Know Thy Shelf | 04

Hi, folks!

This is post number four of a series of photos documenting my bookshelves.  I thought it would be interesting to create a meme/tag for it, so I am calling this series/meme/tag #knowthyshelf:

1) Book from this shelf you would save in an emergency:
  • Diários, by Al Berto, edited by Golgona Anghel (2012)
2) Book that has been in this shelf for the longest time:
  • The Collected Prose, by Elizabeth Bishop, edited by Robert Giroux (1984)
3) Newest addition to this shelf:
  • The Christine Brooke-Rose Omnibus: Four Novels: Out, Such, Between, Thru, by Christine Brooke-Rose (2007)
4) Book from this shelf you are most excited to read or reread:
  • A Manual for Cleaning Women, by Lucia Berlin, edited by Stephen Emerson (2015)
5) Any poetry books?

And now a question for you:
8) What does this shelf tell YOU about ME as a reader?

Fellow blogger Deborah Rose Reeves joined in the meme, and posted two of her shelves on her blog and on her Instagram account. It was lovely to read about her bookshelves.

Feel free to do this tag, too! As always, I’d love to peruse your bookshelves 🙂

Yours truly,
