Today is week 2 of the Tour My Bookshelves series. If you missed my first post, check it out here. Basically each week I am going to take you on a tour of my bookshelves, room by room all throughout the month of August.
This week I will be showing you the bookshelves in my bedroom I have a tall 5 shelf bookshelf, a short 2 shelf and my blog cart holds some of my ARCs. I actually turned my 5 shelf into a 6 shelf. I went to Menards and the finished shelves they have don’t fit any of the shelves in my house so I had to make do with something else. Luckily there was the perfect board in the bargain wood section. It was a little too long but the depth was perfect. I got it for less than $2. My dad has a table saw so I just brought it over to his house to shorten the length. For now it will not match the rest of the shelf because it is just plain wood. It’s been too humid here to for paint to dry properly.
There is the bookshelf in all it’s glory. I keep my TBR jars on this bookshelf. And even though I made them months ago, I have yet to use them. The top three shelves and the bottom shelf are organized specifically and the middle three aren’t organized any special way.
Shelf 1 holds my Nicholas Sparks collection and part of my Tudors collection.
Shelf 2 holds my Philippa Gregory collection and other Tudor novels.
Shelf 3 holds my Tudor non-fictions and my Ireland collection, both fiction and non.
Shelf 4 has a random selection of books. In the middle I do have all of my Tracy Chevalier books together.
Shelf 5 starts off with The Chronicles of Narnia and Anne of Green Gables and then moves into a random assortment of books.
Shelf 6 holds all of my Dear America and Royal Diaries books. I had a little bit of extra space so for now I have A Lifetime of Secrets there until I can collect more Dear Americas and/or Royal Diaries.
I have a smaller bookshelf that also holds our TV. Now that I have added a shelf plus the bookshelf from last week’s tour, I was able to clear out space for other items I needed to store.
On the top shelf I have my Wii and Wii Fit Balance Board along with my 70th anniversary GWTW dvd set.
Shelf 2 holds my photo boxes and some of my husband’s books.
Shelf 3 holds more of my books. No real order to this shelf.
And the final book spot in my bedroom is the ARC shelf on my blog cart.
It is full now, with my more recent ARCs on the new shelf in our office. My blogiversary is coming up next month so I plan on doing a giveaway to pass some of these on.
Stay tuned next Monday to see more of my bookshelves!
