Today is the start of what I hope will be a regular feature here at The Overflowing Library called Bookcase Showcase. On Saturday's for the foreseeable future I will be inviting other bloggers to show off their book collection (be it showcased on their bookshelves or otherwise)
I for one am really excited about this because I love looking at other people's book collections and how they arrange them.
So today for the first Bookcase Showcase I am leading by example and showing you my own shelves.
My book collection is housed in our Library which is very much Overflowing. I love our Library because even though it is quite small it is a room with a huge comfy chair and it is full of books. I used to have only one bookcase but I nagged and made Hadley move some of his stuff around so I had more space.
I currently have two YA book cases which look like this ....
The books on these shelves are kept in alphabetical order and are mostly ones I have read (there are the odd few where I haven't read the first in a series so that is on my TBR shelves and the later books are on here).
As well as these shelves I also have a TBR bookcase which is next to my bed. It currently looks like this ...
There is no particular order to these shelves really. Currently they are grouped together by publishing house but I change them around a lot so I don't know how long they'll stay that way.
The final shelf I have is this one ....
This is my favourite one because it has all my review copies on. Currently it doesn't have an awful lot on it at the moment because I made a real effort over half term to get through all my outstanding review titles but the books I do have on there I am really really excited to read!
So that's it - the first bookcase showcase - If you would like your collection to be featured on a future bookcase showcase at The Overflowing Library please email me at kirstylouiseconnor (at) hotmail.com as I would love to feature your shelves. I need a picture (or link to a youtube video) of your collection with a little bit of explanation to go with it.
