National Bookshelf Sharing Day!
I took to Weekly Geeks this week in hopes of creating a National Bookshelf Sharing Week. In belated honor of the apparently-real National Carpenter’s day, we’re all sharing our favorite piece of bookish carpentry: the bookshelf.
Here is my little expat shelf:
Believe it or not, I only brought six of them with me from the States and the rest are all evidence of me failing at an attempt to limit how many books I buy.
I can’t wait to see all your shelves and a very happy belated Carpenter’s Day!
Hey, all! Kate here, popping in to give you a glimpse of my bookshelf (after the cut):
I may or may not have chosen my apartment based on the built-in shelving.
My previous apartment didn’t have anything, so I bought that tiny wire rack you see near the bottom of this photo. Needless to say, my book collection almost immediately overran it. I was piling books on the floor, on my dresser, on any surface I could find.
When I saw the shelving in this room, I was already enamoured with the place. Discovering these shelves was like meeting a wicked hot, nice guy and then finding out he’s a firefighter. Now, of course, my books have overrun the thing again and migrated to every surface of my room (and all of my purses), but I still have a soft spot for that built-in shelf.
