Bookcase of the Week - Starring... Kristi from The Story Siren

Photobucket

This week's featured guest on the Bookcase of the Week is Kristi - some of you may know her as The Story Siren.  Kristi is just a cutie!  She's the founder of the 2010 Debut Author Challenge (which I didn't join this year, but will definitely be signing up for next year!) and IMM (In My Mailbox) - not to mention she always has the greatest reviews on all those YA books that we're dying to get our hands on.  She actually just celebrated her 100th IMM post - can you believe it?  You have to check out her post about it - she has the cutest vlog up.  So I asked Kristi to please, please, please send me pictures of her bookshelves - and she said she would but asked if I could give her some time since she was remodeling her shelves.  I agreed and look at the fab pictures she sent me! I AM SO JEALOUS! (in a good way).

Here's what she had to say:

"This is my new bookcase in all it's glory!!! I love it! My hubby built it for me, I helped out where I could with painting and nailing a few things... I didn't do much, compared to what he did. I think they are pretty freaggin awesome and I hope that I don't fill them up to fast!"

"I rarely spend time in my "office" although I have been in there more recently now that I have that awesome bookcase to look at! And it's not usually that clean.... well that's not exactly true, it usually looks like that, but with a bit more book scattered about."

"These are pictures of my three favorite reading spots. Included is my bed..... I like to read a little bit before I go to bed. Sometimes on Saturday mornings I'll just stay in bed and read for an hour or two before I get up. My comfy couch is where I do most of my reading. And then of course the hammock. That gets a lot of use in the spring and summer.... not so much right now, when the weather is a little bit chilly. I also read in the tub, but I have an ugly un-fancy tub... so I didn't take a picture of that."

Kristi, I thank you for playing along with us.  Your shelves are truly drool worthy - and I love the blue wall behind them.  It definitely makes them pop.  Good luck in not filling in your shelves too quickly - but it looks like you might have some trouble - I've seen your IMM posts and you get a ton of books a week -dang!

For those of you who haven't passed on through to Kristi's yet (and I'm sure it's very few of you), please visit her here (tell her I say HI!)

Check her bookshelf tour at Badass Bookie, and you'll see that she is still storing some more books in tubs and such. ;) Thanks for the extra bits, I've been wanting to see what the rest of the room looked like. Nice to find out where you read, too!

What a beautiful new bookshelf!! I wish hubs was handy like that and loved to build things for me. =)

Those pics are fab. Sigh, I want my own house so badly, so I can build a wall of bookshelves, instead of all these individual bookshelves.

Great Job on the shelf. Ive told my DH when we get the new house I need a bookshelf intergrated into the wall too.



Thank you for the wonderful post!

I am in love with that built-in bookcase her husband built for her!!! Now that's love!

Sarah said...

Oh, I want I want!

I LOVE how colorful -- I'm sure she organizes by color which is just brilliant. I mean, I couldn't do it because I'm obsessive about my genre / alphabetical organization but --

Thank you for sharing! And I hope to do her challenge next year too!

Those shelves are awesome! Kristi has a fantastic hubby for helping her get those in place. I also love the color of blue she's chosen.

Fantastic!
