THIS WEEK’S TOPIC FROM ADDLEPATES AND BOOKWORMS IS
books you want to keep for your kids
While I intend to keep most, if not all, of my books for the rest of my life, I do have a few in particular that I am saving for when I obtain children. The most obvious is the Harry Potter series, there is no way I would not share the magic that grew up with me with my kids. The other books I’m saving for kids because ideally I’ll adopt a girl are the Amelia’s Notebook series and the American Girl books, of which I own all the Josefina and Samantha books with some others thrown in as well. Another obvious save is my treasury of Dr. Seuss stories.
Above: My recently reorganized book collection, I had to do some organizing so that I wouldn’t block out Austrailia.
Which Books Are you saving for your kids?
To participate in the Exploring Your Bookshelf meme hosted by Addlepates and Bookworms, here’s what you do:
- Post a picture of your bookshelf (preferably literal, but e-shelves work too).
- I’ll give you something about your shelf to write about. It might be your favourite cover, your favourite author, your book you most recently bought etc.
- Then give us the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it)
- And finally, come back to my post and send us a link! I promise to check out all of your posts!
