Day 29 Book Photo Challenge: My Bookshelf

I took this as a good opportunity to up date the photo I have of my library. I have other large book shelves around the house but this is the main area where I read. There was at some time in the past some sort of order to the books but that has been left by the wayside.

When we moved in the shelves were already attached to the wall which meant that our original plan of making this room into a pool room couldn’t happen. Its called the library because that is what button on the air conditioning calls it. And I couldn’t have been more delighted.   


It’s World Book Day today. Here are some gifs and quotations about books that render what this tumblarian finds hard to express without becoming a flailing flibbertigibbet. 

There’s so much more to a book than just the reading - Maurice Sendak

Great books help you understand, and they help you feel understood –John Green

There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favourite book - Marcel Proust

Beware of the person of one book –Thomas Aquinas

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go - Dr. Seuss

Apparently, there’s a lot of dressing up on World Book Day, so later I will be dressing up as a person going to the bookshop to buy a book. Then…I will buy a book. I’m very serious about my cosplay. 

Happy World Book Day everyone :)

Look at all of these beautiful books I own, but haven’t read! Not pictured are the six more books I found, my kindle (with at least eight books I haven’t read on there) and the books I’m currently reading- This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald and a Johnny Cash biography. 
I’ve got a wonderful lot of reading to do! (And yet, there are six more books on their way to my post office as I type!)
