Shelf Envy [19]: Nancy Straight and a G!veaway.

Well, it’s been quite a while since I’ve bothered someone to send me a picture of their bookshelves so today, I’m pretty excited to have Nancy. Her bookshelves are pretty unconventional to say the least and clutter free (unlike mine), if I may say so myself. Thank you, Nancy for indulging us today.

You are going to be shocked with the photo of my bookshelves.  My bookshelves consist of six books; that seemed pretty meager to take a picture of, but I’ll tell you what they are:  Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, Inescapable by Amy Bartol (signed) and Devour by Shelly Crane (signed).  What?  Surprised!?  Yes, donated all of my other hardcopy books to my library and this is what my bookshelf looks like now!!!

If you are wondering, YES, those are pictures from my Amazon cloud.  I don’t think there’s another person on the planet who loves their Kindle more than I love mine!!
When did you start collecting your booksI’m still using the same Kindle my husband bought me three years ago.  I like how Amazon let’s me store books on their cloud so when I want to re-read anything I just move it to my Kindle, otherwise it stays stored in the cloud and doesn’t fill up my device.  So technically, my collection began on my birthday two years ago.
Name the absolute top 5 books in your bookshelf.
OHMYSWEETGOODNESS that’s a hard question!!  I’ve met tons of amazing authors and picking my top 5 is painful!  Could I give you my top twenty-five?  No?  *huge pout* Okay, but five hardly seems fair when you can clearly see from my picture above that there are over one hundred that I keep on my Kindle at all times.  I’ll have to go with Christie Rich’s FIVE, Charlotte Abel’s ENCHANTMENT, Amy Bartol’s INESCAPEABLE, Shannon Dermott’s BEG FOR MERCY and Shelly Crane’s SIGNIFICANCE.  Although if you let me name more than five I could fill your blog!!
Hardcopy, paperback, or e-copy? Why?
E-copy!  No dusting required!!  *fist pump* Like most moms, I’m always on the go and it seems like I’m waiting at bus stops, practices, tournaments, etc. all the time.  So having e-books lets me always have something I can read on my downtime; even if it’s just five minutes of downtime.  I try to read at least a book per week and doing that on an e-reader is also waaaaaay less expensive!

What is the most controversial book in your shelf?
Controversial, hmmm, *taps index finger to chin* I’m not sure I have anything controversial in my library.  I’m a fan of fiction, and more than that, paranormal romance and fantasy fiction.  So, the books I adore don’t normally have any political ramifications – I leave that reading for my husband!
What is the most random thing on your shelf? (knick knacks, trinkets, etc)
The shelves that used to house books in my living room now hold pictures of my family, my husband’s John Deere collection, and the occasional dog bone that is relocated from a sofa cushion (much to the chagrin of the dogs who buried it there to begin with.) 

Thanks so much for letting me stop by today, it was a real pleasure to be here!
