I was really busy these last few weeks as we were moving to a new house. A new house that we bought – yayy! our first real house as all the houses we have stayed in so far have been rented 🙂
And along with that my dream of having some great bookshelves also came true.
I bought two bookshelves and was able to arrange all the books that I own on them. More than 50% of the books that I own are in India but still this is a good collection of books I guess. All the books on my right shelf are read and those on the left shelf are unread (mostly). I also got myself some cute funko pops as props for my bookshelves. I also went on a book buying spree this year just because I was going to have these bookshelves. I think I bought more books this year than I did collectively in the last 4-5 years.
I am especially in love with my Harry Potter shelf as I have the entire collection of Harry Potter funko pops – all the characters that I love in those books are on my shelf. I am already running of space to keep the books but still love the shelves. I love collecting books even more than reading them. Some people collect stamps, some collect coins and I collect books. 🙂 I mostly own books that I loved reading and have been periodically unhauling books that I will not reread or did not enjoy reading.
This year, I mostly bought books by searching for a book with a good cover and also for a good edition. All these years I never paid attention to the cover or the edition and would just buy books randomly as long as they were cheap.
Do you have a collection of books too? If so, where do you keep your books?
