Guest Post: Book Opposites!

This month's guest post is just kind of a fun little subject - to take a break from the more "serious" book subjects we've been covering. Katherine and Hazel have joined me once more to answer some fun questions about book opposites! How this works is pretty self-explanatory: there is a series of questions we all answer. The books chosen for the categories are ones that we physically own. We have not borrowed them or own them on an eReader. This was inspired by a tag video Little Book Owl did on Youtube. So let's get started!

  1. Nice choices! :D And now I feel guilty for having such messy bookshelves I can't find anything on. I need to reorganize them soon. It's getting to the point where I can't remember all the books I have and which ones I need to read.

    1. Thanks! :) Though alphabetical by author's last name is nice - especially with how many books I have, - I'm seriously reconsidering how to reorganize my shelves. Don't know how I will, though. ;) Keeping track of the books I have, I actually have a catalog of all my books, and I make my family write down books they take from my collection in a ledger. I also highlight the books in my catalog that I haven't read yet.
