If you want to join in, it’s easy! You share a picture (or “shelfie”) of one of your shelves in whatever way you like to organize them. Then answer ten questions that are based around that particular shelf. You can do one shelf or your entire library! It will be fun to see everyone’s collections.
Now for my first Shelfie. It’s a little bookshelf that my mother made me. Originally it was going to hold my very favorite books but since a lot of those are still in boxes, I’ve been loading it up with ARC’s that I have reviewed over the last year or so. I didn’t have room for all of them as some of the books are taller than the shelf, but I fit what I could.
1.) Is there any reason for this shelf being organized the way it is or is it purely random?
Totally random. It holds the some of my ARC’s from the last year that met the height requirements.
2.) Tell us a story about one of the books on this shelf that is special to you i.e. how you got it/ a memory associated with it etc.
My favorite book on the shelf actually doesn’t have a real cover yet. There’s not even a title on the side. It’s on the bottom right. It’s a white book and it’s actually Diane Chamberlain’s upcoming novel “The Dream Daughter”. This is the earliest ARC I’ve ever received. Somebody wonderful sent it to me. They knew how much I loved Diane Chamberlain and how excited I was for her upcoming novel and sent out this early copy. It’s very special to me and it was a fantastic read!

3.) Which book from this shelf would you ditch if you were forced to and why?
I can’t do it…I just can’t
4.) Which book from this shelf would you save in an emergency and why?
I think I’m going to stick with my copy of “The Dream Daughter”
5.) Which book has been on this shelf for the longest time?
I think it would be Jodi Picoult’s “Small Great Things”
6.) Which book is the newest addition to this shelf?
The Perfect Mother
7.) Which book from this shelf are you most excited to read (or re-read if this is a favorites shelf?)
8.) If there is an object on this shelf apart from books, tell us the story behind it.
There isn’t any object on this shelf. However, above the shelf is a sign “Dee’s Rad Reads” my mother made the same time she made me the shelf.
9.) What does this shelf tell us about you as a reader?
Hmmm, great question. I think it says that I’d like to read a lot. Not a very original answer but it’s what came to mind. 🙃
10.) Choose other bloggers to tag or choose a free question you make up yourself.
Anyone who wants to do this, please feel free, but I would love if you would tag me as I would enjoy seeing it. It would be great if you also tagged Beth as I know she would also love to see your shelfie and your answers to the questions
I hope you liked my very first Shelfie!! I can’t wait to see everyone else’s pictures and their responses to the questions!
