My “bookcase” is unconventional — it’s more of a bookshelf that goes along the wall of our landing.
After all, I love seeing all my books as I come up the stairs. They have such a calming effect on me.
Sharing is caring
There is a real bookcase in our living room though, filled with my partner’s fantasy and science fiction books.
I recently dipped into his collection, and have just finished reading the first book in the “Gone” series.
It’s about a town where everybody over the age of 15 vanishes and the teens and children left behind develop powers.
A great book for the older teens in your life!
My shelf is less organised than my partner’s, and there are all sorts of genres mixed up together.
I don’t dip into non-fiction often, but every now and then I will.
I read it a few years ago and loved it, so when I found this edition in a charity shop, I had to have it.
I danced from a young age, so I loved reading about Pauline, Petrova and Posy — especially Posy, as she chased her dream of becoming a ballerina!
If I had to name a favourite genre it would probably be children’s fiction.
And of course, I have a bookcase made up of pixels on my Kindle as well.
So, what about your bookcase? Organised or messy? Streamlined or eclectic?
