OCD About Books? You Bet! #amwriting

Am I the only one who gets a tad OCD about her favorite books? I have now created my very own “Still Life with Crows” on the shelf directly over my monitor. Every time I look up, I’m reminded of how much I love the Pendergast books. And crows. And then I continue typing, much inspired. Silly? Possibly. But it makes me happy, and what’s better than being hard at work with a smile on your face?  

BTW, the two books on the right of this little tableau are Leigh Bardugo’s duology, Six of Crows & Crooked Kingdom, two huge favorites of mine, too. How could I resist adding those gorgeous crow covers to my little vignette? I couldn’t. And I highly recommend using your favorite books in creative ways around your work space, too. It really is inspirational. That’s my story, an’ I’m stickin’ to it! 😀

Have a great afternoon and an even greater weekend, folks! ❤

#Bookshelves, As Promised!

Here are a few clever and interesting bookcases for you to admire. Or copy.  🙂

Here’s a clever way to fit bookshelves into smaller rooms, or where wall space is limited.


Another idea for where wallspace might be limited…or already filled with other bookcases. (Where you find these honkin’ big stone steps, I haven’t a clue!)


How about something a tad more creative? Is this fun, or what?


The perfect bookshelf for those of us who REALLY like things lined up just so!


Bookshelves needn’t be expensive to be clever and fun.


How about a bookshelf with a view?


Or a bookshelf you can sit in?



And finally, a bookshelf that’s really NOT, but reminds you of your favorite books every time you head upstairs. If we were still in our two-story house, I would SO do this!


Hope you enjoyed today’s Bookish Images post! Tomorrow, bookish quotes I love.
