The Book Blogger Bookshelf Tag

Hi guys! I haven’t done a tag in a while, so found this one and decided to do it. I wasn’t nominated but it was left open. Here is the link.

Describe your bookshelf

I have a personal bookshelf in my room that is floor to ceiling and made of wood, but we have three tall bookshelves of family books and a short bookshelf of library books. We are quite book obsessed.

Do you have any special or different way of organizing your bookshelf?

For my personal bookshelf, I organize them tallest to shortest, as there is only one shelf devoted to books. I organize my library books alphabetically, and our family books are organized thematically.

Is there a book that you received as a birthday gift?

Several years ago, I received The Queen of Katwe by Tim Crothers from my uncle.

Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?

My friends gave me Uprising by Margaret Peterson Haddix and Maxi’s Secrets by Lynn Plourde.

Most expensive book?

I’m not sure.

The last book you read on your shelf?

Oceanology, a DK book.

Of all the books on your shelf, which was the first you read?

Probably Giraffe’s Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae, a book that we’ve had since I was very little.

Do you have more than one copy of a book?

We have two copies of Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen.

Do you have the complete series of any book series?

No. I’m working on the Lunar Chronicles, though.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer.

A book you’ve won?

I’ve never won a book.

A book you’d hate to let out of your sight?
