Show me your.... bookshelves?

You all know I'm obsessed with the written word. I love everything there is to love about books, including bookshelves. I'm always very interested in seeing other people's bookshelves, so I thought I'd make it a feature on my blog. Every week I'll be posting pictures of someone's bookshelves! Want your bookshelves to be featured? Email me at StephanieNPellegrin@gmail.com and we'll talk! I'm hoping I have enough interest in doing this that I can keep it going for a while and I don't have to beg for pictures.

I thought it would be nice to start off with my own bookshelves. I had a library in our old apartment and I'm still in the process of setting one up in our new one. So far our spare room has been a, "Oh I have no idea where to put this so I'll stick it in here" kind of room. I wrote a previous blog post with pictures of that room and you can look at them here.

Here are my bookshelves now. I recently took a whole day and put everything in alphabetical order. I thought it was going to be an easy, quick, simple task. Boy I couldn't have been more wrong. Now that it's finished, I'm glad I took the time to do it.











I hope you enjoyed the small tour of my home library. I can't wait to get the room turned back into my library/office. We're getting rid of the couch that you see in the pictures and it'll hopefully be replaced with a writing desk I can put under a window that's on that wall. I'll update pictures as things progress!

And seriously, I need you to email me! Don't make me come begging everyone for pictures of their bookshelves, because I will do that.

  4. I love that everything is in alphabetical order. I have my Star Wars book arranged chronologically. When Paige was little she kept pulling them off the shelves and it took me forever to reorganize!

  8. Love your bookshelf photos. I probably don't have as many books as some of your other readers because every year I try to give away those that I don't love. I just gave away about 60 to a local book swap -- between the adults and the kids in our house, we read a LOT!

  9. Your shelves look great! I love looking at people's shelves. Is that the special edition His Dark Materials books I see? They have such pretty covers.
