Weekly Geeks #7 - Photos 'n' Books

This is my first WG post, not for lack of trying. Dewey, over at The Hidden Side of a Leaf, hosts this gathering and always has some interesting theme for the week. This is photo week - posting bookish-type photos.



Since I already posted some whimsical photos of my TBR (to be read) shelf last week, I thought I'd continue that theme and post a couple more.

Most of my TBR books are packed away because of the studio re-do, but I've saved out a shelf's worth, 'cause you just never know what you might want to read next. I have new bookshelves sitting at the furniture store warehouse waiting for me to say the word, which will be after the new floor is installed, which is still unknown. So in the meantime, here's where one of my new bookshelves will be:


Nice, isn't it? It'll take up that whole wall and another on the other side of the window. The guitars will have to move.

Now, since I seem to be having problems getting to the two Early Review books I'm supposed to be reading, I've come up with a solution for the TBR shelf so I won't be tempted by enticing titles:




Here's a little peek at some of what's on that shelf. (If you click the photo you can actually read some of the enticing titles.)

For some other interesting and fun geekblog photos, visit Debra at Reading Animals, or Bookchronicle (look for the cat on the shelf!) or the Bibliobrat (some people are just TOO neat!)

I love your solution to temptation! I may have to implement that myself. lol

LOL, the backwards books actually made me guffaw. I think I need to try that!

Debra Durham said...

Thanks for the link - and the great tip for taming TBR temptations. (The books from the TBR pile are winking at me, I swear!)

I love the photo of the blank wall and the backwards books. That is classic...

Terrific idea turning those books around! Perhaps I'll have to give it a go on my own TBR stack to inject some randomness.

What a great idea!

I have the tenderness of wolves and the secret river on my TBR shelf too

Haha. I love that you turned the books around so they're less tempting. Maybe I should try that too.
From your TBR pile, I'm reading The Tenderness of Wolves right now. So far so good.

That's a great solution to reading temptation! I get distracted by my TBRs sometimes too.

My solution to not being enticed by all my tbr books is to double shelve them - then I can only see half of them - not as good as your idea though!

The Tenderness of Wolves is currently in my 'lmost there' bit of my TBR pile, as it's been longlisted for a Crime Writing Prize over here.

I also noticed Ian McEwans Attonement in there, if you're interested, another one of his I can recommend is 'On Chesil Beach'

Terri said...

Thanks Jo - I read On Chesil Beach last summer, it was my first McEwan, I liked it a lot AND it was very different!

LOL love that you have turned your books round, excellent idea.
