Thus, I can finally get to a tag awarded to me in September by Liz at Out of Coffee, Out of Mind—The Bookshelf Tag! (Muchas gracias, Liz!) I don’t believe I have done this before, but if you are interested in seeing what my bookshelves looked like a year ago, then you can see the before pics from a link-up with Sunny at A Splash of Ink!
Also, I did this picture-scavenger-hunt style, so with the exception of a few stories and title lists, there will be a lot of pictures but not lots of reading.
The book(s) you answer with must be from your bookshelf.
Include a picture of your bookshelf, if possible, or you could include pictures of your dream shelf.
Tag some folks, apparently.
Describe your bookshelf (or wherever it is you keep your books—it doesn’t actually have to be a shelf!)
What’s the thickest (most amount of pages) book on your shelf?
What’s the thinnest (least amount of pages) book on your shelf?
Is there a book you received as a birthday gift?
What’s the smallest (height and width wise) book on your shelf?
What’s the biggest (height and width wise) book on your shelf?
Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?
Most expensive book?
(Also, the trash can is there for aesthetic purposes. I value Spanish. As well as the sale of old textbooks.)
The last book you read on your shelf?
Of all the books on your shelf, which was the first you read?
Do you have more than one copy of a book?
Do you have the complete series of any book series?
What’s the newest addition to your shelf?
Beloved, by Toni Morrison, but it’s for school, so I haven’t read it yet. Thus, no picture.
What book has been on your shelf FOREVER?
What’s the most recently published book on your shelf?
The oldest book on your shelf (as in, the actual copy is old)?
A book you won?
(Beyond the Red by Ava Jae and Almost Super by Marion Jensen)
A book you’d hate to let out of your sight (aka a book you’d never let someone borrow)?
I don’t think there is one, within reasonable bounds. You have to live within a few miles of me to be allowed to borrow.
Most beat up book?
Most pristine book?
A book from your childhood?
A book that’s not actually your book?
A book with a special/different cover (e.g. leather bound, soft fuzzy cover etc.)?
I have none, I believe.
A book that is your favorite color?
A book that’s been on your shelf the longest that you STILL haven’t read?
Books I haven’t read don’t go on my shelves.
Any signed books?
I am not actually a photographer so if you are and my skills offended your eyes… whelp. I had fun playing scavenger hunt in my room on a snow day.
Alyssa, Bailey, Victoria: I am curious about your shelves. Consider yourselves tagged. And if you are not among the tagged but want to display your shelves for all to see, then go for it. I’d love to see yours, too.
