Look! I’m Stacked!

Not THAT kind of stacked. I mean book stacks and lots of them. Lisa over at Books Lists Life challenged us to share our stacks so here are mine. This first shot is the bookshelf that sits in the family room. It’s mainly used by the kids but the top shelf houses my TBRP (to be read pronto) list. I do a lot of my reading in the family room so that shelf keeps me honest. It’s organized from left to right in the order in which I must read them.

Note: That picture above the shelf is a portrait of my in-laws in Hawaii. They actually live about five miles from us but it was TAKEN in Hawaii. I digress…

This shot is a close-up of the top shelf. You may be wondering why they are sitting so far towards the front, but if I push them to the back, they fall into the “behind the bookshelf” chasm that is a pain to get to since I have to move the entertainment center which sits immediately to the right of it. Missing from this stack —The Danish Girl and Skeleton Creek because they are currently on my nightstand.

This is sort of a strange shot but it is half of the built-in bookshelf that is in our loft. The kids use the loft for DDR (Dance, Dance Revolution) and Wii stuff so I could not stand back far enough to get the entire shelf because doing so would guarantee an injury of some sort. About half of these books have been read already but have gained a permanent spot for one reason or another.

The books along the top are ones that have recently come in, or ones that I won that I have not gotten to yet. I have to go through these books to weed some stuff out to make room for the new stuff but I haven’t gotten around to it.

So there you have it! Although my actual shelves are not that organized, I have a TBR Pronto shelf on Goodreads that I use to keep track of my immediate reads. That really keeps me in line and it’s simple enough to update.

So, what do your stacks look like?

  1. Oh yes, those gaming areas do become something of a danger zone. I should keep some of my tbr books in the family which is where I do most of my reading, too. Sometimes I forget my current book up on my nightstand and I'm just too lazy to go get it. Like I live in a mansion and it's a really long walk–ha.

  2. Right on.. Love your stacks… Love your little "I'm Stacked…" I really should do this… I am almost a little embarrassed. LOL

  3. The loft looks great – I love built-ins. And it looks like you have a very fun picture gallery in there!

  4. Your shelves are more organized than mine are!

  5. Great post! I think I will show my stacks later this evening when I get home from work. Problem for me…a lot of my tbrp books are in crates!

  6. Thanks for playing, Ti. Your books look like they are wearing a little party hat. I always think I have a TBR Pronto list, but in reality I am easily swayed.

  7. From your comment yesterday I was expecting falling over towers of books and piles on the floor. ;-)

  8. I love your stacks! I'll have to write up this post over the weekend perhaps… I'll have lots of pics, we have 7 bookshelves in the house, I think… Thanks for sharing your pics!!

  9. Ooh, The Last Dickens, that sounds like a fabulous read!

    Your blog is fab as well!

  10. I loved getting a chance to see your bookshelves. I'm hoping to get some photos posted next week – this looks like a fun idea. (All the boys of the house are playing Rockband on the Wii right now, so I totally understand how that goes with all of the equipment.)

  11. Love your stacks…that title gave me a laugh, it could draw some interesting searches!! Your stacks are definitely more organized than mine. I still need more bookshelves to stack my books!

  12. Great title! And I'm glad I'm not the only one whose stacks lean!

  13. I'd have to give my stacks a little lift, er, straighten them out, er, tidy them up before I'd post a pic …

    And I can't believe you didn't get any spam followers on Twitter with that "look, I'm Stacked!" title!
