So many possibilities!

Exploring the Bookshelf (3)

Welcome to another edition of Exploring the Bookshelf.


My friend Chris was kind enough to provide us with a couple of pictures from his home.


Chris has many interests, and a man after my own heart, loves music, books and graphic novels. In fact, start talking to Chris about graphic novels and you better sit down and grab a cup of tea. The kid can go on about graphic novels and talk to you about ones you've never heard of. So deep is his love.


Now, onto his bookshelves!

Shelf Candy Saturday!! (41)

Happy Saturday everyone!
Welcome to Shelf Candy Saturday! Thank you to Maria at A Night's Dream of Books for hosting this weekly meme.


Whew, it's been a long week. Seriously. I'm looking forward to settling down for a bit and reading, and browsing!
And as the summer winds down, I was thinking about awesome summer books I've read. What made me love them? What made me carry them around, hoping for just two minutes of quiet reading time?
There was first love, mermaids, road trips, lots of beautiful summer stories.


This week's Shelf Candy is one of my favorite Summer series.

Exploring the Bookshelf (1)

Ask anyone that knows me, and if I go into someone's house, I immediatley browse their book collection. A book collection can tell a lot about a person- sometimes their inner most secrets!

How the books are organized, what kind of shelving do they use? Alphabetical vs. color? Size vs. genre? Non-Fiction vs. Fiction?
The possibilities are endless when it comes to book organization!

For fun, I asked some of my friends to take pictures of their book shelves and write little blurbs about them.
I'll be featuring these for the next few weeks & next week I'll put a linky tool at the bottom of the post so you can link up to us!

Now onto our first Exploring the Bookshelf!

Welcome Nicole from The Reader's Antidote. Take it away Nicole!
