Bookshelves

Alas, my dear books are packed in boxes, not stored on bookshelves. We moved into a new home in January and a whole lot of stuff is still in boxes and probably will remain there indefinitely, because I like how things look without all the clutter. But if I had my books on shelves, they would probably look something like this (times 3 -- I've got A LOT of books):



If I were shopping for bookshelves (which I'm honestly not, because boxes work just fine for me), I'd be digging on these:

(found this one on the bookshelvesofdoom blog - doesn't that have a nice ring to it?)


This is bending my brain a little bit. I think I like it.


So how about you? Do you have your books on shelves, or are you a slug like me & have them all stashed away in boxes? Visit Candace's Book Blog & share pics of your shelves (or someone else's, like I did). She's going a really keen giveaway here.

Choose Your Book Giveaway

Run over to the Today & Everyday blog for this most excellent giveaway:


http://jeanette8042.blogspot.com/2010/07/choose-your-book-giveaway.html



Then come back here & tell me what book you would pick. :)

I'm impressed

Right now I'm reading a great time travel romance by Sara Mackenzie called 'Return of the Highlander', and I'm really impressed with how the author is handling the time travel aspect.



I usually enjoy a good time travel romance, but this one is especially impressing me. Why? The hero has been sent to the present day, but it's not like SNAP, he's here, what's for breakfast? No, he has to work at being seen and heard (and eventually felt) by the heroine. I think that's a nice touch.

In The Mail

Looky what came in the mail today! A copy of the anthology, 'Some Like It Rough', signed by Susan Lyons! Doesn't it look delicious? 

Once Upon A Read-A-Thon Mini Challenge

OK, here's an interesting mini challenge from the Book Crazy Blog for this week's Once Upon A Read-A-Thon: "pick your favorite book and/or character and pair it with a song and/or photo that reminds you of the person or setting in the book".


I love books and I love music, so this is a really fun one. But I don't think I can pick ONE favorite book, so I'm going with the book I'm just finishing up right now, 'Riding Wild' by Jaci Burton, from her Wild Riders series.



If you haven't read this series yet, you really need to check it out. I did it a little bit backwards and read some of the other books in the series first, but it was OK because they can be read out of order.

So the basic premise of the series is that the heroes are skilled thieves who now work for a secret government agency, stealing back things that have been stolen from the government, but can't be retrieved by conventional means. Here's the song that I'd pair with this series, from one of my favorite hardcore bands, Ministry:





Fun, no? :)
