Literary Addicts Weekly Meme: My Book Hoard

It’s Wednesday! And that means it’s time for the Literary Addicts Weekly Meme! Every Wednesday, they suggest a fun theme to write about. The theme of this week: “Show us your book hoard! Take a picture and show us what you have!

I wish I had been asked this question about a month ago because I would have had SO much to show you! I had two large bookcases in my bedroom that were overflowing with books, plus a nightstand that was unrecognizable as a piece of furniture because it was covered with so many books. But my husband and I decided to replace the carpeting in our bedroom with bamboo flooring, and so we did a major clean-up! All the furniture had to be moved out of the bedroom, so I donated a lot of my books to our library’s used bookstore, and we boxed up many more. So, for now, you get to see the two shelves of books that are on my “to-read list.”

Can you see why I can’t accept many book reviews? I have enough books lined up to read for years. And this doesn’t even include the books I have downloaded to my Nook or those I’ve saved on my Amazon wish list. There are just too many wonderful books in the world! I’m getting stressed out just thinking about it…

So, while I go grab a cup of tea (or something stronger) to de-stress, I’d love to know: What does your book hoard look like?

  1. We recently moved into a temporary residence so sadly 98% of my books are boxed up. Behind my bedroom door are new boxes, which have my TBR pile in them. The boxes are staked about 5 feet high and over flowing.

    In addition I have my kindle & iPhone loaded with books.

  2. Lots of books =) Mine is my kindle just because most of my books are in boxes waiting for us to move.

  3. But everything is so organized! My books are not all in one location either - even though we have been in this house for a good 7 months now. I understand them not being all in one place! They look lovely!

  4. What a nice looking bookshelf. Don't you just wish you have an entire floor to ceiling library sometimes. *sighs*

    1. Oh, yes, that is my dream ... to have a home library! Once I'm an empty-nester, I'll definitely turn a bedroom into a combination library/office. I'd probably never want to leave that room!

  5. You can great books! Nice shelf too :)

  6. I feel there is no such thing as too many books. Awesome book shelves.
