@places_and_books - Andy reads a lot | OK, whose bright idea was this? πŸ€”
😁
After posting a list of my favourite 100 books on my blog (link in bio) I wondered why I've never done a series of posts on them. Well now I know two reasons: πŸ€”
😁
1. The list keeps changing as I read brilliant new books. πŸ“š
❀
2. The biggy - trying to find one hundred specific books out of two thousand spread across eight different bookshelves - phew what a job! - and hoping I haven't lent out any important ones. πŸ™ˆ
πŸ“š
Believe it or not there is order to these piles. Expect to see a ten-at-a-time countdown of my favourite books soon... although I'm already finding issues in there. Why no Orwell? And why did I pick that Hardy? And where's Woolf!! And what about poetry and autobiographies?!
πŸ“š
πŸ™ˆ
What bright ideas have you had recently?

@ancienthistorykc You've got some.classics in there and everyone enjoys a good war story, however, i found game of thrones hard to finish i felt i was reading or wading thru thick mud
places_and_books
@places_and_books He could have certainly done with some better editing as the books went on! @ancienthistorykc the first few were excellent though πŸ“šβ€οΈ

donaldelevy
@donaldelevy It wasn't my idea, lol. i'm always changing my top ten books of all time.
pagesandcup
@pagesandcup I can't believe you actually know the number of books you own. i've lost track and don't have the desire to start keeping track now. πŸ˜†
places_and_books
@places_and_books My top ten stays fairly stationary @donaldelevy (fairly)😎
places_and_books
@places_and_books Its an educated guess😎 @pagesandcup it may actually be 1800 or 2100. i could count them i suppose. might take a while...
artcraftinspiration
@artcraftinspiration I have so many books too and when i get them out it's a full days jib to sort them and put them back on the shelves. 😁 i will take a photo one of these days
artcraftinspiration

@thesistersread I'm preparing to reorganize my classics shelf as it's overflowing and i need to somehow find space for new books!! it will probably look similar to these piles for a while! πŸ˜„ -s
places_and_books
