Bookshelves, Organized

 My books were one of the final things I went through and organized after my move. I was going from my huge dream bookcase and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves on one whole wall of my office to three IKEA bookshelves in my upstairs hallway and an old cheap one in the basement. What a difference a move makes! I had to really pick and choose which books I wanted to have on the shelves, and which ones would have to stay in storage containers. I'm happy with how it turned out, and I'm thankful that I still have so many books that I love as well as others that I'm looking forward to reading for the first time.


The middle shelf holds classics, poetry, my collection of vintage Nancy Drews and other antique books, and historical fiction novels (my second favorite genre). 

Jane Eyre is still my favorite book, and has been ever since I read it in high school.

This shelf holds contemporary fiction, Young Adult, some fantasy and dystopian fiction, my Poldark books, and mysteries (my favorite genre!).

I put my Egyptian knick-knacks with the Amelia Peabody series. Perfect!

My two favorite British mystery authors are Agatha Christie and Ruth Ware.

I love these books! Many of them are like old friends.

Oh look, it's me, John, and Sam! 😉

Here we are again!

I really like my hall of shelves. It's right outside of my room and I see it every time I come up the stairs.
 I'll end this post with a genius gem I just thought up: a home without books is like a night without stars!
