Hi Everyone - and Happy Wednesday!
Yesterday I treated myself to an outing in Sheffield, fully intending to raid every bookshop I could find and do a picture post for you showcasing all my new treasures. Unfortunately, NONE of the books I wanted were in stock and so I went home empty handed. *Sob*
Seeking consolation last night, I started sifting through my TBR pile, and it occurred to me that I've never shown you guys just how many books I own which I haven't yet read. And so - a pictorial tour of my TBR pile!
This is the consolidated version, including the pile from my coffee table, the pile by my bed, and the pile from the writer's cave:
These are the books which have either been given to me by Walker Books when I was visiting them in London (they have this basement. There are floor to ceiling shelves of books. Shelves and shelves that go on forever. It's some kind of crazy bookworm HEAVEN), or else were sent to me by my lovely editor Annalie because she thought I would like them. There were originally a LOT more of these. I've been steadily working through them.
These are the books which friends talked me into buying - sometimes by giving glowing reviews, other times by literally forcing them on me. I once made the mistake of going book shopping with two members of my online writing group. They kept pulling things off the shelves and saying 'You must have this. And this. Oh - and this!' I went home with £68 worth of books. Darn you, Ferret and Roccie! I lived on bread and jam for a fortnight!
Finally, these books are the ones I am responsible myself, but still haven't managed to get around to yet.
