Sunday Shelves Feb 28 - A Look Around the Web

I am weirdly facinated by other people's bookshelves and why they arrange them how they do. I took this and created a weekly feature, Sunday Shelves. In this feature I highlight the bookshelves of different bloggers and readers.

This week I'm highlighting some shelves fellow bloggers have recently posted.

Misty over at The Book Rat has been posting pictures of her different colored shelves.  She groups books of the same color together.  The result is pretty cool! Check out her orignal post HERE.
Here's her purple shelf.  Doesn't it look cool??

Nicole of at WORD for Teens did a whole post about her TBR shelves.  You've got to see it! Lots of pics.  She her post HERE.

Valerie at I Should Be Writing has a really cool shelf she shared.  I'd love to have that one in my house! Check it out HERE.

Tynga at Tynga's Reviews has some great shelves as well.  You've got to see the pics.  Check it out HERE.

And lastly I found these shelves that I'd love to put in my house.  Aren't they cool??

As you can see I got the picture from a website called The Lavender Barn.  They have some really cool shelves.  I just love the thought of having a library big enough to need a ladder!


  1. Since I've moved this summer, I had the opportunity to sort out the books I wanted to take with me, and donate the rest. And now that I've got new shelves, I'm DYING to know how to organize them and make it look good, and not cluttered, so this is an awesome subject to post about! =D

  2. Great links. Now I've seen some of those, I don't feel quite so bad about my TBR pile (it's actually small in comparison).

    I would absolutely love bookshelves with a ladder. They even sell one in Ikea and I've daydreamed about getting it.

  3. I want those shelves! I could stand on that ladder all day and not get tired of it! How much is that bookcase? Probably thousands. Guess I'll have to get a bigger piggy bank!

  4. Thanks for linking to me! What a fun idea for a post. I love looking at bookshelves too.

  5. LOVE that shelf!
    LOVE Book Rat's color coded shelves :)

  6. I have always dreamed of one room filled with nothing but books shelves. My favorite room like that is in Henry Higgins house in the movie My Fair Lady

  7. That bookcase is gorgeous. And sorting books by color makes everything look so pretty!
