Updated bookshelf tour - September 2011

Maybe you've noticed that I like to look at my bookshelves. Or maybe you've seen me talking about bookshelf tours on Twitter. Or maybe this is just all news to you - but I like looking at bookshelves. A lot. Too much, even. But it doesn't bother me - I can literally spend hours just looking at the spines of my pretty books. Since it's been a couple of months (April, to be exact), I decided it was time for an updated bookshelf tour! I've acquired a new little cabinet that holds more books, and in this updated tour it's going to make its big debut! Hehe.

Anyhoo, here are the two videos that I recorded in which I show you my bookshelves :)

I hope you enjoyed! In case you don't like watching videos (or you just don't have the time for that right now), I also took pictures of the two little cabinets. I couldn't take a picture of my Big Closet because it's behind my bed and I couldn't think of a position humanly possible in which I could take a picture of the whole thing. So, euhm, sorry about that.

So this is the one that's directly besides my bed (did I mention I sorta turned my room into a library?) and I sometimes call it my go-to-shelves. Just because it's easiest to reach and it holds some of my absolute favorites, like Before I Fall, Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Hunger Games. The setup of these little shelves change all the time - behind the books on the first shelf is actually another row of books that I've read and wasn't particularly fond of (a couple) or ones that I'm not likely to re-read in the near future (the Sookie Stackhouse books). 

And this is my new baby! Yes, I am aware that it's another small little thing and some people will think 'why did you get that tiny thing?' but since my room is in the attick, I have limited room to work with so this was the best option - believe me, I want real shelves as well. Anyhoo, this one contains overflow of the other little thing. There's not much structure in it really, except that I keep 'light spined books' on the bottom left. Those are my Sarah Dessen books (minus Lock and Key, which is still in the first picture) and the Uglies series, as well as two contemporary reads. The paperback dystopians go on the bottom shelf and that's about all the structure in this thing. It works for me. I know exactly where every book in my room is, without having to check all the shelves even though I don't sort alphabetically by author.

I don't seperate my read books from my unread books, except maybe for the books that go behind the row of books in Little Thing number 1. But that's all. I love the way it's organised. I can just get what I want in one quick motion. I love that my room basically only has a bed, a dresser and books books books in it. What I love the most is that from whatever position in my bed I look out, I can see books. It's the most amazing thing ever.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at my bookshelves! If you have any questions, just leave them in the comments :)
