Oh wow, it’s been a while since I last wrote up one of these! This time around I was nominated by Mirror Purple, a fellow aniblogger. To check out his nomination post, click here, his blurb about me is…interesting (hehehe)
- Display the award on your blog.
- Thank the person who nominated you and put a link to their blog.
- Share 7 things about yourself.
- Nominate 15 or more bloggers and let them know you nominated them.
So he didn’t leave me a topic for this award so I’m just going to pick a random one: My Bookshelves. Also, a lot of the people I follow have already been nominated so I went looking around for some new people who maybe haven’t been nominated yet. If you have…oops (lol)
Here we go!
1 . I recently bought a new shelf to add to my currently full 6 ones. And by full I mean I put two rows of books on each section, pile some in-between the sections, and stack up to my ceiling.
2 . I have 3 shelves that are filled with novels, 2 of them that are manga, and one that is yaoi-specific. I also have an invisible one that sits atop two of these and that just has a whole bunch of general manga and a few yaoi ones that didn’t fit on its own shelf.
3 . I own quite a few Japanese manga. At first, I was only buying unlicensed Japanese ones, usually yaoi but now I’ve started collecting certain series in Japanese because they’re so ahead compared to the English. One example is My Hero Academia. I own the 10 volumes that are out. If I really like a series I’ll even buy both versions. (No I’m not buying the English for Ten Count)
4 . I have probably read 90% of my manga collection and only a small portion of my novels. The reason is that I read the manga online first and then collect it if I like it. For novels, sometimes I’ll buy them and not like them, or I’ll just go on a shopping spree…and those generally take longer to read OTL
5 . My novels collection has gotten so big that I now have to shelve it a certain way. I have the first two sections of one shelf with some of my favorites for easy access. After that, all of them are ordered by author name and title. If they’re from one series I ignore the titles and just put them in order. I also put small pocket-sized paperbacks, classics, and school books in their own sections.
6. My manga collection is ordered by type (general vs yaoi) and then whatever I want displayed at the front. Sometimes the length of the series plays a role in how I shelve. For example, all my Naruto (72) and Skip Beat (34) volumes have their own sections because they’re longer than any of the others I have.
7. Because I have so many books, I try to keep all the titles on a spreadsheet on my phone in a way that doesn’t require internet connection. This really helps with accidentally buying double volumes. Of course, I’m a forgetful person and it takes me a while to update the sheet. If I’m going to a convention or doing a planned book shopping spree I make sure to update it!
I also want to tag Lyn but I don’t know if you hit the 5 mark yet? I checked your nominations page but don’t know if that’s been updated. If you haven’t can you make this one about traveling?
Have fun and until next time people! 🙂
