I have a confession to make… I tend to be really nosey around bookshelves – I just want to see what you’re reading! Making new kindred spirit bibliophile friends, gathering new titles for my GoodReads list, and bonding over similar tastes in books are so much fun! The lovely Modern Mrs. Darcy is hosting a bookshelf party this week, where fellow readers can share what is on their bookshelves! Fix yourself a warm cup of apple cider, get ready to add to your to-read list, and head over there for even more bookshelf goodness!
Today I’m giving you a peek into a few of our bookshelves around the house. I’m not sharing all of them today, as that would require a sack lunch, but I am excited to show you a few of my favorite things!
These bookshelves, on either side of our stone fireplace, are built-ins and were here when we bought our house two years ago…
I’m not entirely sure how Superman ended up on the same shelf as Anne Lamott, Max Lucado, and A.J. Jacobs…I’m guessing that I have a little boy to thank for that!
I have been lucky enough to find some new books recently while bargain hunting at a thrift store – I can’t wait to dive in!
These have been well-loved favorites since the 2nd grade…Thank you, Aunt Nanette!
Russian, Korean, and Hindi books – oh my!
Mr. Quinn wanted to say HI as he was guarding the antique books that I display in our otherwise empty dining room ~
We have several more bookshelves in our house – some for kids’ books, some for our homeschooling curriculum, and a giant copper bin for our library books. Oooh, and there are the stacks of books on our coffee table and my nightstand! Oh well – maybe we’ll visit those another time.
Thank you so much for coming to visit my personal library today! Are you like me and enjoy snooping around bookshelves when you’re visiting a friend? Did you see any favorites tucked into my collection? Is there anything that my collection is sorely missing that I need to add ASAP? I would love to hear suggestions from you! If you’d like to see what I’m currently reading, and how I rated what I just finished, I’d love to connect with you on GoodReads! You can find my link in the top right hand of the screen.
Just One of the Boys now has its own Facebook page! *happy Snoopy dance!* I would love to connect with you there as well – just click and “like” right here: Just One of the Boys! Won’t you please, won’t you please? Please won’t you be my neighbor? 🙂
I’m heading over to Modern Mrs. Darcy right now to check out all of the other bookshelf linkups… I hope that you join me!
Wishing you a most lovely weekend,
