SHOW ME THE SHELVES SUNDAY!


Welcome to my new feature Show Me The Shelves!  This feature was inspired by Book Chick City!  Each Sunday I will feature a fellow blogger and their collection to showcase on my blog.  So sit back, enjoy the pictures that will cause you to drool, and know that you are not alone in hoarding your books!


Hey everyone! Amy asked if I wanted to share my bookshelves on her new feature. I thought why not, I had be meaning to do this post on my blog for a while but kept putting it off.  So here they are.

The first picture is one of my main bookcase. As you can see I collect more than just books. I'm a child of the 80's and it shows when you walk into my bedroom.  Now I don't keep every book I read or I wouldn't have any room at all. This bookcase is mainly paperbacks. For the most part each shelf is organized alphabetically by author.  The fourth shelf down holds some of my TBR Books. These don't fit on my TBR shelf.





This is my other main bookcase. Both the first one and this one are located in my room. These
books are mostly organized by author too.  The books are The Dark-Hunters series, Trade Paperbacks, Hardcovers and Graphic Novels/Manga.





Bookcase number 3 is located out in my hallway. This is my newest bookcase.  I got this one for review from CSN Stores.  Again organized by Author. It holds Young Adult books and some more paperbacks.





My TBR shelf. This shelf is connected to my head board.  These books consist of ones I want to read and review books. The hardcovers aren't usually there. I normally keep them out in the hall bookcase.



And lastly Amy asked me to pick out three of my favorite books from my collection. At first I thought she was crazy and now I know she's just evil.  Three books, the choosing was hard. Here are my picks:

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris - This was the first Paranormal Romance book I read and it's one of my favorite series.  I'm a big ol' fan girl when it comes to this series. I actually have three different copies of this book.

Hunters: The Beginnings by Shiloh Walker - Hunters series is another favorite. This series introduced me to ebooks and Ellora's Cave.  The first story in this book was the first ebook I read. I read it on my computer. I didn't purchase the paperback until much later. I'm so glad for my Kindle and ereader.

The Mane Event by Shelly Laurenston -  This is the first book in the Pride stories. I picked this book out because this series has been my obsession of 2010.  I love these books and have said so many times on my blog. Sadly, I've read all the books in the series. So, now I have to wait how every long until the next one.




Amy, Thanks for having me at your blog. :]
Thanks for sharing Anna!!!

Love them! I really love the headboard one!
I have a contest going asking people to show me their shelves or any interesting ones they find online. I'm giving away Graceling, Wake, Going Bovine and The Adoration of Jenna Fox to a random winner. I thought this would be fun since I LOVE seeing people's bookshelves!
And my bookshelves are here: http://candacesreadingblog.blogspot.com/2010/07/wanna-see-my-bookshelves-here-you-go.html

That was awesome to see all your books! I had some serious book envy for a bit there and your TBR pile is so much smaller than mine haha

LOL @ Manda. My TBR list is a bit longer than my shelf. Those are just the ones I own.
