books.. books.. & more books

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Yesterday I got this in the mail, and was so excited to have received it! Thank you again to Amelia of Imagination in Focus for hosting such a great giveaway. The price was for a book of choice worth up to $20. I chose Where Books Fall Open: A Reader's Anthology of Wit and Passion -- a book about books, about the pleasures, passions & rewards of reading, about authors who are dedicated to the act of writing and readers who are devoted to the joys of words in the right order. Funny, moving, and beautiful, it features an eclectic selection from some of the world's finest writers, as well as sixteen full-color paintings by artist and editor Bascove.

As for other book-ish things..

Just finished: The Book Shop by Penelope Fitzgerald and What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell
  • Reviews for both will be coming up :)
About to start: About a Boy by Nick Hornby

And for random news?

I decided the books in my room are getting out of control! So today, I am going to get three baskets at the store. They will serve as 'containers' for them, and will be separated into three different groups; Read, To Be Read, and To Be Returned.
Have you ever done anything like this? If not, how did you keep all your books organized?

Happy Reading!

  1. I always tell myself I'm going to get my bookshelf organized, but it never quite happens--I do wish I could, though. I can never seem to find a book when I need it. Your system seems like it will work well, though-good luck!
