Bookcase of the Week - Staring... Felicia of The Geeky Bloggers Book Blog


In today's Bookcase of the Week, it is with great pleasure that I bring you Felicia a/k/a The Geeky Blogger's bookcases.  I originally met Felicia thru Misty when she asked us to co-host the Trick or Treat for Books Giveaway together.  And I'm so glad, because Felicia is such a nice gal.  I asked her to participate in my little weekly feature and look at all the great pictures she sent.  But I'll quit yapping, here's Felicia:  

Hi Ya'll!

I was kind of excited and scared when asked to take part in showing off my bookshelves--mainly because most of my books are on my kindle :)

In May--I did this thing I called Project Bookshelf!  I am a reader, I should have bookshelves!  It went something like this.

Project BookShelf: buy bookshelf, put together bookshelf, cuss at bookshelf, complete bookshelf, move all bajillion of my dvds on to bookshelf (the single ones are all in the totes, the open shelves are all box sets--yes I have a dvd buying problem), wondering why I keep calling it a bookshelf, then creating Project Book cover (which I will get to later)

First step:  Don't be intimidated by boards, screws, nails, and what they heck are those plastic things?

Second step:  Do the happy dance that you got it all together (and yes still operating to this day)

Third step:  Admit you are using a bookshelf for DVD's---but if you look hard there are actual books

Fourth step:  Find a printer ASAP

Fifth step:  Fill boards with your favorite covers!  (This was a ton of fun)

Oh and here are a few pictures of where actual books go in my house--since I pass on the paper ones rather quickly: on my desk, in a box, on bookshelves stuck in my closet (I saved you from seeing that mess), and piled everywhere :)

Oh and where do I blog?  I have a laptop and a desktop but most of the time you will see Tonks doing this if I am on the laptop in the bed!

Felicia, Project Book Cover is so unique!  It looks like a project I may want to partake in.  I look at your pictures and see your book stacks and remember the days where I had stacks all over the place too.  I now have my own bookcases that are filled and have begun overflowing into new stacks.  le sigh... it looks like I'll never get rid of them stacks.  But then again, I'm not complaining.  Thank you so much for sharing your pictures... and Tonks is just gorgeous.  I would not mind at all having that lovely head on my lap while I blog. Thank you again for playing with us Felicia - it was a pleasure to feature your bookshelves.

For those of you who haven't passed on through to Felicia's yet, please visit her here (tell her I say HI!)

LOVE this post.
Super fun.

I have a black lab that is quite similar to yours :)

I save all my hardcover covers too.

I keep wondering how I will use them someday.

Great post :)

Tonks is a nut!

She very much does not appreciate reading time as much as I do---though she has gotten used to it :)

I donate or giveaway all my paperbacks (unless signed) then keep my hardcovers. I am the same way though---have no idea why LOL

Love, love, LOVE the bookcase! I wish I had more space for my books! :( Oh, and a little award for you on my blog,... http://thecaffeinateddivareads.multifacetedmama.com/?p=1009

Aw, what a great post!! And a *HIGH FIVE* for Felicia on assembling a shelf that's still standing...you go girl :) It looks really good.

I love the pic of your Kindle with your Starbucks tea. I'm addicted to their Iced Black Tea ~ yum!!

And Tonks is a beauty! I'm a huge dog lover and I love having my four-legged munchkin sprawled on me while I read.

It's great to meet you Felicia...I'll be sure to visit your blog very soon!

Cuteness all around. Love the book covers you have up and the skin for your Kindle is very cute. Look at the puppy! Very cool Felicia. Thanks for sharing.

The bliss that is wintertime in Colorado. I love to have my Rott Lab mix snuggle up next to me while I am reading. She is super warm.

I just filled two bookshelves with my stacks and am quickly running out of room. I guess I might have to part with some of my beloved books after all.

Hi! I'm a new follower. Your blog is so cute.
I'm so jealous-the books in those pics are so nicely placed and organized. I only have one bookshelf in my apartment and too many books.
Glad to have found your blog.
Have a great week :)

LOL Felicia! Your book/DVD shelf is awesome. What a great project to work on. And I love the cover thing that you did. So cool! And you puppy is super cute! Does he know who to blog? ;)

Look at that cute pooch! Great book case :)

@kim The reason I got my kindle was for lack of space! My library got 400 books from me one day--they were happy :)

@isalys (cool name) I am surprised it is still standing too--there were parts left over LOL

@steph Tonks is super cute! I try not to tell her that though--she already claims most of the bed--she would probably have me sleep on the floor :)

@teresa tonight is very cold in texas--going to love my lab foot warmer :) They are the best things ever--those furry kiddos of ours!

@carolyn the shelves aren't as neat now :) They look good--I mess them up and then organize again LOL

@missie Tonks has blogged many times for me--in fact all spelling mistakes are hers not mine (that is my story and sticking to it!)

@michelle Thanks! She is super cute and watching me right now LOL

That is a boatload. Mine is similar but in far less organized--and far messier--condition.
