I have tried to keep each shelf a singe subject/topic/genre, but as room gets tights, books just get placed where there is room. I have a 4th bookshelf in the living room the we also have and several other books on my Kindle app.
I LOVE books but have a small home and finding space for my treasures is becoming difficult. I started buying books on Kindle, and it’s a wonderful way to read, but there are many limitations. There is something magical about seeing your little babies all lined up that I miss. (I don’t miss the dusting of course) and not having books to share is a bummer too. So as you can see, my book storage is full and I need to go through and maybe find a home for some of them so I can make room for some upcoming newbies.
I chose my top three books for various reasons:
Twilight: I stopped reading for several years because I was busy with babies and school. This book reminded me how much I love reading a good book with a story that sweeps you away. There are so many reasons I love this book.
Hunger Games: This book represents that not all books are what they seem. I didn’t think I would like it, the summary of the book wasn’t interesting to me because it’s not the type of book I would typically be interested in, so I thought. I began reading this book purely from recommendation and it ended up being one of my favorites.
Bran Hambric by Kaleb Nation: This is one of my favorite books because I adore the author and his bio. He began writing this book as a 14 year old homeschooler and published it at 20. This book represents the results of hard work and perseverance. As a home schooling family, this book reminds me how the hard work will pay off for my children some day. I love the story, the innocence and the mystery behind the main character’s search for answers.
Your shevles look very nice to me! Thank you for sharing….
Great looking book shelves! I know what you mean with space limitations…we live in a small house to.
I had a lot of fun putting this together! Being a perfectionist I just noticed that in my haste to get this to you quickly (thinking I was late) I failed to edit the 3 typos in the second paragraph!! (I have learned my lesson: even if you are short on time and have scanned what you wrote, re- read it one more time-can’t hurt!!) :O
Can’t wait to read more “Show Me the Shelves Sunday” posts! <3
This is a great post – I love looking at where everyone keeps all there book treasures! Oh and I too love Bran Hambric!
I love how she describes her love for each book. Makes you want to run out and get those books.
