Bookshelves – or other things as well? That’s the question for this week’s Book Blogger Hop, which you can find at the Coffee Addicted writer. It’s a godsend for anyone hunting for inspiration for a blog post, any weekend throughout the year!
Do your bookshelves have books ONLY or do you also have bookish items on the shelves?
As often with me, it’s a yes and no.
I have four main bookshelves. Two tall ones are stuffed with books, although as I don’t have enough space for pictures and knickknacks, some of them end up there, too. The low one with cupboards underneath contains my travel and nature reference books (field guides etc). In the cupboard parts there are maps, so I suppose those are bookish things rather than books. There’s something about having a whole load of old Lonely Planet guides on your shelf, most of which have been well used, but some were bought when planning my last big trip… and they are unlikely to get used, I’m afraid.
The last one, the messy one, has most of the books I own that are on my TBR; together with those I’ve read and would be happy to give away as a prize. There are also DVDs I haven’t watched or would like to give to someone who’d like them. And also useful carrier bags with books in them… In fact, these shelves hold things I haven’t got around to putting away in a permanent place as well.
I hope you like an insight into my messy household!
What do you have on your bookshelves? Cameras? Old engine parts? Partially constructed spaceships?
