#Shelfies for World Book Day

Where Dylan Hearn at Suffolk Scribblings leads, others follow…

In honour of World Book Day, I present… a series of #shelfies which will probably tell you far too much.  I’ve posted fiction #shelfies before, so here’s a glimpse at the non-fiction in my bookcase.  I may live to regret this…

(1) The ‘How To’ Shelf: Here’s a nice, easy one to start with.  It’s the shelf that every writer has, right? How to write, how to write better, how not to write, how to find an agent, how to get published, how to stimulate your creativity, how to develop a writing habit, how to write like Stephen King, and so, so, so on.

2015-03-05 17.16.56(2) Food, not-so Glorious Food: Were you expecting recipe books?  Nope. This is my food paranoia shelf. It’s a combination of aversion therapy and the expression of a hope, that, one day, I might do more than read about dieting.

2015-03-05 17.16.32(3) Why, oh Why: This is my psycho-paranoia / please love me shelf. In my defence, this used to occupy three shelves, now, just the one, most of which I keep for posterity and to remind me that despite everything, I’m a warm and wonderful woman, alright? Alright?  ‘Nuff said.

2015-03-05 17.17.14(4) The rest… is fiction: I’m a writer, but I’m a reader too. See any you recognise from your own shelves?

2015-03-05 17.17.59Do you have a World Book Day #shelfie to share?  If you do, feel free to do a pingback here, or check out Dylan Hearn’s post, and the source of the original WBD #shelfie: Suzie81 Speaks, where I can see we have Bryson, Hornby and Haddon in common.

  1. Looks much like my house except I also have shelves of English literature, history and garden books! If only I had the time to read them all : )

  2. I can’t read many of the titles on your shelves because my near vision is miserable in my contacts. But I bet there are books we share. I love that you organize your shelves. Mine are kind of nilly-willy.
