My Bookshelves

I saw this great link-up on Modern Mrs. Darcy. If you haven't stumbled on this blog yet and you are a reader, I would recommend you go and get to know Anne. She's a sweetheart and cute as can be.

Anyway, she is doing a link-up of other peoples bookshelves. It can be really fascinating what others are reading, and it is a great way to get some good ideas about what to read next. 

I have several bookshelves in my house and often have a stack of books on the coffee table.  I also have many books on my Kindle.  Often when I hear about a book I want to read I download the sample on my Kindle.  Then I don't forget about it and I don't have to buy until I am ready to read it.

You might be able to tell by the books that these first several pictures are my bookshelf.

These are a couple stacks that I pulled out lately to read.

 And then these are the ones I have loaded on my Kindle:

 The books on this bookshelf are my husbands, but the bookshelf is mine.  It was always in our house growing up and I love it.  It also fits his small paperbacks really well.  He mostly reads soldier books or westerns.

This one is mostly my husbands hardcover books, but some Life "Year in Pictures" books we have collected.

 And this last one is a catch all of miscellaneous books, but includes a lot of the kids favorite books that I didn't want to get rid of.

I hope you found something you like, and I can't wait to see all the other linkers' bookshelves.

  1. WOW -- what a collection! Are you sure this isn't actually a bookstore? :-)

    I love your Complete Works of Jane Austen. Have you ever seen the movie The Jane Austen Book Club? The only male member of the club -- a newcomer to Austen's works -- arrives at the first meeting, hauls the Complete Works out of his backpack, and says, "So do we read these in order?" That's what your big tome made me think of. And I love all your hardcover Harry Potters.

    1. Thanks so much, Jeannie! The bookshelves are scattered throughout the house so it's too cramped in any one room. :)

  2. I loved seeing all of these ... but WOW, it's our Kindle collections that look eerily similar!

    Also, I love your Dr. Seuss collection. You have tons of great series in here, but that's the one that made me grin.

    Thanks for sharing your shelves with us!

    1. My theory on the Kindle would be that I probably loaded several of them on your recommendation! :) My kids and I love our Dr. Seuss, some of their favorites are still stuck in my head (and they are 15 and 20 years old)!!
      I loved this link-up! Thanks for doing it!

  3. What a lovely collection! I see some favorites on your shelves (Phillipa Gregory, Dickens, Diana Gabaldon, John Green), and I see some new titles that I need to add to my GoodReads list! Thank you for sharing your awesome collection!


Ooohhh....So happy you are commenting!
