I was looking at my bookshelf today with my children’s books on it and I was delighted to see that the books were so well-loved! I can safely say that there is not one book that I have bought as an adult that is so well-read and falling apart at the seams! Either I don’t read enough as an adult or maybe I’m just reading the wrong things!!?
This is by no means all of my books but shows that they vary in age, style and subject matter. I have passed a lot of books on to others including my nephews – more from them another time! What’s on your bookshelf? Let me know in a comment below or share a picture!
“A bookshelf is as particular to its owner as are his or her clothes; a personality is stamped on a library just as a shoe is shaped by the foot.”
