Hello all you lovely bloggers! Today, I’m bringing a look at my hugely messy bookshelves. You lucky people are getting to see both my physical and e-book shelves, both of which are over-filled and out of control!
My bookshelf is the Billy Bookshelf from IKEA. It has 6 compartments, but only 5 have got books on because I have misc stuff at the bottom that has no other place to go.
I store my physical books in author surnames, A – Z, so that I can easily and quickly find any book I need. I was going to go for a rainbow shelf, but I’d never be able to find the books I wanted that way!
I recently had a slight reorder of these shelves because I had spare books piling up on shelves they shouldn’t and making the whole thing look a big ol’ mess! Here are what my shelves look like…
E-book shelf (books I’ve bought)
Now onto my Kindle bookshelf… Now this really is a state! ALL of these books are unread. Yes… I’ve paid money for all of these books (excluding 6 that are public domain or were on special offer) and I still haven’t read them! I, of course, have another section of my Kindle books that are read, I just haven’t shown them for this post.
Yes, you saw that correctly! These are currently the books I have on my Kindle that are yet to be read… I really can’t resist a 99p Kindle book, but then I never get round to reading them! Oops!
E-book shelf (arc copies)
These books here are my Netgalley (and other) eARC copies.
This is extremely out of hand, considering these books were given to be for review purposes! By the time this blog goes up, this is going to be a little out of date, plus, there are some Netgalley books in these shots that I’ve already read but have forgotten to take out of my Netgalley / eARC section of my Kinde! (Desperately trying to to make it look like I have some self control and organisational skills)
Ugh, yes. These are all the books I really need to get round to soon! I’ve managed to calm my Netgalley trigger finger recently, so this folder hasn’t been added to in a while, but it’s still a hot mess that I need to get a grip on!
So there we have it, you’ve now all seen the state of my bookshelves…What a mess!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this simple but fun to make post. Let me know about the state of your own shelves in the comments! I’d love to hear if you’re just as much as a mess as me, or if you’ve got yourself under control!
(Update: My shelves are back to being a mess again, since this post I’ve received and bought more books, but a few more of the Kindle eARCs have been read now!)
