Describe your bookshelf and where you got it from- If you’re a reader of my blog you know I am a minimalist with my books now! Therefore, I have one bookshelf which is white wooden with built in lights. I was lucky that the previous owners of my apartment left them behind, so they were free!
How do you organise your books?- I split them by ‘unread’ and top 20 favourites! Once I read a book, I donate it if it doesn’t make my top 20! So it’s constantly rotating!
What’s the longest and shortest books on your shelf?- Shortest book is my vintage Paddington bear. The longest book is ‘The Shadow of the Wind’.
Is there a book you received as a birthday gift? I don’t think any were birthday gifts!
Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?- Again, I don’t have any! But I have a friend swaps books every few weeks, so there normally is!
The most expensive book on your shelf?- All my books are thrifted/ second hand so none of them were expensive!
The last book you read on your shelf?– ‘Invitation to a Bonfire’
Do you have a complete series?– Unfortunately not!
What’s the newest addition to your shelf?– ‘Paper Butterflies’
The oldest book on your shelf?– Flowers in the brain!
What’s a book you’d hate to let out of your sight?– Again, Flowers in the brain!
Most beat up book?– Cather in the Rye, it’s a beautiful edition!
Most pristine book?– Joyland by Steven King
A book that doesn’t belong to you?– Magpie Murders
A book that is your favourite color?– Catcher in the Rye! Pastel yellow.
A book that’s been on your shelf the longest and you still haven’t read it?– ‘Go set a Watchmen’. The world had to wait 40 years before reading. As I only recently read ‘To kill a Mockingbird’ I want to leave a little time before I pick it up. (Not 40 years haha)
Of all the books on your shelf, which was the first you read?– I honestly have no idea
Any signed books?– Not anymore! I had a John Green signed ‘The fault in our stars’ but I gave it away…
This tag was a really fun distraction during this pandemic, therefore I tag anyone reading!
