So... I just updated my Goodreads to reflect all the books I want to read, but don‘t own. This means it doesn‘t include the #TBR books I have saved on #Scribd or #Libby, or the ones stacked on my shelf. 🤭

twohectobooks My goodreads tbr has ballooned to over a thousand books at this point, the vast majority of which I don‘t own. It‘s becoming a bit of a problem haha 4d
laur89 @twohectobooks I would never consider that a problem!! It just means more choices 😄 4d

I picked up this puzzle on Independent Bookstore Day; it felt fitting to start piecing it together on National Book Lovers Day. I‘m finding it very helpful that I am familiar with every book and author in the puzzle. I‘ve read 13 of the 23 books illustrated. I think it will be a fun challenge to read the rest. Bonus-the puzzle comes with a frameable print of the finished product. Really had a great night working on this with my dh and daughter.

Balibee146 I've got a different book puzzle part done... Looks fab 👍👍 2w

Considered everyone's suggestions and came up with a new system: a genre/time period combo, considering height in each. Shelf 1 is futuristic. Shelf 2 is fantasy that feels contemporary, and fantasy that feels historical. Shelf 3 is contemporary fic and historical fic. 🤓

I feel pretty good about it atm... but I'll have to sleep on it to know for sure lol And yes, my bookmarks are in a Buffy mug 😊

Thx all!

SW-T Looks nice. Hope it works for you and that you still feel good about it after sleeping on it for a while. As long as you can find what you‘re looking for when you want it! 😊 1mo
ShyBookOwl @SW-T I think I still like it. It make sense to me because, like my brain, it's a bit like organized chaos that only I can rationalize 😂 1mo

Help! -- I've been thinning out my books with the goal of eventually only owning and displaying books I LOVE. I have two bookcases with some keeps on them now (this is one) but I CANNOT decide how to organize them 😖 it's driving me nuts!

How do u all organize shelves??

Tamra It‘s been a couple of years since I adopted this philosophy! 👍🏾 I can‘t speak to organization because I still don‘t have bookshelves yet after moving. 😖 1mo
ShyBookOwl @Tamra oh no! I'm actually moving next month so I was motivated by having a ton of books I just did not want to move with me. I think there are still a bunch I'll get rid of eventually, but I need to buy more favourites first (don't want my shelves too bare lol) 1mo
melissanorr I organize mine by genre, then by series length and then by author. So I have all my urban fantasy together and within that they are grouped by author with the author with the most books first. Of course I haven't even pretended to downsize my collection 🤷‍♀️ 1mo
See All 8 Comments
ShyBookOwl @melissanorr clever! Genre scares me because almost everything overlaps and stresses me out lol I like the series length part though! 1mo
wanderinglynn My system is kind of by how I feel. Classics are all together, as well as poetry, and non-fic (which is then broken down into type). General fiction goes together, then my largest section is paranorm/UF/fantasy/sci-fi, which is mostly by series or author. I also have special sections for some of my fave authors (like the shelf that is all things Neil Gaiman). The my TBRs have their own shelves. 1mo
ShyBookOwl @wanderinglynn I like how personal that is! Thx 1mo

So lovely! Packed with book lore, recommendations, great bookstores and more, this book made me smile, feel grateful, and added quite a few books to my TBR. It also looks lovely on my coffee table! A great gift for a bookish friend, I highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So, this was the coolest thing I've ever had happen when reading a book.

I'm sure that many of you know of the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck in NYC. One of its founders, Bryan, is a friend from high school. His younger sister remains one of my brother's best friends to this day, 30 years later. Not only have Bryan & Doug written a cookbook, they were featured in Bibliophile! 😁

This book is lovely, whimsical, & so much fun to read.

Started this yesterday because my hold came in from the library. I was bummed because they didn't have it on Overdrive, and I'm always nervous bringing library books into the danger zone that is in close vicinity to my young children, but this hardcover book with the built in ribbon bookmark is gorgeous. It is a joy to hold.

Life has been overwhelming lately, and I'm behind in my reading tracking. Will get to May stats eventually.

This book took me forever to read (or so it seemed). I kept stopping to look up anything that interested me...like how far that certain bookstore is from my house. Also, I read this in ebook format which I really do not recommend. The pages and text and illustrations don‘t match up very well. Overall a good book about books/bookstores.

This is a lovely book to curl up with and explore. It has tons of book recommendations to add to your already gigantic TBR list. It also highlights bookstores, libraries and Little Free Libraries around the world, as well as book mobiles 😀 I also love that it highlights people doing good in the book world!

Soubhiville Yes! Such a lovely book! 3mo

#bookfitnesschallenge #grumpycat
I am a day late posting my weekly update (very sick yesterday-didn‘t want to move). I was able to get in 3 gardening sessions and 1 meditation so I hit my goal. I also read or listened to 7 short stories/books (703 pages). I‘ll count that as 2 books out of 6 for my goal. Points: I‘ll edit once I count them up. My favorite was the Grumpy Cat book. #shewillbemissed #sosad

JaclynW Sorry you have been sick! I hope a speedy recovery is on its way! 3mo
jb72 @JaclynW Thanks! I‘m much better now. Maybe it was food poisoning?! Much to do today (chores - boo!). 3mo

Delightful! Simply delightful book about books. This book contains everything you would ever want to know about different genres of books, authors, book stores worldwide, music about books, and even the bookkeepers themselves. The illustrations are very bright and colorful. A perfect book for any bibliophile to add to their library shelves.
I highly recommend it!

The book illustrations were beautiful, but I would have liked more details about some of the more obscure book recommendations included in the book. Some only provided the title, without any description of the book.

Set of 3, they are so cute & perfect for writing reviews or bookish thoughts. And if you haven‘t gotten your hands on the Bibliophile book, you are missing out.
