Hello all! Today’s a very chill post, cos I’m feeling in a chill mood, hope you’re all having a chill Sunday 😉
As I’ve mentioned before, most of my books are in boxes/storage. Recently though I’ve had to rearrange some things and I’ve managed to commandeer two and a half shelves for my lovely books! Anyway, people love ogling books and bookshelf tours are all the rage, so I thought I’d share them, cos, well they’re pretty.
Most of these are books I had/acquired at uni and have been with me through an awful lot- which is why I think it’s kind of special that these are the books I get to show to you today (don’t expect any childhood books though, they’re all in storage- *sob* my poor HPs). And even though there are a couple on these shelves that I don’t like (*cough* Lolita *cough cough*), I wouldn’t part with them for anything.
The first shelf kicks off the show with my pretty splendid fairy tale collection, then for purely logical reasons/cos I felt like it there’s gothic literature, Scottish-literature-that’s-somehow-not-gothic, a part I like to call “America Fuck Yeah!” and after that the remainder’s supposed to be English- only you can probably see my beloved To Kill A Mockingbird chilling next to Shakespeare- whatever, if I’d put it somewhere else, looking at the height difference would have killed me.
Okay the first book on this shelf was a gift and I’ve not read it- it does look great- but I don’t tend to read author biographies- I’ll get to it one day STOP GUILT TRIPPING ME BRAIN! Moving on, we’ve got good ol’ Norton Theory, next to some sheer awesomeness in the way of Shakespeare, Austen, Chaucer (incidentally you can hurt your back carrying those to uni- word to the wise, download backups on your kindle!). Annnd after that’s my very modest classics collection, followed by some poetry. I definitely want to bring attention to my *gorgeous* copy of Blake at the end- it’s the Tate edition, very artistic and really compact! (great for travelling, just sayin’)
I also have these on another shelf cos WHERE DOES ONE PUT KAFKA?
JK! (mostly) And I also wanted to show off my lovely Greek Vases book- in case you didn’t know how cool I was 😉
And that’s all for now- hope you enjoyed the sexy book pics and my ramblings 😉
