The bookshelf project #45

And we have another submission from one of the blog's readers! This week's photos of bookshelves are from Jouel. Let's see what books he has at home, shall we?

From what I can see, Jouel is a huge thriller fan. The top shelf has Stephen King, Jeffrey Archer, Ed McBain, and those Trese graphic novels by Budgette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo. I also spot one of my favorite novels—Bernhard Schlink's The Reader! Woot!

Looking at the rest of his shelves, we see more thrillers: novels by Ted Dekker, Greg Iles, Scott Turow, Robin Cook, Patricia Cornwell, Dean Koontz, Len Deighton, and Thomas Harris, to name a few. There are also the occasional YA (Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David Levithan and John Green) and a few classics (East of Eden by John Steinbeck).

I love hardcovers, so I love how most of Jouel's hardcovers are arranged at the bottom shelf. Hardcovers do pose a challenge in terms of portability, but they look awesome on one's shelf, yes?

And there's spillover! See below.

I guess this is the trade paperback and the mass market paperback section, no? Again, more thrillers, but we do get a glimpse of a couple of Oscar Wildes. And Iain Banks! And Cormac McCarthy!

Looking at Jouel's collection makes me want to head to the nearest book and get the latest suspense novel. Come to think of it, it's been a while since I read a really good thriller. Give me murders, police procedurals, legal battles, and medical mysteries now!

Ram, so sorry! I accidentally deleted your comment! This won't happen again! I guess this is what happens when I've just woken up and am still too drowsy to be fully functioning.

Anyway, you're welcome!
