Organizing my bookshelves took a little longer than I planned. I ended up ordering a fourth bookcase because I liked them so much and I wanted to make sure I had plenty of room for future book purchases. 😆
I really love how they turned out! I‘m so happy that all four bookcases fit along one wall. I love seeing them all lined up! Now I‘m going to spend the next few minutes at my desk to stare at them. 📚📚
My new bookcases arrived yesterday and I spent most of the afternoon assembling them. Now they‘re ready for books! I‘ve been unpacking moving boxes all week and I‘m excited to finally get my books unpacked. Hopefully by the end of a day I‘ll have an “after” pic of my shelves loaded with books. 😀 📚
After having two overflowing boxes of books next to my recliner in the living room, for a really long time, I decided to get this small bookcase. I think it looks way better than an end table and it‘s definitely less expensive and can hold more 😏. So...I‘m thinking of getting another one for the other end of our big couch. We have so many books just everywhere that I would probably fill it up as soon as I put it together. #shelfie
All right everybody, it's time for the super mega ultra challenge for the month of May! And we've got a fantastic game for you!
Simply watch the video and guess how many books I have on my shelves. Think of it like the jelly beans in the jar game. The one that guesses closest to the actual number wins the grand prize!!!! 💗📦💗

Hooray, my first #shelfie!!! As of last night, I finally have bookshelves in my room for the first time in approximately a million years! I know it might sound crazy to other book nerds that I‘ve gone so long without them, but I used to move every few years and I just got used to hauling my books around in giant plastic bins. It‘s so nice being able to see my books on display and not have to dig through bins in my closet anymore! More below...👇
#neverever will I have adequate shelf space. 😆 I‘ve taken to just piling books on the floor in my husband‘s office/den. Luckily he‘s a good sport. #anglophileapril
Oh, and there are more hidden away in his entertainment stand to the right. 🤣🤣🤣
Organized my #BOTM books by author and officially only have room for one more in this current setup. 😭 My husband is also pushing for this to hold more books, so the rest is a work in progress. I love the look of the squares, but it sure makes it hard to attractively fill them with books because there‘s always the inevitable empty space where no book will fit. #shelfie
This was way more stressful for me than it should have been. I have to keep reminding myself that this is not a list of my favorite authors, right? Right. There are still several more genres that I like to read that are not represented here. @britt_brooke thanks for sharing!
Oh my sweet baby Jesus, who has the building plans for this?! 😍
I randomly decided to reorganize my books at 1am (as you do). I usually sort by height, and now it‘s sectioned by author. Don‘t quite know how I feel about it yet. Thoughts? How do you arrange your books?
I grew up in a house full of books with a family that made frequent trips to the library. For some reason, I never really thought to buy my own. Any trip to the bookstore was always to add to our collection of schoolbooks (I was homeschooled.) So, to get to start my own collection, and have a bookcase that is all my own...I am just so excited and loving it! All that to say-look at the pretty new lights I just put up! 😍#storytime #mybooks #inlove
It is a grey and cold day in Denmark, I‘m feeling meh and not in a reading mood. But at least I have pretty flowers, pretty books, and leftover brownie in the fridge.
So here‘s a pic of the pretty, and then we won‘t talk about I‘m still sitting in my pj‘s and watching old seasons of Drag Race 🤫
Bookish Question : Counting all the books currently in your home , including shelves, nightstands , boxes , kindle books, audiobooks. Estimate how long you think it‘d take you to complete every book currently owned by you in any form , without purchasing another book ? Just curious. I‘d have to ponder this one myself. It‘d depend on whether I had one of my slumps or could just burn through them continually. I‘d guess 2 years. 📚
💌 Bookish Mail! New enamel pins depicting two of my favorites: Infinite Jest and Slaughterhouse-Five + this beautiful “Novels of the 1900s” mug. I love Jane Mount‘s creations! 💚💚💚

All three. Audio (from the library) in the car, ebooks and paperbacks elsewhere (I seldom buy hardcovers unless they're on the remainder table). I buy mostly ebooks,nowadays, but I still prefer paperbacks.
The ideal bookshelf of book cover designer Coralie Bickford-Smith. In her essay she speaks of the thrill she gets repackaging classic books. Of Dracula she says she used the pattern of garlic flowers noting that the heroine wears them to stop Dracula and Coralie used them to cover the book to wreath it and keep the evil in. This is such a great book to dive in and out of- who isn‘t interested in other people‘s bookshelves?📚💖
Ok bibliophiles have you heard of this delicious eye candy of a book? Always wondered what Atul Gawande or David Sedaris would have on their ideal shelves? Here is the deliciously illustrated answer with essay. This is Dr. Gawande‘s shelf. I‘ll post more as I go along but this is a book lover‘s dream- book tube or bookstagram before technology!
Today I got a new bookshelf for my paperbacks. I'm very happy. Now every book has a place. #shelfie
That “Want to Read” shelf is the number of books I own but have not read. The fiancé said today he will go to the book store with me & buy me a book when that number gets under 100. He first guessed I owned 89 books that hadn‘t been read yet. ??♀️ Guess I better get to reading!
1. No! 😩 I will eventually get them organized and unpack the books I still have in boxes from my April move.
2. Of course! I‘m thinking when I get my bookshelves organized that I will have a shelf for the books I plan on reading in the near future and then one bookcase for books I have read. But I haven‘t decided how I want to organize my books yet! 😔
This #shelfie was brought to you by the generous ladies who continue to host #Booked2018 I used my Amazon credit towards a second shelf which thankfully has gotten many of my new books off the floor 😅
I put it together a few days ago and have already filled it up, and mostly with signed editions! I‘m a happy bookworm. 💕
I ❤️ these pins made by Jane Mount over at Ideal Bookshelf. I could wear them all! At the moment she‘s offering buy 4 get 1 free....
🔹Burnt orange. Emerald greens. Tie-dye.
🔹Coffee, Pepsi, chocolate milk. Whisky Sour.
🔹Bookshelves...big, small, it doesn't matter I'm immediately attracted. Also, book related candles.
I tag anyone who wants to play along. ❤️
Thanks for the tag @vivastory
Shelfies is one of my favorite photo prompts requesting folks to show their bookcases/bookshelves or any way that they store their collected books. I had such a fun time yesterday looking at all of the photos from #ReadingResolutions prompt for Shelfie Saturday. I was on Litsy throughout the entire day waiting for the next shelfie post. Way to go Littens!👇🏽
Packages will be mailed tomorrow... Expect 'em Tuesday or Wednesday!

I saw this on someone's Tbr here on Litsy.. but I can't remember who! I'm getting rid of it... do you want it?
I suppose w an open ended question like that, I should say, first person who had it on their tbr and says so gets it.
The top left picture is my classroom shelfie. The two pictures on the bottom are my downstairs library, while the picture on the top right is what is happening in our upstairs guest room. I‘m contemplating adding more shelves in there! I mean, it‘s only polite to offer your guests a nice reading selection, right? 😜
