I wasn’t tagged to do this but wanted to have a go as it looked fun. I got this tag from the Bionic Bookworms awesome blog. So here we go…
HOW MANY BOOKSHELVES DO YOU HAVE?
I have 2. The small wooden one in my bedroom was hand-made by my Grandad’s brother. I inherited the bookcase when my grandad passed away. It is dark brown and 3 shelves. I also have a large grey bookcase in the garage which I will use when I move into my own place.
HOW MANY BOOKS ARE ON YOUR BOOKSHELVES? OR HOW MANY BOOKS DO YOU HAVE?
I would say about 100
HOW DO YOU ORGANISE YOUR BOOKS?
Kind of in genre order. But my bookcase is so small I have to put books I have read behind in genre order and then I have a pile of unread books.
WHAT IS THE OLDEST BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
I have some really old books that my Grandad gave me. I haven’t read them as they are more of a keepsake.
WHAT IS THE NEWEST BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
WHAT IS THE LONGEST BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
Still not finished it… I’m 249 / 863 pages…
WHAT IS THE SHORTEST BOOK YOU OWN?
A William Blake poetry book.
WHAT IS THE PREDOMINANT GENRE ON YOUR SHELF?
It’s a real mixture really, I have a lot of classics and magical/fantasy books.
HAVE YOU DONE A BOOKSHELF TOUR?
No I have no idea what it is…. Can anyone tell me please?
GO ON A RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR AND TALK ABOUT THE BOOK THAT CORRESPONDS WITH THAT NUMBER
DO YOU HAVE FAN MERCHANDISE OR ANY OTHER DECORATIONS ON YOUR BOOKSHELF?
On the top of the bookcase I have a photo of myself and my baby niece, a Japanese poster, ornaments from when I went travelling and a vintage jug I bought recently. On the second shelf a china rabbit that was my great nan’s, a photo of myself and my boyfriend and an owl mug.
SHOW US YOUR BOOKSHELF!
This is a snippet of my bookshelf. It is currently messy, not in any order and I can’t fit all my books on it. But when I move out and use the bigger bookcase… that will change!
I really enjoyed doing this tag and hope you have got a good insight as to how I organise my bookshelf. I won’t tag anyone but if you want to take part then do so 🙂 Thanks for reading Katie x
