The Bookshelf Tag:
*DISCLAIMER I REORGANIZED MY BOOKSHELF AFTER DOING THIS BLOG AND THAT IS WHAT THE PICTURE IS BECAUSE I AM PROUD OF MY NEW SHELF. BUT THE CONTENTS ARE OF THE OLD SHELF SO JUST IGNORE EVERYTHING I SAY ABOUT TOP THREE SHELVES OR PLACEMENT OF MY BOOKS BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY IT CHANGED.
Describe your bookshelf (or wherever it is you keep your books-it doesn’t actually have to be a shelf!) and where you got it from:
My book shelf is white, tall, and has 5 shelves. I got it for Christmas so the exact location of the book shelf is lost on me but I am pretty sure my parents got it from Walmart.
Do you have any special or different way of organizing your books?
On my very top shelf I have my Harry Potter collection and a few of my favorite books. My next shelf has my hardcovers and then the next shelf my paperback. The bottom two shelves are all my other books I have had since childhood.
What’s the thickest (most amount of pages) book on your shelf?
Phew, I dont know. either a Harry Potter book by the queen J.K Rowling or Queen of Shadows by another queen, Sarah J. Maas.
What’s the thinnest (least amount of pages) book on your shelf?
Maybe Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur or House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros.
Is there a book you received as a birthday gift?
Recently for my birthday my best friend Maggie bought me her favorite book, The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I am currently reading this book.
What’s the smallest (height and width wise) book on your shelf?
The book is my small version of To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
What’s the biggest (height and width wise) book on your shelf?
The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a J.K Rowling).
Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?
Refer to the birthday book question.
Most expensive book?
I have two (almost three) $300 books. They are collectors edition of, wait for it, Harry Potter books. They are the illustrated version but huge and has gold etching or whatever you call it on the cover. They are my prized possessions. I am getting the third one for Christmas. I hope they finish up the series because I would love to have the entire collection of these books.
The last book you read on your shelf?
I am currently reading the Secret Life of Bees. The last book I finished though was Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman.
Of all the books on your shelf, which was the first you read?
I first read my Harry Potter book if we are counting my top three shelves. My bottom shelves I couldn’t tell you. I have had those books as long as I can remember.
Do you have more than one copy of a book?
I just bought my second copy of TKAM but I will be getting rid of one of the copies because it is super tiny and the other one fits with my Go Set a Watchmen. I have a few extra copies of the Harry Potter books and the Twilight series. I may have more than that but those are the ones I can see from my desk position.
Do you have the complete series of any book series?
Harry Potter, Twilight, Beautiful Creatures, Doon, Fablehaven, Passenger*, Illuminae*, just to name a few.
*I have every book that is out so far.
What’s the newest addition to your shelf?
My newest addition is my new To Kill a Mockingbird and two other books I bought the other day from Barnes and Nobles, Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice.
What book has been on your shelf FOREVER?
Well any of the books on my bottom two shelves but probably my Harry Potter books.
What’s the most recently published book on your shelf?
I want to say Wayfarer but at this point I have no clue.
The oldest book on your shelf (as in, the actual copy is old)?
Maybe my Jane Eyre copy because it is ancient.
A book you won?
I aint that lucky.
A book you’d hate to let out of your sight (aka a book you never let someone borrow)?
I am only sort of joking. The ones I wouldn’t let out of site is probably my Harry Potter books.
Most beat up book?
I have a Canterwood Crest book on the bottom shelf. It was originally a library book but I took it to a horse show and it was raining and well…that was not a very good idea.
Most pristine book?
All the books I haven’t read like Wayfarer and The Diabolic. Also most Harry Potter books I got are good. I have one that is ripped in the corner.
A book from your childhood?
Any flipping book on my bottom shelf.
A book that’s not actually your book?
A book with a special/different cover (e.g. leather bound, soft fuzzy cover etc.)?
MY COLLECTORS EDITION OF HARRY POTTER!!!!!
A book that is your favorite color?
Shades of Doon is blue. It isn’t actually my favorite shade of blue but it is blue.
Book that’s been on your shelf the longest that you STILL haven’t read?
Many books but I do not know the longest.
Any signed books?
