It's Time to Browse My Keeper Cases! (Part Four)

Let's face it. Last week's look at the left side of my non-fiction keeper case was a bit boring even if you do like non-fiction. 98% of the books were about Arizona, and if you're not as enamored of this state as I am, those shelves were a big yawn.

You can see the entire bookcase in the "Keeper Case 2" photo, complete with my shelving stool in front of it. There's nothing quite like rolling up and down my row of To-Be-Read shelves to choose something to read or to shelve new acquisitions. (Must be the former librarian in me, although I never had a cool wheeled stool like that in the Moweaqua Public Library.)

This week, we're taking a look at the right side of the bookcase, but if you missed the left side, you can always backtrack to Part Three.

I've intentionally left the file sizes of the shelf photos large so you can manipulate them to see the book titles. (There's nothing worse than finding intriguing "shelfie" photos on a blog and discovering that you can't see the covers or titles because the photos are too small, right?)

Enough of this intro! Let's get to those shelves!

Shelf 1-- Mostly biographies.

Shelf 2-- Women's history and biographies.

Shelf 3-- Still mostly women's history with an oddball or two thrown in.

Shelf 4-- History and some Travel.

Shelf 5-- Architecture, Interior Design, Travel.

Shelf 6-- Histories of ancestral places and some "strays".

I think it's probably easy to tell which books are Denis's keepers, isn't it? To be completely honest, I still have three shelves here in the office that I haven't shared with you yet, but I'm planning a major reorganization, and any sharing will be off in the future.

What do you think? Did any of the books here surprise you? Did you see any that you'd like to read? Which ones? You know that inquiring minds are dying to find out!


  1. There is a lot to choose from though!

  2. Wow! You have such an interesting mix of books here, Cathy! I like it that you have so many travel and history books; I suppose it's because those are interests I have as well. I have to say, there was one juxtaposition that really caught my eye: your book on the Beatles right next the one on Victorian architecture. That really says something about the diversity of your reading!

    1. Welllll... that Beatles book belongs to Denis! LOL

  3. As I've said before, I don't read much non-fiction, but I like the look of your women's history books. Molly Brown - wow - that takes me back.

    1. I automatically think of Debbie Reynolds. Parts of my brain must be hijacked by Hollywood.

  4. There are quite a few 'old friends' on these shelves! Travel and maritime history are 2 of "my" subjects, too. And I found a few more titles that I will explore ...

    1. No fair! You didn't share any of your old friends or any of the new ones you're hoping to meet!

      By the way, I was thinking of you when I added the photo of the shelf that contained She Captains and Hen Frigates. :-)


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
