Bookshelfie, Bookporn and Bookstagram.
Confession time: I have a thing about bookshelves.
I have 7 of them, scattered about my house. I’ve wasted hours organising them. I tried sorting my books by colour, by author surname, topic and height. Some systems worked better than others – the height one was a complete disaster, because half the books fell off the shelf. Now, I just try and remember where a book is located. Usually, I know.
Bookshelves are big on instagram and tumblr – just check out the #bookstagram and #bookporn hashtags. I love the way folk share pictures of their shelves; it makes me feel a lot less weird.
If you’re a bookworm like me, here are seven images of Bookshelf Porn for you to enjoy. None of these photos are my own (alas!), but I’ve put links and further information in the picture captions to the originals.
One thing’s for sure: a bookworm can never have too many books!
Feel free to check out my instagram feed – although be warned, I rarely post my own #bookshelfies. Because my bookshelves are just not as pretty as the ones here.
