Anne over at Modern Mrs. Darcy is doing a little blog link-up today asking us all to share what our bookshelves look like.
If you follow me on Twitter you may have noticed that about 3 weeks ago we had a little catastrophe over here. I rearranged my room and my bookshelf literally fell over and split in half! The nerve!
I am not in a position to immediately replace it, but needed some kind of storage more than piles on the floor. So I decided to make do with the pieces.
Let's take a look!
Moving from left to right we have:
Top shelf: a stack of all my Bible study workbooks from the last couple of years; all of my journals from 2004-present (I'm re-reading them); some Bibles, The Federalist Papers, and a book of quotations.
Middle shelf back row (not in view): the books I've started but not finished over the past few months (i.e., next up on the to-read list); the only thing I collect - biographies/memoirs of American Presidents & First Ladies; fiction that I've already read.
Middle shelf front row (in view): currently reading or will be reading next (Brene Brown's works, American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House); Paris in Color; classics that didn't fit anyplace else & my French Bible.
Bottom shelf: more fiction, mostly series. Anne of Green Gables, some Lori Wick, and the Christy Miller & friends series (a favorite from high school).
The first shelf maintained its structural integrity in the fall. The second did not and is barely hanging on.
Top shelf: these books are stacked two rows deep. These are all the books I haven't read yet, stacked alphabetically by title. I know. It's a problem.
Bottom shelf: law school case books, reference books (French dictionaries); yearbooks from high school & college; and a couple binders of legal research.
I do have to confess that this isn't all. I have four boxes of books still in storage in California because they wouldn't fit in my car when I moved here.
What's on your bookshelf?
