Exploring My Bookshelves: Sprautumn

You’re probably wondering what exactly happened with my title, well this week’s thing is about Spring but of course it’s Autumn for me! So I’m mashing the two together and we’re going to see what happens. Exploring My Bookshelves is a weekly meme co-hosted by Shannon @ For The Love of Words and Victoria @ Addlepates and Book Nerds. Each week we’re given a new theme and we get to talk about one book that relates to it.

Exploring My Bookshelves: Family

I’m finally back with another Exploring My Bookshelves. I haven’t participated over the last couple of weeks because I’ve been busy doing other things and this just sort of didn’t happen. But I’m back, so that’s good. Exploring My Bookshelves is a weekly meme co-hosted by Shannon @ For The Love of Words and Victoria @ Addlepates and Book Nerds. Each week we’re given a new theme and we get to talk about one book that relates to it. It’s good fun and sort of like speed-dating someone’s bookshelf.

Exploring My Bookshelves: Don’t Drop It!

A Book You Don’t Want to Read for Risk of Damaging It

I actually found this a little tricky to think of a book for this because I don’t own many ‘precious’ books that I’m terrified to touch. Almost every book I read I’m careful not to damage – and when I spill something on a book or break its spine I have nightmares for days. But for the most part I’m pretty careful with my books. HOWEVER. I do have one book that is probably the most beautiful thing you’re going to see this week that I NEVER it read outside of the house – in fact I’d quite like to invest in one of those little metal sticks to turn the page with for it.
