Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs! Instead of a question this week, we have an activity…
Take us on a tour of your shelves
I have heaps of bookshelves so rather than taking photos of all of them, I thought I’d show off my favourite bookshelf and my classics one. At my mother’s place, my old bookshelf is built into a wall recess and stretches the length of the room and up to the ceiling. It is far more impressive than my paltry offerings today but I’m not driving an hour just to take a photo of it.
On the left is my favourites bookshelf. It looks a bit empty at the moment as I have just donated four bags worth of books to Prose for Cons. Books are organised alphabetically by author’s surname and then by their number in a series. I hate how uneven it looks with regular paperbacks next to trade paperbacks. 90% of the books are mysteries which is all I read before I got my eReader. Classical literature is on the bottom shelf.
On the right is my classics bookshelf. I studied classics and ancient history back in uni and still have all my old prescribed texts. Primary source books are organised by time period e.g. Ancient Greece (Classical), Ancient Greece (Hellenistic), Ancient Rome (Republic), Ancient Rome (Empire), Medieval, Renaissance etc and then alphabetically. The same should go for the textbooks below but one of my friends decided to reorganise it just to mess with my head – it worked.
