2020 Bookshelf Tour!!

HEY FRIENDS!!! I'm so excited about today's post. I'm finally going to do a bookshelf tour! I know these things are usually done in video form but I have SERIOUS camera anxiety so we just won't go there mkay? I plan to do another one of these at the beginning of 2021 so that I can see how much my shelves have changed in 12 months. Let's get this tour started!



2020 Bookshelf Tour


Main Bookshelf

I have two bookshelves. One is in our living room beneath our tv and the other is in mine and my husband's bedroom. The one in our room holds my most favorite books. 💜

My main bookshelf

This is my main bookshelf. It looks pretty empty right now and I'm super ok with that! If you start in the middle there are two thin shelves and then two larger shelves on either side. The shelf all the way to the right is my unread shelf. Those are all the books I own that I haven't read yet. It really helped to put the number of books I own into perspective. And it was really nice to see I have more read than unread books gracing my shelves.

This is the first bookshelf on the left. I've taken close up shots of each shelf and I'll list the books with links to Goodreads. All of these are books I've read.
