There ends Shelf Number 3 and on an epic note too.
I note that the theme of having at least one book per shelf with stories about animals, or small hairy creatures continues. And we see the start of my love of last century whodunnit authors. At one time I had the entire collection of Agatha Christie novels in hardback, but I have since divested myself of those.
I have to confess that at first I thought this would be a quirky, but interesting way for you to get an insight into my world. But now I have discovered a desire to set aside a pile of books for re-reading, finishing and in a couple of instances actually starting.
Hmmm. Maybe the next few book reviews might be Ex Libris.
And if you are keen to see the full list I have added my library to LibraryThing. You can search for me in the “Search users” box by the name Twoflour. Be warned, I haven’t tagged or rated everything yet, but I am planning to get there.
A big thanks goes to Vicky from Gone to the Dogs who mentioned LibraryThing in her post My night-time reading canon.
May you all have many happy hours reading.
