Literary Mardi Gras: Show Us Your Shelves!

You’ve heard a similar “request” yelled during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, right?


Please don’t respond with THOSE kinds of photos. This is a PG-rated blog.

Instead, Nick (Call of the Siren) and I want to see the books on your shelves. We want to take a dip into your psyche and expose your literary soul to the world. Call it a “Reader’s Rorschach.”

Now post away and leave a message on Nick’s or my blog so we can drop by and wander at our leisure among your titles. And just to prove that Nick and I are not just voyeurs, we’ll be posting photos of our own shelves this weekend.

Thanks for indulging our curiosity! Who knows, maybe we’ll throw you a necklace or two.

    Ooh, I don’t know if this is a lazy response, but it’s the most logical way I can think to do it. I recently posted pics of one of my new book shelves. It is the Penguin case. I just decided that would be my theme. Here is al ink to it. Hope you like what you see. These titles probably aren’t reflective of my overall taste. I like so mnay different things. 🙂

    Well, I’ve just spent an hour searching for my camera and the only conclusion I can come to is that I’ve put it in a ‘safe place’ and then forgotten where that is. This means…..I have finally become my mother!! I’m now going to go lie in a darkened room for a while…

    Should my senility recede at some point, I will post pics. 🙂

    What a fun idea! I’m traveling a lot lately so got behind in my blog reading so missed this post. Will try to post something when I get back to my normal routine!

      I’m away at Squaw Valley Writers Workshop right now, so I have NO time to do anything except write this short note. Will take a closer look at your bookshelves when I return. Thank you for playing!!

Please feed the chickens...
