In just a week, I will start packing up my books for a long-distance move. While struggling with the decision of which books might be okay to leave behind at my parent’s, I decided that I should take some photos of the way my bookcase looks today. (I have a number of photos of my bookcase over the years…I’m nostalgic for that sort of thing.) I loved Kate’s tour of her bookshelves and thought now would be perfect timing for me to do the same.
And that’s my bookcase! I do store some books on a shelf out in the hallway. They are books that I don’t love as much as these 😛 But the majority of my books are featured in these photos. I try to only buy books that I know will be lasting favourites, or books that I want to support financially.
Do you have a bookcase or two or seven? Do you have a particular system for organizing your shelves?
Wow, where did July go? It turned out to be a lot busier than I anticipate! But in mostly good ways. I went to my lake for the first week of July. I did a pretty good job of blogging ahead and reading while I was out there. Then I went camping again, but this time on a four day trip with my best friend. Starting back at my old job and Fringing also ate a lot of my time. These are all good things, but the one event that made me use ‘mostly’ instead of ‘all’ up there is that my mom broke her arm 🙁 Since I am more available than my dad and sister (who both work full time), I’ve been helping her out and taking her on excursions, haha. Between camping + work + Fringe + Mom, my blogging took a hit in July, but I don’t mind much because these are all things I want to enjoy before I move.
