Shelf Life

Yesterday I posted about my lovely library of yore. Each day this week, I'm going to share a close-up picture of each shelf and gush about its contents. Today, behold the beloved top shelf. 

Left to Right: My Jane Austen Collection from Easton Press. It just may be the pride (heh) and joy of my entire book collection. So far, I've read Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, and Persuasion. I've yet to read Northanger Abbey or Emma. I'll eventually get to them when the mood is right.

Top to Bottom: Assorted leather-bound copies of classics: Far From the Madding Crowd, Crime & Punishment, Dracula, The Good Earth, Life with Father, Twice-Told Tales, and The Red Badge of Courage. And I've yet to read any of these, either!

Clearly, I need to make time for these gorgeous books. They're all languishing away on my Book Bucket List, and they deserve so much better than that. I think I may make it a goal this summer to read at least half of the unread books from this shelf. 

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, I owned my own library...

...And it was glorious. I had an entire room dedicated to all of my beautiful books. I spent hours in there, organizing, reorganizing ('cause playing with books is my idea of fun), and just simply gazing at them. Lovingly.

Then, life happened, and I moved away to pursue my dream job. Sadly, sacrifices had to be made, and now most of my books are in storage. But I did take pictures of the epicness that was my personal library to immortalize it forever.

I was feeling nostalgic today, and as I flipped through all of the pictures, I thought maybe they are worth sharing here.

I'm going to share more close-up pictures of the shelves from this tower every day this week to relive my glory days. Plus, everyone loves a good #bookshelfie.
