Shelfies

Over at Compuserve we've had a thread of 'shelfies' going. It's been fun (if a little jealousy inducing) to see everyone's bookshelves. It's a great way to get to know virtual friends, make them feel less virtual and more actual. While I actually have 8 bookshelves in my house here's a look at two of them. 



Yes, I did cut out everything surround the shelf.  I didn't want you to be disturbed at the clutter or amazed (disturbed) by all our Star Wars memorabilia. Cause that's a whole other post.

So, post your own shelfie and put a link in the comments.  I'd love to see your shelves.

  1. I'd have to cut out the clutter around mine, though I'm on a massive decluttering time. Your bookshelves look awesome.

  3. I didn't participate because I've packed all our novels to make the move easier. Never thought the house wouldn't sell. Dang. I guess when I finally do open the box, it'll be like Christmas.

  5. My bookshelves became nick nack collectors. All my old books are in the garage in plastic totes. If I want to read something, just grab it on the way to the deep freeze.

    1. Nothing better than a little food with your books. I used to keep books in an old dresser. Perfect place to store them.

  8. Ha, I love it. It's always fun checking out other people's bookshelves. I have a whole wall full of books cluttering shelves. It's wonderful. But I was running out of room. Thank goodness for the kindle otherwise the whole house would be chock full by now ;)

  9. WHAT a FUN HOP!!!!

    I LOVE bookshelves and have many in my home, but not nearly enough to hold all my books. I even have one dedicated to my blogger buddies books!

  10. What a cool idea! (I like the concept of a shelfie much better than a selfie...)

    We have so many books and shelves laden with them around here, I should be ashamed of myself. But I'm not.

    1. Never be ashamed of books or book shelves! Unless there aren't enough books on them, of course. :) The only time I've ever taken a selfie was when I needed a picture for the blog.

  11. I wish I could. My shelves are in storage, along with all but about 10 books. Yes, it's been difficult. Yes, I'm desperately missing my lovelies. We'll be in the new house soon...

  12. Ohhh this is too cute. And you're right, a wonderful way to get to know each other a bit more. My boyfriend and I just moved in together and before then, I loved having more shelf space. But alas, he's taken up the other half...I do appreciate all the art books however. (He's an artist).

    1. Adding books to your collection is always a bonus. Sharing the bookshelves can be a test in any relationship. The good thing is if you can survive that, you can survive anything! Good luck!

  13. What a fun idea! I'll have to do this for sure :) Well, if I can make mine look presentable, haha! They're triple parked in places right now!

    1. Many of my shelves are double stacked with more books slid in on top or shoved in wherever. That's what makes them interesting.

  14. Oh my shelfies are embarrassing...I've run out of space on most of them, so I've stacked books in front and on top and behind and...and I look like a book freak, LOL.

  15. My bookshelf isn't actually a bookshelf, but a giant buffet that I've treated as a bookshelf. Shelfies...I like that concept!
