Coming Soon: Strut Your Shelves

Very soon you will see a regular feature on this blog, a feature I'm calling "Strut Your Shelves". This is where you, my wonderful readers, get to show off your shelves. Yes...bookshelves. As a reader, and I'm sure your like me in this regard, I love looking at other people's bookshelves. When I walk into a room that has a bookshelf, that's what gets my attention first. I also believe that most bookshelves represent their owners. Do they have mostly mystery or fiction? Is there a section on birds or dogs? Is there any kind of order to the books or does it seem random? Are the shelve's messy or neat? Do the shelve's look like a book lover lives there or are they just for show? So many questions!

What this feature is for, is for bloggers and blog readers to show off their shelves. Send me a picture of your shelves...either a specific one you want to show or multiple ones. Tell me a little about it. How is it organized or isn't it organized? What books do you keep on this specific bookcase? Is there a story behind the bookshelves/bookcase?

Here's how I cam up with this idea. I'm a follower of Kittling: Books and I love her Scene of the Blog feature. I also noticed that anytime somebody sends her a picture of the place they blog and there are bookshelves, I'm always looking at them. Based on the comments that others leave, I know I'm not the only one. I thought it would be fun to have a regular feature where we get to look at each other's bookshelves/bookcases. Sound like fun? It does to me and I hope it does to you as well.

Later this week I'll show off my bookcase. You've probably seen it before, when I showed pictures of my library. However I'm going to show you pictures again and also tell you how I came to be in possession of the library cabinets and why they books look the way they do. I sure hope you'll come back later in the week to see it.

I also hope that you will enjoy this feature and contact me to be featured! Please do contact me! I hope you want to participate and show your shelves as well! You don't have to have a blog in order to participate, you only have to be a reader.
