Whats on my bookshelf?

 

My friend inspired me to write this post because she gave the world a look of her old books and new bookshelf.

Okay, so in our current bedroom, we have 2 walls that have shelves and a kind of cabinet at the bottom. Technically the room is not ours so I cannot demolish things as of the moment. The shelvs we have divided into two, half of which contains MY clothes – yes, all of my clothes fit a quarter of a wall.

The other half is filled with books that I have collected over the last 2 years. I left a huge box of books at our old house, because there is simply no space for me to stash them. I did have this room at the old house that was filled with 2 more shelves of books too. Harharhar

I do not have a picture of my bookshelf right now, but the books that you can find on my shelf is a huge mix. Seriously. I have books by E.L. Doctorow, Stephen King, Jeffery Deaver seated right next to Robert Fulghum. Then I have computer textbooks right next to Drury & Tillet‘s The Occult: Sourcebook of Esoteric Wisdom. Then I have Shel Silverstein next to a couple of Harlequin Blaze paperbacks, dictionaries and books on classical mythology right next to Jonathan Stroud books. I also have a couple of new age books, a book on herbs, a couple of poetry books, short stories on love next to The Indie Band Survival guide. I also have Gaardner, classic novels like Great Expectations, a couple of compilation books of fairy tales and short stories, autobiographical books like Melville (I had one of Henry the Eighth in gilded hardback but I gave it to a friend). I also have Mitch Albom, Robert Ludlum, Elizabeth Gilbert, Ovid Demaris, Frederick Forsythe, Melissa de la Cruz and Paulo Coelho.

Yes, it is a mix. And that was just my current shelf. Most of the books I have already read. Some are new old books which I got from this sale. I love thrifting for books… did I tell you that?

Anyway, I also have a lot of ebooks that I need to finish. Hardeeharhar.

I am currently reading Rick Riordan’s “The Lost Hero.” Dude, it is so good! I cannot wait for the next installment, and I am just half-way since I started yesterday.

Mythology and me, we be friends. Which is why I kind of like to devour Riordan’s books. If only I could purchase the whole collection of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, I would be in heaven.

And that is all. 🙂

 

P.S. Did I ever tell you I always wanted my own library??
