Bout of Books Mini-Challenge: Bookish Survey

Bout of Books
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal.  It is a week long read-a-thon that begins May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th.  There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Today’s mini-challenge, a Bookish Survey, is from Lori @ Writing My Own Fairy Tale.


The Questions: 

1. How do you organize your shelves?  I organize my shelves by hardcover to mass market paperback and by height.  So, my tallest hardcovers are on the left side of the top shelf and my shortest paperbacks are on the bottom shelf (I have a lot so they’ve got their own shelf)  I try to keep books by an author together, but sometimes that’s impossible, and I also keep series together as long as I own them in the same size/type of book.
2. What is one of your favorite books that isn’t in one of your favorite genres?  I don’t have one; every single one of my favorite books has come from my favorite genres.
3. What is the last five-star book you read? The Dream Lover by Elizabeth Berg.
4. What book are you most excited to read during the read-a-thon? I really want to finish The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon.
5. What book do you recommend the most?  That greatly depends on who I’m recommending a book to.  Sometimes it’s Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, other times it’s The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, still other times it’s The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

  1. I’m the same way with my favorite books and genres. I think if I had a favorite book out of my favorite genre I would read more from that genre – than eventually that genre would become a favorite too… if that made any sense.
    I just finished Outlander’s first season not too long ago. I’m really tempted to read the series now.
    Hope you have a great Bout of Books and you are able to finish The Fiery Cross 😀

  2. I love reading how people organise their books, your way is one of the rarest as most people seem to colour coordinate (as I do, I just like the way they look then) 🙂
