Bout of Books 13 Challenge 1: A bookish survey


Today’s challenge is a survey from Writing My Own Fairy Tale

1. How do you organize your shelves?

Well I don’t! My books on my shelves aren’t exactly organized at all, unless you count the height factor – taller books on one shelf, shorter books on another.

I do have one shelf that is for books that I have yet to read though!

2. What is one of your favorite book that’s not in one of your favorite genres?

That’s a tough one! I tend to read across a variety of genres so I have a lot of ‘favourite genres’. So I’m going to pick a favourite book that is of a genre that I don’t really read much of – non-fiction. I do enjoy non-fiction but I don’t take enough time to read it! And that would have to be 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff, a book I reread every once in a while!

3. What is the last 5 star book you read?


Love and Capes – Thomas F. Zahler


H is for Hawk – Helen MacDonald

(Ok so that’s not one but those were such different wonderful reads!)

4. What book are you most excited to read during the read-a-thon?

Underwater Welder – Jeff Lemire
5. What book do you recommend the most?


There isn’t one book that I recommend the most, but the last book I recommended was Lucy Knisley’s Relish.


  1. I remember a lot of people were recommending Relish. I never got around to reading it though. I’ll have to check out 84, Charing Cross Road as well. I love a good nonfiction selection, and one that you can reread sounds perfect!

    Have fun this week!
