Show Off Your Shelf!

I found this meme over on I Read That Once and as we all like a good nose I thought I'd take a few snaps of my bookshelves... The first is a cut and paste montage as I can't easily get them in one photo without moving furniture and no one wants that!

They're a bit disorganised and I tend to shove all sorts of stuff on them for safe keeping. In addition to those shelved, I have little piles of books all over the flat. Every now and then I'll gather them up and sort out the shelves. As you might be able to tell, it's been a while since I've done that.

Those are the main bookcases but I also have two more, one a random shelving unit that holds Terry Pratchetts and Kelley Armstrongs (along with bills and random crap) and another in the hallway which usually has some of my review books there where I can grab them on the way out. The cookbooks are also here as it's nearer the kitchen. As the newest bookcase it still has space on it and most my new books should really go there instead of in nomadic piles...

Last two photos are a bit rubbish, sorry, but you get the idea!


  1. And that's not even all of them, is it? :)

    Quite liking the montage-style photo, very lo-fi cool.

  2. Gorgeous shelves. I love the montage photo as well. It's probably something I should have done. My bookshelf was too tall to be included in the entire photo, lol

  3. I have 2 bookcases double stacked and 5 shelves so full i am sure they will fall on me one day - then there is my book fort i am slowly building from piles ;)

  4. Nice shelves! Is it just me, or is everyone trying to zoom in close and read the spines? ;-)

  5. Hello,
    I found you on Blogaholic Social Network, and am now a new follower via GFC. I would need more than one page to show my bookshelves. I have had to put some in storage *gasp* when we needed to convert one of our bedrooms into a nursery 2 years ago. I will be back to read more of your blog.

    Fellow bookworm,
