On this week's Bookcase of the Week it is with great pleasure that I bring you Candace of Candace's Book Blog's bookcases. I asked Candace if she would like to participate in the Bookcase of the Week feature and within a few hours I had an e-mail with her pictures and descriptions of all the bookshelves scattered around her home. I love that she has books all over... makes me happy. See for yourselves:
This is my most rotated shelf. Meaning the books on it are constantly changing. The books on the very top are review books to be read yet and the books I get through the week. Once I do my In My Mailbox on Sunday then they go to whichever shelves they belong on. I also keep my borrowed books and my swag up there so I can easily throw in a bookmark, sticker or whatever I wish when I send out packages. The three shelves are all books to be read. I have other books to be read as well, but they don't all fit here so I usually just keep the first one or two of a series here. Or whichever ones I need to read next.
This next bookshelf is young adult books I've read. And the bottom is my giveaway books. I also have three photo albums but I've since moved them to the new bookshelf with the kids books because I've added more from my TBR bookshelf to this one.
This is our newest bookshelf and it ended up being used for all my daughters puzzles, games and books. I do have middle grade books in the middle cube and there are many more that will be added (I've since added enough that it's PACKED!).
This is more of my young adult books. I pretty much filled up the space I could reach through the bars. I did put a few others in the corner that are for my brother next time he comes to visit.
This is my mostly non fiction bookcase. It needs some organizing but my husband still has to put three more shelves on it so I haven't messed with it much. I did start adding some historical fiction or books I loan out a lot on it.
This is my other brand new bookshelf and is up in my room. It has space for two more bookcases next to it too. I use it for all my mass market paperbacks. Mostly anyway. It's mainly paranormal, urban fantasy and a few fantasy. I keep The Mists of Avalon on top and my box with some swag.
This is in one corner of my room and holds a few more series and swag for decoration. You can see one shelf has steampunk books and has my steampunk goggles on it too.
This shelf is in the opposite corner. It holds some of my favorites. Jacqueline Carey, Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison and Karen Marie Moning. Most of my Sookie books are loaned out so when they come back I'll have to find a new home for them as they won't all fit.
Then the top of my entertainment center in my room is covered in books (there are more inside too!) and then I have a shelf that goes around one end of my room. This is just a little bit of it, maybe a quarter? And it's pretty full of books. Plenty of room for more but they are impossible to get down so I want to find them all a better home (in my home!).
That is most of my books. I have a few random short shelves with more, and my daughter has a bunch more children and middle grade books in her disaster of a room.
Thanks so much for featuring me!
I'm so glad you played along with us Candace. I loved the glimpse into your home and a peek at all those bookcases. I need to convince the hubs to let me have books all over the house like yours allows you (I'm doing a show and tell presentation with your books tonight). I think they bring character and warmth to a home. Although I'm sure he'd say something dumb like... they're a fire hazard or something snarky like that. He sucks.
For those of you who haven't passed on through to Candace's yet, please visit her here (tell her I say HI!)
