I had my first day back at work today, and I feel like a #PoorMisguidedFool - when I didn‘t have a job, all I wanted to do was work. Now that I have a job, all I want to do is stay home and read 😅 At least I have a lot of #shelfies in my camera roll that I can look at when work feels too tough.

And yes, this post is just an excuse to whine a bit and post a pic of my messy shelves 😂


arlenefinnigan Yeah, work is rubbish, but it means more money to buy books 😉 3mo
candority Your shelves are so beautiful! 😍 3mo
TrishB Yep, all of us 😁 3mo

Cinfhen Happy photo!!!!!! 3mo
Susannah I know just how you feel. Isn‘t it the worst that when we‘re not working, we also can‘t relax because we feel like we need to be working? 🤦‍♀️ 3mo
erzascarletbookgasm Beautiful shelves! 3mo
Centique That photo looks like heaven to me! #shelfgoals 3mo

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! 🎉 As a child I was both fascinated and creeped out by Clark, the thing they found in the park in dark. 😮 Am I the only one?

ephemeralwaltz There are some twisted scenes and creatures in his books...😂😂 2y
jmtrivera #shelfgoals for my daughter! 2y
Tamra @jmtrivera I picked up nearly all of these at second hand stores for so little $. Never too soon to start collecting! 2y
jmtrivera @Tamra Good tip, thanks! My dad has sent her a bunch because he remembered which ones I loved as a kid, and I'd like to continue what he started. 2y

Hahaha!! Which one are you??? Mine is more like the right, tho there is a method to the madness 😝!

Jess7 I‘m on the left. My closet is truly organized according to ROYGBIV, but my books are organized more by category and size and pretty colors I like next to each other. For example: all of my botm books are together, then the rest are organized by genre :-) 2y
AllenTStClair More right than left. 😂 2y
ReviewsbytheMrs Left but sometimes it gets out of hand and begins to look like the right, but even still I know exactly where every book is 💜 2y

KrystleTheBookSlayer Definitely the right! Sometimes I will organize it and it'll looks nice, but soon enough it will look like the right side again. 2y
Cortg Left! Even at work I like to line my YA section all nice and pretty. 2y
Heidilatae Living room is left.. bedroom is right 2y
tournevis Left, my house library. Right, my office library. 2y
laurenbescoby I try for left but it always ends up right 😂 2y
Carolyn11215 Totally the one on the right. My partner‘s shelves on the other hand...definitely look like the one on the left. 2y
VanChocStrawberry Mine look like the ones on the right. My husband‘s look even worse! @ChrisSmithIndy 2y
bentchbites Right! I try so hard to keep it neat and tidy but hahahaha 2y
Cityofamber I try for the left, but it ends up being the right between adding books from my TBR once I read them and taking pictures, ect 😂 2y
MargoCatts Left. 100%. It bugs me when books I want to put together topically don‘t fit their spot. Of course, I‘m in a new house without enough shelves so...is there an option that includes boxes? 🤦🏼‍♀️ 2y
Phlamboyant I am the left immediately after moving and the right the rest of the time. 2y
BookwormM Definitely a right 🤣🤣 2y
Abby-J My books are shelved categorically, but the usually look more like the ones on the right. 2y
quirkyreader19 My starts out like the left, but eventually morphs into the shelf on the right;) 2y
Q84 The right! But like you said a method to the madness 2y
tonyahoswalt Right now, the right. But hopefully it will eventually be like the left! 2y
MaiyaPapaiya I would like to have my books look like the left but looking at how I have them organized and placed...I am most definitely the right 😂 2y
CMB The left....the left...the left!!! I‘m soooooo sequential!!! I want to organize the right side...🤷🏻‍♀️😂 2y
minkyb I have one neat and several messy and even more without a shelf! 2y
TamAnder Most definitely the one on the right. The left is #shelfgoals 2y
Jennifer3 I am like @minkyb! 2y
PSreads73 I‘ve really become more of a reader as of late. My collection is more like the left side as of now. That may change as I run out of space. 2y
PictureandBook Left when we have visitors right when I‘ve gotten a good long weekend of reading 2y

DrexEdit Awesome! 3y
raelaschoenherr Looks awesome! 3y
Christinak So jealous! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @8little_paws That was my brother's job, he's very competent with these things, so mostly I just stayed out of his way until the construction part was done. 👍. Then I came in and decorated👍👍 (edited) 3y
Shortstack Brilliant! I need to sort my books out soonish. 😬😬😬 3y
ValkyrieAndHerBooks Fantastic! I'm so jealous! I'm so cramped for space that the majority of my books are boxed and stored! *sigh* Someday I will have entire rooms dedicated to books! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Shortstack I took two bags to the library for the library sale already. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @ValkyrieAndHerBooks I was thrilled with a corner of a room! 3y
ValkyrieAndHerBooks Lol, truthfully, I would too! At this point, I have one bookcase with five 3 foot long shelves, I'd settle for any more space! But a girl can dream! 3y
moranadatter Your shelves look amazing! What a great way to start 2017! 3y
courtney 😧😧😧 so jealous! This looks amazing! 3y
DivineDiana Green with envy! Happy for you! 👏🏻📚👏🏻 3y

He did admit after seeing it with books on it, that it looked better than he thought it would. I was overjoyed!! 3y
Shortstack @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I probably need to sell more. 😬😬 3y
CherylDeFranceschi 👏👏👏📚Lively! 3y
Christy2318 Amazing! 3y
LauraBrook Whoa, this is amazing! So lovely. And you have space for more - I'm v impressed! #shelfgoals (edited) 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @LauraBrook Not much, I have those fabric storage cubes on order for that bottom row. Originally I intended to put out of season stuff there... but honestly it's probably going to be other media storage.... Magazines, craft books, comics, newspapers...all that other stuff I seem to collect. 3y
ralexist What system did you use? I've been looking to trade out my IKEA bookcases for something like this. It looks awesome! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @ralexist Bought the main rails, adjustable shelf holders, and shelves all at Hone Depot. 3y
DebinHawaii It looks amazing! 📚📚❤️ 3y
annkuch13 Gorgeous!!💜 3y
LeahBergen Wow!!! 😍 3y
BethFishReads Nice! 3y
NatalieR I love it! Great job! ❤️ 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage All kinds of gorgeous! 3y
RadicalReader @Riveted_Reader_Melissa adjustable shelves are definitely a must have for an expanding book library. I took one look at this and immediately wondered why aren't there more passionate book readers like you out there. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @RadicalReader Thank you! I think you've found the place where we congregate now...Litsy, the secret hangout of passionate book readers! 3y
RadicalReader @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I knew it existed. I love this website seriously don't know how I lived without it. You're such a sweet person a rarity it seems now days on social media when so many people get consumed by the followers and not the content being shared. This is like the Room of Requirement for us lol 3y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @RadicalReader Yes it is! That's a great way to explain it. I've honestly found everyone here very open to conversations about every topic, and in the world of social media...that is a rarity and a gem to be treasured. 3y
RadicalReader @Riveted_Reader_Melissa sorry for the Harry Potter reference been recently watching all the Harry Potter films actually lol and definitely retained some intricate parts of information from them. Loved the part one of the Harry Potter and the deathly hallows where you see 7 Daniel Radcliffe change into all the same clothing I died laughing seeing him wearing a bra 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @RadicalReader Never apologize for a Potter reference, it's a great series (of books and movies). And yes, that was a hilarious scene. I bet they had fun filming it. 3y
