Morning Meanderings: We Are Off To See The Author!!!


Good morning.  What a week and it has not ended yet.  I have a full morning and then a friend from Book Club and I are going to the cities to have dinner with Sandra Brannon and then go to her book event at Magers and Quinn Booksellers.  While I am tired now, I suspect as the time draws nearer I will get more and more excited.  😀

For Saturday Snapshot today I was hoping to have pictures for you of my new and finished book shelves – but no, while the racks are up… the shelves are not.  So… I will show you before and current state… and next week, hopefully the finished look.

One end of the book room before… (do not judge…) 🙂



Another section of the room




After I emptied the room….



And now, the beginning phases:

I am excited to get the shelves up and start organizing books!  😀 

Ok, final thing this morning…. winners from the BBAW week:

The Gods Of Gotham :  Lindsey from Literary Lindsey!!!

Seconds Away by Harlan Coben audio Elizabeth from Silver’s Reviews!!!

Night Road by Kristin Hannah:  Joys from Joys Book Blog!

  1. Yes! I love organizing book rooms. I just did an overhaul on mine and I must say it’s looking very spiffy. I can’t wait to see your finished product . . . you will post pictures, yes?

  2. You’re going to LOVE all those shelves. Can’t wait to see it when you have your books up.

    Happy weekend, Sheila!

  3. waaaaa! I want a room of my own!!!!! I love you Sheila – I can show these to my hubby and say, “see, there is someone with more books than me!” So thank you my book-sister!

  4. I’ve already commented on the before picture on Twitter so I won’t repeat it here. 🙂

    It looks like the “after” is going to be really, really good. Looking forward to seeing that!

  5. Looking good! I’m sure it will be amazing once you finish it. I have plans to cover one of our office walls with bookshelves, I just haven’t fit it into the budget yet. Enjoy yours!

  6. My mouth is hanging open, Sheila! (trying not to drool on my laptop!)

    Wow, I thought I had a lot of books! Now are all of these TBR or are some keepers? Wow.

    I can’t wait to see the after photos! I am just so impressed that you even emptied the room – lol!


  7. That’s going to be a nice book room. I’m envious! I should get my act together — and get my books out of bins downstairs. Like I’m still in move in mode — 4 years later. I sort of dream about built in bookcases! cheers.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
