January 28 was #libraryshelfie day. A day to celebrate books, reading and your own precious bookshelves. Here at Fantasy Book Review a bunch of us reviewers got out our camera phones and snapped our pride and joy, the number one bookcase, containing all those books we have read and loved over the years.
The celebration was carried out on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ but it was so much fun, and the images so memorable, that we have brought everything together in this post.
As the day began we found ourselves in Australia with three long-time reviewers, Josh, Ryan and Fergus (who is a Northern Irishman living abroad).
As you can see, Josh loves his books and he is deservedly proud of them!
Impressed by the organisation, UK reviewer Michelle tweeted her own three mighty bookshelves.
Staying in Australia but moving into black-and-white photography Fergus shows his incredibly neat, tidy (and if rumour is true, alphabetised) bookshelves.
And Ryan shows his horizontal approach to book stacking. I will quiz him about this next time we speak – there will be reasoning behind his actions.
Next we visited travelswithadiplomat in Thailand, and the crate full of classics he takes everywhere with him.
At this time a great photo came in from @jankensan on Twitter, who is studying abroad in Japan.
Back in a chilly, snow crusted UK we were treated to Cat’s fantasy books within a lovely old bookcase.
And I got to show off my favourite book shelf, guarded by the terrifying Bagpuss.
And then @DanMoran89 won the not-so-tidy bookshelf award.
Jo unveiled her Terry Pratchett shrine.
Before her Zen Pencils framed art proved to be the most popular tweet of the day.
And then, as dusk began to fall, we welcomed our latest reviewer Sam Wood and her extremely heavy looking bookcases.
And @RRakato42 posted us this lovely #libraryshelfie to bring the day to a perfect end.
I would just like to thank all who took part in our #libraryshelfie celebration. It’s good to love books.
