I was tagged by Sarah @ The Reading Petal to do the Bookshelf Tag. This is going to be a fun one! I love showcasing my collection of books. There’s quite a lot of them.
Describe your bookshelf (or wherever it is you keep your books-it doesn’t actually have to be a shelf!) and where you got it from.
These are my lovely bookshelves. It’s looking like I need another one though. Sorry for the bad quality in advance. They’re right next to my sliding door so the sun is always on them.
I got one from Target (before they closed and left Canada) and the other from Wal-Mart. Turns out they’re the same shelf so it worked out nicely.
Do you have a special or different way of organizing your books?
Here’s a nice close up. I think every shelf is mostly organized differently. These one are my author spotlight kind of shelves. The authors that have more than one series. The top is Kelley Armstrong and Patricia Briggs. The second is Richelle Mead and Cassandra Clare.
What is the thickest/biggest book on your shelf?
This is my huge Harry Potter book. It’s all about how they made the movies so it’s got a lot of pages and it’s really heavy.
And the thinnest?
Basically any graphic novel. These are my Saga ones.
Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?
Nope! I don’t have many friends who read I guess.
Most expensive book.
Probably that same Harry Potter book. I try to buy most of my books on sale.
The last book you read on your shelf.
I had to read it as soon as it came out of course.
Do you have more than one copy of a book?
I have 2 copies of the first and third Harry Potter books. I’m trying to get the whole series in that Bloomsbury edition because my other ones are pretty well used.
Do you have the complete series of any book series?
A lot of them. These are my complete trilogies though!
What is the most recently published book on your shelf?
Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes. Just got released along with Deception by Kelley Armstrong.
The oldest book on your shelf.
If I had to guess I’d say these two.
A book you’ve won.
I recently won this book on a Facebook giveaway! It’s the first book I’ve won!
A book you’d hate to let out of your sight (aka a book you’d never let someone borrow).
All of them?
Most beat up book.
My poor Harry Potter books. 🙁
Most pristine book.
All the rest haha
A book from your childhood.
Harry Potter of course.
A book that is not actually your book.
All my books are mine 🙂
A book with a special/different cover (e.g. leather bound, soft fuzzy cover etc.).
I have none 🙁 I wish I did though.
A book that is your favourite colour.
Also have none 🙁 My favourite colour is coral and I don’t have many pink books.
A book that has been on your shelf the longest that you STILL haven’t read.
I’ve had this forever. I need to read it!
Any signed books?
Just one! Of Poseidon by Anna Banks.
