The Bookshelf Project #3

This week's pictures of bookshelves are from Em. Just look at how orderly those books in the shelves are. And are those tags?



I love the variety! Also, the picture of Orlando Bloom on the cover is definitely eye-catching. Hehe.

He's got The House of the Scorpion! I've been looking for that everywhere. :(

Nice shelf. I have the same edition of LOTR. Don't have a copy yet of Hobbit. I don't really like Coelho now after reading that book Eleven Minutes. Just not my kind of read. But I'm very pleased to see The Giver there.

I actually moved my book shelves and all my books out to the garage to free up space. Now my loft has room to move, kids can play (quietly!), and wife can freely move back and forth. I'm writing better and feel the books were actually a distraction. Sounds weird. I know.

Wow, it's more orderly than my own. lol

So many books, so little shelf space.

By the way, I hope you don't mind me passing on an award to you.
Come over to my blog to pick it up. :)

HI Peter, I was thinking about highlighting your book shelf photo collection in a post later this month. It sort of complements the 'What's on your Desktop' meme that we've done before.

Peter S. said...

@Patrick: What is the House of Scorpions about?

@Stephen Tremp: Books are certainly a distraction. You just can't help stare at the covers and be reminded as to what the books are about.

@Jessica: Thank you, Jessica!

@Michael: Sure, Michael! Thanks!

@Peter: It's about a clone of a druglord who was created for replacement of body parts. It's a young adult sci-fi novel. I love young adult and sci-fi stuff. Hehe!

Peter S. said...

Hello, Patrick. Interesting. I'll go check that out. I also love YA! Although right now I'm staying clear of it for the meantime since I've been reading lots of YA for the past few months.

The House of the Scorpion is a good read! One of the better YA/Sci Fi books. I read it twice, and hope my son likes it when he's old enough to read it!

Stepford Mum said...

Lois Lowry's trilogy is fantastic too - The Giver, Gathering Blue and Messenger. I loved these and read them once every year or so.

Peter S. said...

Hello, Stepford Mum! I guess it's time for me to check that out.

Patrick said...

@Stepford Mum: A trilogy? Like their stories are related? I never knew that. I've only read The Giver.

@Peter: Yeah. Reading too much of the same genre can get really boring after a while. It's like the stories are all the same. Hehe. Thanks for the link up btw. I really need to work on the blogroll thing now. ^_^;

Peter S. said...

Hi Patrick. No problem. You're welcome. I do visit your blog regularly anyway.

Stepford Mum said...

Hi Patrick! The Giver and Gathering Blue do not seem related until you read the third in the "series", Messenger, which pulls them all together. The books stand alone though, they aren't like other series where you feel you must read the next or previous book. I have loved Lowry since I was a child though, so do look forward to reading all of her work. Her latest book "Gossamer" is still on my wishlist.

I loved Midnight Blue by Pauline Fisk, it's one of my favourite pre-teen/teen books I read. I read two of her other books, Telling the Sea and Tyger Pool. However Midnight Blue was my favourite!
