Today on Show Me The Shelves Sunday we have Karen from My Weight Loss Journey. Let's sit back and take a tour of her bookshelves!

When I first received the details on this guest post, I was very excited to take the pictures the next day.  When I walked into my room, camera in hand, I realized that my bookshelves had been neglected and to show them to the world would be a bit embarrassing. 

I have tried to keep each shelf a singe subject/topic/genre, but as room gets tights, books just get placed where there is room.  I have a 4th bookshelf in the living room the we also have and several other books on my Kindle app. 

I LOVE books but have a small home and finding space for my treasures is becoming difficult.  I started buying books on Kindle, and it's a wonderful way to read, but there are many limitations.  There is something magical about seeing your little babies all lined up that I miss.  (I don't miss the dusting of course) and not having books to share is a bummer too.  So as you can see, my book storage is full and I need to go through and maybe find a home for some of them so I can make room for some upcoming newbies.

I chose my top three books for various reasons:

Twilight: I stopped reading for several years because I was busy with babies and school.  This book reminded me how much I love reading a good book with a story that sweeps you away.  There are so many reasons I love this book.

Hunger Games: This book represents that not all books are what they seem.  I didn't think I would like it, the summary of the book wasn't interesting to me because it's not the type of book I would typically be interested in, so I thought.  I began reading this book purely from recommendation and it ended up being one of my favorites.

Bran Hambric by Kaleb Nation: This is one of my favorite books because I adore the author and his bio.  He began writing this book as a 14 year old homeschooler and published it at 20. This book represents the results of hard work and perseverance.  As a home schooling family, this book reminds me how the hard work will pay off for my children some day.  I love the story, the innocence and the mystery behind the main character's search for answers. 

Thank you so much Karen for joining in the fun and sharing your shelves with us!

I had a lot of fun putting this together! Being a perfectionist I just noticed that in my haste to get this to you quickly (thinking I was late) I failed to edit the 3 typos in the second paragraph!! (I have learned my lesson: even if you are short on time and have scanned what you wrote, re- read it one more time-can't hurt!!) :O

Can't wait to read more "Show Me the Shelves Sunday" posts! <3
