TGIF & Book Blogger Hop

TGIF! 
It's time for a couple of my favorite weekly link ups! The first is The Book Blogger Hop hosted by: Jennifer @ Crazy-for-Books

Today's Q:
What's the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can't?

My Answer:
I wish I could get into more NON-FICTION books. Sometimes I really feel like I should be educating my mind with some FACTS and TRUE stories but I have a had time getting into them. I prefer imaginary worlds and characters.







Ginger @ GReads is asking today in her TGIF link-up: 

Bookshelf Tour: Where do you keep your books at home? Are they organized?

My Answer:

I keep my books in baskets & containers in my bedroom - and sadly they are not organized. They just end up where ever they will "fit" or wherever they end up where I toss them. One day I would like to have a wonderful book shelf (which I would either organize by the size of the book or in alphabetical order). Here's some of my favorite bookshelves that I day dream about having:  

Ok...i understand this may be a little MUCH for a house...but it's cute! 

This is very clean looking. I can tolerate this! 

This is nice looking too. I'd love to have this {3 photos via}


Happy Reading & Happy Hoping!

  3. Thanks for the hopeful bookshelves. I love the read one, but it might make me crazy trying to get a book back in place. If you get a chance stop by Amy @ www.bookgoonie.com

  4. Love all the bookshelves you shared! I agree with you about non-fiction vs. fiction too...it takes a special kind of non-fiction book to hold my interest :)

  5. Hey Trish,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. We don't have that Lifetime Channel in Ireland, but I would love to watch the movie on Rowling!

    I have trouble reading Non-Fiction. I just prefer to imagine everything my own way

  6. Oh boy, I want those READ bookcases! Just decorating my spare room, I wonder how big they are...Where did you find them?

    I don't mind the odd non-fiction, quite like military books if I'm straying from fiction.

  7. I love that READ bookshelf. I remember seeing something on yahoo about a book lover's dream home in Japan or some place. The place at book cubbies everywhere. It was awesome.

    Anyway, hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  9. I'm totally with you on the non-fiction. I'd be a lot smarter if I was into books about history, science, politics, etc.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  10. The Host is a really good read once you get 100 pages into the story. If you get bored with the beginning, skip to 100 in and then start again once Wanderer, well, gets to where she needs to go. Seriously, it's a great read! Thanks for hopping by my blog.

  11. I think the best nonfiction books are the ones that read like fiction. If they're dry and boring, forget about it. But I have read some that feel like fiction -- like Gertrude Bell, Queen of the Desert (don't remember the author), and Coop by Michael Perry. :)

  14. Non-Fiction is a tough one, because most times it is just not that interesting. I love those book shelves.
