⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Such a fun, literary celebration! I grabbed this (current) ebook deal, but my Paperwhite, though usually amazing, just can‘t do Jane Mount‘s beautiful artwork proper justice ... but $1.99 is a $1.99, so I jumped on it. It was fun seeing some familiar bookshops (Parnassus, King‘s English, Tattered Cover) featured and, naturally, my TBR has expanded. Definitely buying this for my step-MIL for Christmas. She‘ll love it!

jillrhudy The publisher sent me a physical ARC of this through Librarything and I was thrilled. It‘s the most beautiful book! Needless to say I left raves. Did you know the artist does commissions?!?!?! So you could have a print of your favorites. 🤩 1mo
Donnasmiles I can see myself diving into this later today...
Thanks for the recommendation.

britt_brooke @jillrhudy Yes!! I‘ve thought about ordering a custom design. I have the “classics” mug and a few of her enamel pins. Such beautiful, fun designs! 💚 1mo

I just discovered the My Library app... I'm about to fall deep down this hole...

jy0tiar0ra Wow, looks good. Android app? 2mo
ShyBookOwl Yes. You can add books manually or scan them in with ISBN, and add as many notes as you want. It's all private too. There's no rating system built in, but u can add that in notes if u want. 2mo
meltedsquirrel Oh I fell down that hole and added all 800 of my books in a weekend. 1mo
ShyBookOwl @meltedsquirrel Haha The scanning feature is super convenient for a big library like that! 1mo

A pile of #History books in Mount's book. Although I read several nonfiction books a year & am fascinated by it, history is one of my least read genres. A few of these are on my TBR.

saresmoore Hmm, I look at these and just...don‘t care. 😬😴 History is fascinating, but I think I tend to go for the sociology- or science-forward accounts and it‘s hard to know what you‘re getting, at first. 2mo

Hold onto your TBR —

Bibliophile is jam-packed with information, illustrations, recommendations, and just about everything else that has to do with books. I seriously think I doubled my to-be-read list after reading this book. Highly recommended and fun for bibliophiles like me.

So... I just updated my Goodreads to reflect all the books I want to read, but don‘t own. This means it doesn‘t include the #TBR books I have saved on #Scribd or #Libby, or the ones stacked on my shelf. 🤭

twohectobooks My goodreads tbr has ballooned to over a thousand books at this point, the vast majority of which I don‘t own. It‘s becoming a bit of a problem haha 3mo

I picked up this puzzle on Independent Bookstore Day; it felt fitting to start piecing it together on National Book Lovers Day. I‘m finding it very helpful that I am familiar with every book and author in the puzzle. I‘ve read 13 of the 23 books illustrated. I think it will be a fun challenge to read the rest. Bonus-the puzzle comes with a frameable print of the finished product. Really had a great night working on this with my dh and daughter.

Balibee146 I've got a different book puzzle part done... Looks fab 👍👍 3mo

Considered everyone's suggestions and came up with a new system: a genre/time period combo, considering height in each. Shelf 1 is futuristic. Shelf 2 is fantasy that feels contemporary, and fantasy that feels historical. Shelf 3 is contemporary fic and historical fic. 🤓

I feel pretty good about it atm... but I'll have to sleep on it to know for sure lol And yes, my bookmarks are in a Buffy mug 😊

Thx all!

SW-T Looks nice. Hope it works for you and that you still feel good about it after sleeping on it for a while. As long as you can find what you‘re looking for when you want it! 😊 4mo

Help! -- I've been thinning out my books with the goal of eventually only owning and displaying books I LOVE. I have two bookcases with some keeps on them now (this is one) but I CANNOT decide how to organize them 😖 it's driving me nuts!

How do u all organize shelves??

Tamra It‘s been a couple of years since I adopted this philosophy! 👍🏾 I can‘t speak to organization because I still don‘t have bookshelves yet after moving. 😖 4mo
ShyBookOwl @Tamra oh no! I'm actually moving next month so I was motivated by having a ton of books I just did not want to move with me. I think there are still a bunch I'll get rid of eventually, but I need to buy more favourites first (don't want my shelves too bare lol) 4mo
melissanorr I organize mine by genre, then by series length and then by author. So I have all my urban fantasy together and within that they are grouped by author with the author with the most books first. Of course I haven't even pretended to downsize my collection 🤷‍♀️ 4mo
See All 8 Comments
ShyBookOwl @melissanorr clever! Genre scares me because almost everything overlaps and stresses me out lol I like the series length part though! 4mo
wanderinglynn My system is kind of by how I feel. Classics are all together, as well as poetry, and non-fic (which is then broken down into type). General fiction goes together, then my largest section is paranorm/UF/fantasy/sci-fi, which is mostly by series or author. I also have special sections for some of my fave authors (like the shelf that is all things Neil Gaiman). The my TBRs have their own shelves. 4mo
ShyBookOwl @wanderinglynn I like how personal that is! Thx 4mo

So, this was the coolest thing I've ever had happen when reading a book.

I'm sure that many of you know of the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck in NYC. One of its founders, Bryan, is a friend from high school. His younger sister remains one of my brother's best friends to this day, 30 years later. Not only have Bryan & Doug written a cookbook, they were featured in Bibliophile! 😁

This book is lovely, whimsical, & so much fun to read.

Started this yesterday because my hold came in from the library. I was bummed because they didn't have it on Overdrive, and I'm always nervous bringing library books into the danger zone that is in close vicinity to my young children, but this hardcover book with the built in ribbon bookmark is gorgeous. It is a joy to hold.

Life has been overwhelming lately, and I'm behind in my reading tracking. Will get to May stats eventually.

This book took me forever to read (or so it seemed). I kept stopping to look up anything that interested me...like how far that certain bookstore is from my house. Also, I read this in ebook format which I really do not recommend. The pages and text and illustrations don‘t match up very well. Overall a good book about books/bookstores.

#bookfitnesschallenge #grumpycat
I am a day late posting my weekly update (very sick yesterday-didn‘t want to move). I was able to get in 3 gardening sessions and 1 meditation so I hit my goal. I also read or listened to 7 short stories/books (703 pages). I‘ll count that as 2 books out of 6 for my goal. Points: I‘ll edit once I count them up. My favorite was the Grumpy Cat book. #shewillbemissed #sosad
