My Bookshelves

Here’s where I attempt to catalogue all my books, and by books, I’m referring to real, physical books. I think it’s something else for me to do other than blogging about books.

These reads are first categorized based on how it was arranged on my shelf, followed by the order of books (L-R).

I hope this catalogue might spark a stranger’s curiosity in picking up a title and  read again. This is a work-in-progress, happy exploring!
