Hello, everybody! Today I have a fun tag that I found on Paper Fury by Cait so please check it out because she has a pretty cool blog! Anyhoo, I stumbled upon on the tag and thought it'd be really fun to do so here I am. It's kind of a long one so let's get started before I ramble on too much!
DESCRIBE YOUR BOOKSHELF AND WHERE IT'S FROM
My glorious shelves are the Billy bookshelves I got from IKEA, yet another place I live at and can't seem to visit enough. I swear I heard angels singing when I saw them. There was a literal spotlight and everything.
HOW DO YOU ORGANIZE YOUR BOOKS?
I'm pretty picky and calculated on how I organize, whether it's where the book will look best or if it belongs in a series. My shelves are mainly organized by series then go into duologies and finally stand-alones and a mix of adult and non-fiction books as well as classics. I'm a neat freak.
WHAT'S THE THICKET BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
This bind-up of Edgar Allen's Poe works and Classic Tales of Horror are both over 850+ pages. But they're both surprisingly light.
WHAT'S THE THINNEST BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
This little guy is only about 86 pages and it's just so cute to see on my shelf. I haven't read it read but I'm pretty sure it will be a quick read.
IS THERE A BOOK YOU RECEIVED AS A BIRTHDAY GIFT?
I've received a few other books as gifts such as the Classic Tales of Horror but these are my favorites! I got Library Of Souls from my sister for my birthday, these awesome Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew vintage editions from a friend because she knows I have an obsession with them, and Bag of Bones from my brother since he bought a WAY fancier edition and gave me the paperback. Yay!
WHAT'S THE SHORTEST BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
This is just a random book I bought at my library because it's just so cute and I'm a sucker for old books. It's an edition from the 1940's and with the green and gold color, I just needed it.
WHAT'S THE TALLEST BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
This is probably the weirdest and most random book I've ever bought . . . which is why I bought it in the first place. This book sits right next to my shelves since it's way too tall to fit on any of them, not to mention I have no idea what this book is about. It's a board book with cartoon/comic illustrations with no obvious form of a story. Other than the cover and the title, it's a vague clue but not a for sure thing.
IS THERE A BOOK FROM A FRIEND ON YOUR SHELF?
My friend bought me this book a while ago because she thought it looked like something I'd enjoy. Turns out, I had been searching high and low for MONTHS trying to find a copy! It was a pleasant surprise for the both of us!
THE LAST BOOK YOU READ ON YOUR SHELF?
I haven't actually finished this one. I decided to put it on hold for now since I wasn't in the mood for the type of book that it is. Don't get me wrong, I was loving it! I just wanted something a little faster paced at the time.
DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE COPY OF A BOOK?
What? Me? No, not at all. That's crazy talk.
DO YOU HAVE A COMPLETE SERIES?
I have a few other complete series but these are just a few of my favorites.
WHAT'S THE NEWEST ADDITION TO YOUR SHELF?
WHAT BOOK HAS BEEN ON YOUR SHELF SINCE FOREVERRR?
Too many to name but one particular one is Young Samurai: The Way Of The Dragon and I keep it because not only does it look and sound cool, but it's a sequel to a book I've never read. So obviously I have to hold onto it, right?
WHAT'S THE MOST RECENTLY PUBLISHED BOOK ON YOUR SHELF?
I've been very strict with myself on the books I buy this year which means mostly getting only 2016 publishings. So far, I've done pretty nicely with this being the most recently published book this year back in February.
A BOOK YOU WON?
So far, I've never won any books BUT anything can happen!
A BOOK YOU'D HATE TO LET OUT OF YOUR SIGHT?
Um, all of them. Literally, the only people I lend my books out to are my siblings since my sister lives down the street and my brother across the hall so I can keep an eye on my books. My friends actually have to assure me every other minute that one of my books is safely intact. I'm not even kidding.
MOST BEAT UP BOOK?
I keep my books in as pristine a condition as possible but I love buying old vintage books so I have quite a few that are very beat up and seem like they're about to fall apart at the seams. Some of the spines are even starting to come off.
MOST PRISTINE BOOK?
That would probably have to be any of my most recent purchases that have been published sometime this year. But as I said, I take very good care of my books. I don't even let the air blow on them!
A BOOK FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD?
I used to read these books almost every single day and I've read them countless times throughout my life on into my teen years. I never get tired of them!
A BOOK THAT'S NOT ACTUALLY YOUR BOOK?
I have a couple of books that my mom keeps on my shelf since she ran out of room on her own bookshelf. We're obviously a family of readers.
A BOOK THAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COLOR?
I'm a sucker for any book with the color blue on it. If it wasn't obvious.
ANY SIGNED BOOKS?
Just a few . . .
So that's it, everybody! I hope you guys enjoyed this tag and if you want to do this, please do! I'd love to see your post on it and feel free to say I tagged you. Read on bookworms! See you in the next chapter!
