31 Days of Books

31 Days of booksOctober has officially started, and if you didn’t already know it, I believe it to be the best time of the year. Pumpkins, football, sweaters, the leaves changing colors – what’s not to love about this time of year?! (Also, it’s my birthday month, which pretty much makes it perfect. And yes, I celebrate the entire month. 😉 )

I’m doing something a little different this month, in the hopes that it gets me into posting on a more regular basis. I’ve seen the 31 Day Writing Challenge floating around on social media/blogs/Facebook pages, and I was curious enough to do a little investigating, and when I realized it didn’t have to be about anything specific, I thought, “Why not?!”

Of course, in typical fashion, I had that thought this afternoon, instead of a few weeks ago, when I could have had more time to better prepare myself. But I don’t think it’ll be that much of an issue.

Of course it would need to be about books! That’s what the primary use of this blog was supposed to be (though I’m not opposed to it morphing in different directions on occasion). I’m sure I can come up with 31 different things to post about.

ShelvesFor the first post, I figured, I’d keep it simple. Behold – here is my bookshelf! Well, only one of my bookshelves.

I have a second one that is smaller in size (think half the size of this one) that goes from floor to ceiling directly on the opposite wall of this one, and a third one that was built similar to this one in my main bedroom. Mostly this third one is being used for storage at the moment, but there is currently an entire shelf on that one dedicated to the books I’ve read thus far this year. I’ve been trying to keep track of those with reviews and such (and believe me, some of these entries will probably involve reviews).

I hadn’t intended to put all of my books on this bookshelf, at least not until this year was closer to being over, but in light of attempting to blog 31 days about books, I’m thinking that I might try and get all of the books I still have that aren’t put away in their forever home yet up here somewhere. I think I will aim for a completed and up-to-date bookshelf picture for my last post of this month.

Of course, something else to keep in mind, is that this is my own personal view and opinion about books. I am thankfully not the end-all, be-all when it comes to them, though. I don’t think there can ever be anyone who knows EVERYTHING about ALL THE BOOKS. And that is part of the beauty of this topic.

  1. This 31 Day writing challenge seems cool can it be about anything? 🙂 love your style of writing too you gained yourself a reader x

    • Hi, thanks for stopping by, and the compliment on my writing! 🙂 As far as I know, you can choose anything to write about, so if you have the time and an idea, I say go for it! 🙂

      Thanks again!

  2. I have absolutely no doubt that you can find 31 things to say about books. 🙂

    I won’t be jumping on this bandwagon, though– if there’s anything I need to make sure I do for the next 31 days straight, it’s sewing! I have a barely cut-out winter coat that needs to be made asap because (insert Game of Thrones reference here), and I got suckered into doing a sewing project for a friend at church that needs to happen before Halloween. Yikes!
