Post a picture of your bookshelf

I'm a firm believer that the books you have are a reflection of your personality. Never mind that you don't get to read them, just the fact that you bought them and keep them in your bookshelf say a lot about who you are (or who you want to be).



Here's a snapshot I took of a section of my bookshelf. I'm sure that you're already coming up a list of my character traits just by looking at the books.

Let's try a little experiment, shall we? Email me a picture of your bookshelf at peter.sandico@gmail.com, and I'll post it here with my insight on your character. I'll be waiting!

This is a great post! I have posted mine HERE . Although it's more bookcases than shelf! I'd love to know what character insight you come up with when looking at my books and shelves :)

Hi - So you are the Peter that started this mania! I caught it over at J. Kaye's Blog. I have posted my bookshelves and boxes at my blog:

(And besides saying "I love books" it says I have excess and can't always keep things in order!!
Have a great day!

Strangely, I had posted about my bookshelves (or lack thereof) just last week! And then someone else commented today and told me about you. Good timing. ;)

In case you're interested you can see the shelves here! :)

You've got a pretty interesting blog here, too!
