My recent posts here have focused on the world outside my “interiors”: vacations, family things, etc.
Lately, my book buying has increased, and not only have I acquired a stupendous number of e-books, but my print stack is growing. The stack (above) includes some recent print book purchases.
Check out my Purchased Bookshelves for 2016:
Most of these are e-books, but some of the books you see above are also included. I’ve bought the following number of books so far this year, and listed in italics are the numbers I’ve read and reviewed:
January – 7 (Read 5 so far)
February – 6 (Read 5)
March – 12 (Read 8)
April – 12 (Read 6)
May – 15 (Read 5)
June – 12 (Read 4)
July – 10 (Read 4)
August – 15 (Read 1)
The Read the Books You Buy Challenge is helping me clear some books off my shelves, but I’m obviously buying more books than I read each month. (53 read so far, which includes books purchased from June 2015 on).
Of course there are review books, which are reflected on another page. I’ve been keeping abreast of those.
I haven’t done any purging lately, but I have been rearranging some things on my bedroom shelves. See below, with the Changing of the Guard (Dolls). I switched the dolls between the two shelves below, for my quirky reasons:
The hippie dolls in the top photo were two of my earliest doll purchases. The collection grew from there, but now my interiors showcase only some of my dolls. The rest are residing in bins in the garage. The Doll Graveyard, if you will.
What are your bookshelves like these days? Do your interiors reflect your passion for books?
