Despite all my fawning over the library, I do actually own SOME books. Sometimes I like to just sit down in front of my bookcase and flick through the pages, especially in the ones I haven't gotten around to reading yet. A while ago I got to thinking about what your bookcase says about you. Clothing and decor choices both reflect our personalities, but somehow our reading material seems much more personal - who can tell from looking at me that Danny Wallace and Christopher Paolini are among my favourite authors, despite being totally different genres? That I eat up local history books, especially the ones with old pictures taken in the places I walk by daily? That I'm more likely to reread a series of books rather than a stand alone novel?
Here's what's on my bedside table right now - my new five year journal (with questions, so I'm not just writing 'went to work, talked about Downton Abbey with my boss and had crisps for lunch' day after day...), my friend's favourite book and my inspiring minimalist book. And 'The Power of Now', which someone told me to read years ago and I still can't get through...
Has anyone else done a similar post? Or want to share your essential reads? I love nosing at other peoples bookshelves!
