But the thing that blew me away was the number of books I had! I was amazed at how many books were crammed on my poor sagging bookshelf.
Then there were the books that represented the different interests I have had throughout the years. A book on yoga poses was shelved next to a book on Barbie collectibles. Next to them were a couple of diet books. Although most of my craft books are in my sewing room, a couple of quilting books found their way onto this shelf. On one shelf I found the upper elementary/young adult fiction purchased while I was a literacy coach to help me become familiar with what the "big kids" were reading. There were several books I read during a time when I was trying to get in touch with my spiritual side. I like to read series books or related titles by an author so I had a shelf filled with the Mitford series by Jan Caron, the quilt series by Jennifer Chiaverini and the historical fiction of Philippa Gregory. That shelf also housed my "guilty pleasure" books- all of my Nora Roberts and other romance paperbacks!

Now, I'm back to my cleaning or I won't be able to sleep in my bed tonight!
