#TheShelfieHop hosted by My Friends are Fiction & BookEmoji!!!


Hello there guuuuys!!

I'm so beyond excited to take part of the first ever #TheShelfieHop hosted by the very awesome Kristen from My Friends Are Fiction and Crystal from Bookiemoji!!

What's a shelfie hop you might be asking? Well, it's a chance to share pics of our beloved shelves with all our books!! Or, in my case... a chance to post work-in-progress of my library room!!

I moved to my apartment on September 1st, and I had hoped to have advanced more on my library room (and other rooms too) but given that most shelves are huge and need two people to assemble, I need to wait till my bro or nephews have time off at the same time I do so they can come help... and that's rare!

So here goes!! Pics of my library room IN PROGRESS!!



That's currently the only shelf I have assembled! It's quite big and books can be stacked on double!



There you can see how solitary the poor shelf is feeling right now!



Right next to that shelf will go another just like it, that is somewhere in those boxes along with another two more shelves and the reading lamp, awaiting assembly!

And a small puff to sit, my phone and routers that also need somewhere to put them other than the floor, but I still need to buy something, although I already have it picked... next paycheck!



That's the space for two more narrower but taller shelves that are also awaiting assemply in that pile of boxes you've already seen!





And here's a closer look at the very few books that are on the shelf. They're the ones I had on a particular TBR pile for a challenge or even October, re-reads, that were not in boxes or that have arrived at the new address!

And you can also see Morrigan and Mini-maug there! Not their permanent home, but their place for now!


I have loads of plans still for my library room, but it's slow work and a lot of money, so I have to take it slowly! Once all the shelves are assembled and all the books sorted, I will get a divan/day bed so I can spend hours on end reading there!

And obviously once it's all done, I'll make a post on the blog sharing ALL THE PHOTOS!!


Now, I'm not the only one sharing pics of her shelves, and I'm sure most of the rest of my fellow book lovers will have finished shelves with many more books and less IKEA boxes, so go check them out!!
