These were the last books left to tour – a smallish but eclectic variety of “real world” topics that interest me. Let me know if you’ve read any of them or similar books you’d recommend!
The long-awaited last shelf of fiction! We finally get to brush shoulders with Peter Pan, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, and other beloved characters, plus some mid-century gems like The Hobbit.* The late Victorian era was where I fell in love with classic literature, so I have a special affection for these books.
*Forgot to mention it in the video, but I have the complete Lord of the Rings, of course – it’s on my “Re-Read” shelf at the moment. 🙂 There’s a couple of other books in the same situation, like Doyle’s The Lost World.
More 19th-century literature! I get chatty about Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Lewis Carroll, and Jules Verne as we finish off this second shelf. And oh, those wood engravings… ❤ Let me know if you've read any of these!
In this second episode, we continue on with more books in my physical bookcase. On this shelf, it’s mostly fairy tales and 19th-century literature, from E. T. A. Hoffmann and Mary Shelley, to Nathaniel Hawthorne and the Brontë sisters. Let me know if you’ve read any of these!
In this first episode, I’ll be going through some books on my physical to-read (and to-reread!) shelf. There’s all kinds of classics here, from Jane Eyre and The Count of Monte Cristo, to Emily Dickinson and William Faulkner. Also present are a few history books and fiction based on historical events. Enjoy, and let me know if you’ve read any of these!
P. S. Sorry for the shaky video and abrupt transitions (didn’t know there was a fifteen minute cutoff…it was better before the final edit, alas). Next time methinks I’ll get a tripod.
