Kirsty has kindly agreed to let me ramble on about my bookcases so that is what I am going to do.
At this moment in time I am waiting to move, so unfortunatly at the moment I have 4 empty bookcases and at least 11 boxes of book waiting to be moved. This is my current home for my books, I think one little box has games/DVD's but the rest are books, even the big boxes
I do however have 2 shelves of books that I purposely kept out, either they are books to review on my blog Much Loved Books, or they are books waiting to be read when I get the time.
On the first picture, the books on the left of the shelf are my review books. These books have either already been released with a second one out soon or are new out next year, so I have a lot of reading to catch up on for new releases.
The books in the middle are books I got from Harper Collins event, or books that are my own and even my signed copy of The scorpio races, the books on the right are books that I need to read, again either my own or books I have won. I do have to admit the tatty destroyed book (A Game of Thrones) on the top is not mine, its my brothers that got wet when he went on holiday, I am horrified at the state of it but since he said i HAD to read it I reluctently borrowed it off him.
Now the second shelf are all my own books waiting to be read, some of them are new to the shelf but still can't wait to get stuck in. These are some that I really want to drop everything to read (i love Rachel vincent so Shifters is a main priority)
All of these books are probably half of the pile of books on my TBR pile that I own, I have easily at least 50 books I want to read bookmarked on my computer, I have another box full of books also waitng to be read with more fantastic authors but sadly I have no time at the moment. If all my books were actually on their bookcases I would have sent a photo of my favourite shelf, it has my David eddings books in it. He was one of the first authors i read just for fun and it was my Nan's books I ended up reading but have since been replaced as they were so well read by everyone the pages were falling out, and also my big masive books for Lord of the rings, with the 3 stories in one, again another one of my Nan's books. I would probably show my shelf with all my signed books on it too (Maureen Johnson, Will Hill, Rachel Caine, Ilona Andrews, Magie Stievfater, Jana Oliver, Jeyn Roberts and Cassandra Clare).
I really dont know what I would do without books, I love reading and probably have far too many books as it is.
In fact here are some photos which I remembered I had of my deshelving in process, not all my books are shown but again this is just a small example.
I miss my organised book shelves, I am still waiting to move and now have even more book added to my own "waiting to be read pile".
