The Bookshelf

Book Tag

This tag was created by Natalie and can be found here.
I moved recently and had to organize my books again, since I changed bookshelves, and decided to do this.
          Some "rules":
              The book (s) you answer with must be from your bookshelf.
              And include a picture of your bookshelf if you'd like to and if possible

Your bookshelf
1) Describe your bookshelf & where you got it from?
>My father actually built it :)

2) How do you organize it?
>I'm currently doing a separate post for this, since it has a lot of sections, so look out for that! I'll post it next week :)

3) Thickest book? (pages)
>My William Shakespeare collection (link here). 1200 pages
>For the ones I've read it would be Winter with 824 pages.

4) Thinnest book? (pages)
>How to be an Alien, 48 pages

5) Birthday gift
>Latest was the Roald Dahl box set

6) Smallest book? (Hight & Width)
>I've got lots of mass market paperbacks,
but my copy of Peter Pan suprised me when it came (it is the height of a mmp but wider, and adorable) :) link
and my copy of Lord of the Flies suprised me as well (the width of a mmp but taller) link

7) Biggest book? (Hight & Width)
>The hard cover of A Court of Thorns and Roses really suprised me! It's taller than my Barnes&Noble 
leather bound editions!
>For paperbacks it's Thorn, which is taller than most of my hardbacks!

8) From a friend?

30) Do you own any books you hated/part of a series you won't continue?
>I used to keep even the ones I hated but I've gotten rid of them recently, though I do own some first books in series which I won't continue (but in most cases I liked the book and thought it ended well and works as a stand-alone) like e.g. Boy Nobody and Every Day

Read, read, read,
