Every time I see photos that have bookshelves in the background, I zoom in to try and read the titles, even if they have nothing to do with the subject of the photo. I haven’t often posted photos where my own collection is in the background but I have posted one recently and had comments that people wanted to see what was in the other bookcase. So I think this is a fairly common behaviour.
Sometimes it’s about seeing what books we recognise. Sometimes it’s wanting to discover some new-to-us book/series. Either way, it is often a compulsion that we book lovers can’t resist.
So I thought it would be fun to start a series sharing what is on my shelves. Both read and to be read. And because I do like a good alliteration, I thought I’d take it that geeky step further and share Fantasy Friday, Sci Fi Saturday, Murder and Mystery Monday.
I do have quiet an eclectic reading taste so the books on my shelves won’t all fit into these three categories. Those others will be random genres on random days.
I’m not promising that there will be a post every Fri, Sat and Mon, but I will be posting at least one a week. After all, my bookshelves are full and there are always more books on order.
If you have read any of the books/series/authors that are included in each spotlight post, I’d love to hear your thoughts on them. All of the posts will be spoiler free, and I’d encourage any discussion to also be spoiler free for those who might want to use these posts to discover new books to try.
