Prepare to be welcomed on a tour of my dragon hoard of books! (I always did like the term ‘bookwyrm’ more than ‘bookworm’.)
Having seen Ferret Lissa’s collection both in person (before) and in her post recently. . . I’m actually still not entirely sure who owns more books. Definitely safe to say either Lissa or I, of the Ferret cadre, though!
(Note: upon finishing this post, I am still not sure if I have more books or if Lissa does. Either way, though, mine are far less . . . ‘contained’. Also I have spent almost a full day on this project, which amazes me.)
Sadly, my collection cannot be featured here easily.
Right now I have a sad, small little bookcase on the other side of my bed from the door.
my tiny, sad little bookcase D:
The books share the space with my games and movies, as I have no other place to put those, either. In fact, looking at the picture, I realize that the bookshelf is mostly games and movies. >.> I should… probably do something about that.
I’ll be honest – I was tempted to do this as a video post. But then I realized I would have to clean way more than I was willing to. I think I swept up all the stray dust/fur bunnies, but if not, just ignore any you see in my photos. The bunnies are shy. 😉 Continue reading
There’s not much we Ferrets love more than books!
In our last series, we talked about some classics – and I’m sure we’ve still more to say on that topic. . . – but while this next series is still all about books, it is in a very different way.
In the coming weeks, each Ferret will introduce you to her personal library via her own words and pictures.
Each of us may share what fascinating books make up our collections, how we organise them (or don’t), the way we’ve stored them, how we’ve acquired them, how many we may not quite have managed to read yet. . .
You may even see how much of our space has been simply blatantly taken over by our books. (Which leads us on the never-ending quest for More Book Space!)
“If you have enough book space, I don’t want to talk to you.”
I kid – we’re happy to talk to anyone about books! But I’m not sure any of the Ferrets have enough book space. . .
Really, what we have to say about our libraries is probably as varied as, well, the libraries themselves! Come back next week and Rebekah will start us off. We hope you enjoy!
Now if you’ll excuse me, there’s a half-read book over there just calling my name!
What about your own personal library? Is it big or small? Organised or simply . . . organised chaos? 😉 Have you read most (or even all!) of your collection, or do you have a ‘to be read’ stack tall enough to be a structural hazard? We’d love to hear about it!
And most importantly . . . do you have enough book space?
Have we got a treat in store for all of you!
The A-Z Challenge starts tomorrow, and the theme the Ferrets have chosen for the month is “The World of Books”.
We’ve got an interesting selection of posts on this topic – everything from the writing of books to our favorite authors to quirky terms to poetry.
You’re really going to see what it’s like in the mind of the Ferrets – because we were able to think up all the posts for this theme in about an hour. Yes, we really are that diverse.
Or, rather, spin the wheel of ‘what the flapjack/fudge/fer-de-lance/fraggle-rock/monkey is coming up next?!’
So settle in, fetch some tea, and get ready to learn some interesting things!
Posts will be made Monday through Saturday, as Sunday is an ‘off’ day for the A-Z Challenge. Michelle will be kicking it off tomorrow with “A”, so be sure to check in!
