It occurred to me recently that I can't be the only bibliophile who's jonesing for a book browsing fix. Unfortunately, our favorite hangouts like bookstores and libraries are closed to us during this pandemic. How can book lovers stay safe yet still get to wander through shelf after shelf of lovely, lovely books?
How about a virtual browse?
I know it's not as good as the real thing, but it couldn't hurt to give it a try, right? To this end, I'm willing to let you browse my own To-Be-Read shelves (ever afterward referred to as TBR). You can see what this mystery lover has on her shelves, come across new-to-you books and authors, and wonder why in the world haven't I got any of ____________'s books on my shelves.
I've kept the file sizes on all these photos intentionally large so that you can manipulate them to see whatever you want to see on whatever device you use. I'll have you know that I personally (and all by my lonesome) put together all the shelves you see in the photo back in the 1980s after I bought this house. If you look all the way down to the end, you can just barely see a table. That's the table from the craft room. I love it, not only because it's such a good size and very useful but because it also folds in half which makes it extremely versatile. (Yes, I put the table together, too. I'm a huge fan of flat-pack furniture.)
I'll share my TBR with you, one bookcase at a time, but until I see how you're going to react to this, today, I'm just going to share one shelf with you: the one TBR here in the office. It usually houses the newest additions or ones I've moved in from the living room to remind me that I really want to read them ASAP. Let's take a look!

Remember, you can click or tap or whatever it is you do to enlarge the photo so you can actually read the titles and authors. If you can't quite tell what a specific book is, leave a comment saying something like "Cathy, what's that book that's the fourth from the left?" and I'll tell you. Easy peasy.
What say you? Any books here that you've read? Any books that you want to read? Any books that surprised you? Talk to me! You know that inquiring minds are dying to know!
And... now that you've got a taste, do you want to browse the rest of my TBR? Let me know!
