My Crammed Bookshelves

My Bookshelves in all their overstuffed glory

My bookshelves as of June 23, 2011
I have had a few requests to see pictures of my bookshelves.
<Bk# S> =  Specific book signed
<TBS>=To Be Signed (Check my signing event tab)
(#)= number of books I have in series
*= I haven't read
L*= I haven't read the Last Book
L#*= I haven't read the Last # of Books

The author's links are to my favorite website Fantastic Fiction. It is the easiest website to find the author's written library, the order of the series, series name and publication dates.

Overflow Bookcase
The top row and 1/2 are a mix of Wizard of Oz additions, Greek Mythology, Brothers Grimm, Hans Christen Anderson, Fairy Tales I have a few different publications of each author
The last 3 shelves are misc books that I don't want to link

Floor Stack
This is my newest stack, I just re-arranged my shelves earlier today and this is where the stack has currently found a home. More misc books that I  might end up boxing away till I have a new house and my library room (5+ years away).

Gift Stack
Right Stack
Are books that will be gifted. The Patricia Brigg books are signed for my sister.
The Jacqueline Carey books <TBS> for someone, not sure who yet.
Left Stack
Are all signed books. I'm not sure who they are going to yet. They will be a gift to someone.

This post ended up being A LOT longer than what I was intending it would be.

How many bookshelves to you own?

Yay!! I'm glad you posted this! I'm on my way to the store, but I'll come back and read it in a little. :)

The Lovely Getaway said...

this is amazing! i am totally in love with your bookshelves! You could start your own library if you wanted too! Dude can I come over and read? I promise I dont eat much! I just need a little spot on the floor :)haha! let me know..... like, really. I'm serious :) Jk!

Jessica (Peace Love Books) said...

Shoot, that's a ton of books! I thought i had a lot but my bookshelf is only like half the size of yours...I'm really jealous! And you've got tons of signed books! Super jealous of that too! I don't have any signed cuz authors never come around where I live :( So yeah, awesome book collection you've got going on there!!

-Jessica (Peace Love Books)

Kristina said...

@Lovely You are welcome to come over, just no broken spines, rips or tears to the books. :) Keep them looking new and you can come and squat in my house to read books

@Jessica I am pretty lucky to live just 40min away from Seattle, it is a good author stop. I am very proud of my shelves, but of course I want more books!

Fiktshun said...

Yay! You posted pictures! You have a LOT of a-mazing books. I've been stalking them for just a few minutes. I don't think I could fit that many books in my house. They are gorgeous! And so organized!

Of course, now with that floor stack you'll need a new bookshelf!

Kristina said...

@Fiktshun I completely forgot to write in the post they are organized by Adult 1st than YA books. I need more shelves, but I don't know where to put them at. I need a bigger house!! What I might have to do is box some books away that I know I won't be touching, but I really don't like that. I love to display my books, I am so proud of my collection. It is both an addiction an a hobby :D

Moonlight Gleam said...

I only own 2 bookshelves at the moment and wow! It is no comparison to yours! I looooooove your books!!! I wish I had that many!!!

Kristina said...

@Moonlight Thanks, I really love my bookshelves so much. I just wish I had more space and could buy even more books knowing they have a shelf space waiting for them. I will probably have to add random little shelves all around my house eventually. I will try to keep my bookshelves looking as pretty as possible and organized as possible. We will see how that goes.
