The Bookshelf II

Book Tag

I did this tag over two years ago found here and have Definitely changed it, so decided to do it again!
          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

The bookshelf. You might notice that I've gotten rid of lots of books.
By color with black & white ones in the cubes

Your bookshelf
1) Describe your bookshelf & where you got it from?
>Ikea cubes, the 5x5, and another one attached to the side from...somewhere
From top: TBR/CR,
ongoing series, classics x2

2) How do you organize it?
>I made a post two years back with how I used to do it, link.
But now? There's basically 4 sections: starting from the right-hand-side bottom - classics (by series and height), series I haven't finished (by height, mostly), my TBR (by date bought) and then on top of the main shelf: everything else, by color (a) I can easily find them rather remembering the color than the author and b) it's aesthetically really pleasing and doesn't look cluttered)

3) Thickest book? (pages)
>Winter with 824 pages.
4) Thinnest book? (pages)
>The Twits, 96 pages

5) Birthday gift
>Well I got Renegades last Christmas from my sister, does that count?

6) Smallest book? (Hight & Width)
>I've got some mass market paperbacks (though I try to never get them),
but my copy of Peter Pan suprised me when it came (it is the height of a mmp but wider, and adorable) :) link
16101115and my copy of Lord of the Flies suprised me as well (the width of a mmp but taller) link

7) Biggest book? (Hight & Width)
>My Barnes&Noble leather bound edition of Hans Christian Andersen!
>For paperbacks it's Thorn or Wonder Woman, which are taller than most of my hardbacks!
8) From a friend?
>Latest one was probably Sapphire Blue

9) Most expensive book?
>I'd say around 20 euros maybe?

10) Last book you read?
>The Idiot Brain & currently I'm reading Sea Witch

11) First one you read?
>Actually read by myself probably one of the Ella books by Timo Parvela, a Finnish author

12) More than one copy
>I have the same book in both Finnish and English for Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and Pride and Prejudice. But same language and same book? None

13) Complete series

18) Book you won

19) Hate to let out of your sight (aka wouldn't let someone borrow)

But maybe the one I talked about in question 15

20) Most beat up
>And the same answer goes here

23) Book that's not actually your book

24) Special cover (e.g. leather bound, soft, fuzzy, etc.)?
>Hans Christian Andersen, Barnes&Nobel leather bound edition

25) Favourite cover
>I really LOVE my Harry Potter editions! I chose to go with the signature editions when I bought them.
>Also I really LOVE my Hunger Games foil editions
>Oh and the classic lines by Sara Singh for Emma, P&P and Jane Eyre

26) Has been on your shelf the longest and you STILL haven't read?
