Exploring My Bookshelves

Here’s how it works:

  1. Take a “shelfie” (a picture of your bookshelf). Preferably literal, but e-shelves work too. Here are mine:
    Exploring My Bookshelves 2016
  2. I’ll give you something about your shelf to write about. It might be your favourite cover, your favourite author, your book you most recently bought etc
  3. Then give us the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it)
  4. And finally, come back to my post and send us a link! I promise to check out all of your posts!

This will be a weekly post on a Friday. Either me or my co-host Shannon @ For the Love of Words post the prompts here, ideally by a Monday (in case you’re super organised).

And once you’ve participated, feel free to add this to your post:
