We had an interesting discussion today, in the library where I work. One of our student assistants made the comment that he could tell a lot about a person by looking at their bookshelves. Interesting observation, I'd say.
From my shelves you could probably tell that I was a children's librarian for twelve years. I have several autographed picture books. On a lower shelf you'd find writing books, nature identification books and several Bibles. On some other shelves—yes I have more than one book case—you'd find poetry books, craft books, and some select fiction. And then there's the shelf with a few vintage beauties. I've collected books for years. I've passed some along to library sales, friends, and family. And I typically give books for gifts, because who doesn't love good books. Then there are the ones I receive in exchange for a fair review. I've found a way to feed my passion without paying big bucks! Thank goodness.
Now tell me, what would I find on your bookshelf? Mysteries? Sci-Fi? Inspirational books? How-to books? I'd love to know!
