Exploring My Bookshelves: Stacks of My Favorite Nonfiction Books

“Exploring My Bookshelves” is a weekly meme created by Victoria at Addlepates and Book Nerds. Since Victoria is on vacation, I’m following along with Shannon at For the Love of Words since she has created her own topics.

How it works:
  1. Take a “shelfie” (a picture of your bookshelf). Preferably literal, but e-shelves work too.
  2. Write something on the day’s prompt.
  3. Give the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it).
  4. Link back to Victoria’s post.

“20 Bookshelf Decorating Ideas” — Decoist

Idea #15: Paint the back wall of your bookshelf.

Well here is one article that I am sure to store away until I can get my own apartment.

Decoist is an interior design and architecture blog and judging from the great decoration ideas that are provided in this article, I am sure to return for more tips (especially when I get my apartment).

I love collecting books (say No! to e-readers) and I plan to one day own bookshelves on which all of my books can comfortably sit instead of having to  squeeze and squish together (as they are now), or just chill out on my bedroom floor. I only have one bookcase and because of the overflow of books, it looks pretty messy and ugly.

I would like to own a bookcase that shows off my books. That’s why I like Idea #15 here. I can get a simple bookcase and paint the back wall of it in a color that will cause my books to pop. There’s no way visitors would be able to avoid looking at them. My visitors will be transfixed by my bookcase, drawn in by the color, and will walk over to admire my collection.

Anyways, you can check out the other 19 ideas here.
