Monday Memes


Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
Today's question:
Do you need to have your owned books out where you can see them, or are you okay with them being stored away?

My answer:
I definitely need to be surrounded by my books.  In my reading room, I have a bookcase filled with my personally signed and tbr books and another bookcase with my recently read books.  Being a self proclaimed book addict, there is such a feeling of "comfort" of being among the items that I enjoy and bring me pleasure and entertainment.

July is being hosted by Gwen from A Sea of Books
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

I just finished One Summer over the week-end, I can't wait to read your review, I personally loved the book, but we are different in our reading genres. So I await your review.

I love having my books especially my unread books on bookshelves, here in my little Reading Corner.

Reading Room?!! I am so jealous. I want a room devoted to reading. Okay so I would still be reading everywhere. I still want the room!!! LOL

What a great mailbox. I can't wait to hear what you think of them. As for the reading room - I'm green with envy :)

Come on over and see what was in my mailbox this week!

Oh, I wouldn't want mine stored either!! I've heard One Summer is quite a departure for Baldacci. Enjoy!

The Things we Cherished was a pretty good read, not stellar but still very good. Have a great week and enjoy your new reads, Cheryl!

Another varied set of books my dear. Of course the one with the corset is the one I love most ;)

I really want to read The Things We Cherished and One Summer. I really enjoyed Pam Jenoff's other books. I have heard One Summer is really good too. Enjoy your books, Cheryl!
