simply a picture of your bookcase (pretty awesome tag, huh?), and I’ve split it up into two pictures so you can see the books more clearly.
Shelf one (below): This is where the best of the best go, and it’s predominantly series. From left to right: Some pictures books (because I’m a child at heart) that wouldn’t fit on the other shelves, a collection of C. S. Lewis quotes, Edgar Allen Poe’s Complete Collection of Tales and Poems, The Illustrated Library of World Poetry, The Stormlight Archive, The Wingfeather Saga, Oracles of Fire, Children of the Bard #3, The Circle Series, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, Tales of Goldstone Woods #s 4, 5, & 7, and Mistborn. (And don’t ask me what I’m going to do when Stormlight Archive #3 comes out—that’ll require major rearrangement.)
Shelf two (above): This is the second-best shelf (my favorites are on the top shelf, and as the shelves go down, so does my preference for the books on those shelves). From left to right: Bibles, devotionals, non-fiction (like One Thousand Gifts, Do Hard Things, and a bunch of Lotr-related non-fiction), some fiction/fantasy (like Peretti, Bradbury, and more Tolkien), A Wrinkle of Time Quintet #s 1 +2, Space Trilogy, and then a bunch of younger-grade historical fiction.
Shelf three (below): Random novels (Heidi, a Dekker book, Divergent, etc.), Emily of New Moon series, and then more younger-level series, like Laura Ingalls and a bunch of historical fiction.
Shelf four (above): The stack on the left is of calendars and magazines (primarily WORLD). Then there are a bunch of little kid books and other miscellaneous tomes that didn’t belong anywhere else.
In the closet is my stack of library books (I used to keep them in my bookshelf, but that didn’t last long). By my bed, I have a basket of all the books I’m reading currently, as well as my big study Bible and Nook, on which I have many Bryan Davis books, the rest of Tales of Goldstone Wood, the Blood of Kings trilogy, and a bunch of other stuff. All of my other favorite books are scattered throughout the house on my family’s who-knows-how-many bookshelves.
Now, I’m supposed to tag people, but this time I’m going to make it open-ended. If you want to do this, just let me know in the comments and say that I tagged you. Thanks for reading, and I can’t wait to see your bookshelves!
