SThe well-known idiom states: “you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes,” but for me, the most telling thing about a person is their bookshelves. Be it physical or digital, what’s on a person’s book shelf says a lot about their tastes, likes and dislikes.

 

Here’s my Kindle bookshelf, for example.

There’s some contemporary-romance, as that’s what I’m currently writing, the trusty emotional thesaurus, some of my favourite fantasy/ urban-fantasy books, and a few non-fiction books; one I love and the other I’m currently sampling.

 

Fairly eclectic, but with a focus on romance, humour and the supernatural, which is a perfect summarization of both my reading and writing habits.

My dream bookshelf would be wall-to-wall bookcases, with hardback copies of all my favorites, and literary trinkets scattered throughout. Maybe when I win the lottery, huh?
