This is the problem with having my exercise room in the same room as my books. I started exercising and got distracted. At first I just started straightening. Then I started looking. And then I thought about a post about a guilty pleasure which is snooping in people’s bookshelves when they end up inadvertently in their blog posts. I do. If you have ever had books just laying around or in a bookcase or on an end table I zoom in and peek. So in all fairness, here are some of my bookcases. I have another one upstairs that has about another 30 or 40 books.
This bookcase is local history, my Al Anon books/books on recovery and some books on the Highly Sensitive Person and then some books on grief.
This one has books on women’s history, cemeteries and crows. It also has every book written by Emily Carr and a lot of books written about her. There are books on Lucille Ball. Have I ever mentioned I LOVE her? Just this week I got another one that has every episode of I Love Lucy. It’s in the upstairs bookcase. Actually, it’s on my bed. There is also a mish mash of assorted books in this bookcase.
This shelf has children’s books and most of my fiction. It is all over the place. Some of them are my favourite books ever and some I have never got around to actually reading. Others I stated and didn’t finish. There are a few that I didn’t like at all but because everyone else liked them I keep them for now.
These are books I hate and want to get rid of but because I have an addiction to books I haven’t been able to take them away to the used bookstore. Just last week I pulled one out and decided to keep it. That is a lie. I pulled three out. See? It’s best not to be hasty.
My upstairs bookcase is mostly all my favourite books including books that were gifted to me by some of you! I am in the basement right now and though it’s completely finished it can still have a basement smell so I don’t want my favourite books downstairs. But because of the lack of space some of my favourite books end up downstairs anyway.
So there ya go. Snoop away. Any questions?
