I am just a girl who loves reading and talking about books

I love looking at other people’s bookshelves and seeing the neat little rows of books and the amazing designs of the shelves. I have never really owned a bookshelf. Growing up, my parents had a small one but living on my own, I have always had my books piled up on the floor.I used to love watching the pile grow.
After my house was burglarized and all my books stolen in 2014, I started collecting books again although reluctantly due to the fear of losing them again. The collection that was stolen had books that I had acquired over years and all my favorite reads including some autographed copies. My current book collection is very small but at least the books are now off the floor.

I hope to one day own a beautiful bookshelf or even better, a personal library,a room full of books. In the meantime, I can only drool at these bookshelf designs that I found online.
