A-Z Challenge Theme Reveal
I own a lot of books. I have been buying books and keeping them for as long as I can remember. In one of my posts earlier this year I had a picture of my grandson in front of one of my bookcases. One of my readers commented on one of the books that they saw in the bookcase (501 Must-Visit Destinations).
I have books in bookcases, books under coffee tables, books in closets, books in the basement, books in boxes... I'm constantly donating books, but I always still seem to have more than I have room for. If I owned a very large house I would have a library room for sure.
When I started to think about what my theme would be for this years A-to-Z Challenge, I remembered that comment. In past challenges I have blogged about my travels, but last year I stayed home and blogged about my gardening, so no exciting new places to visit.
I decided that the idea of blogging about various books I have may be something that I would do for the A-to-Z challenge. I will not be doing book reviews. I hate writing book reviews. I hated doing book reports in school. My choices for the letters will vary by author's names, subjects, titles - all over the map so to speak.
What I will be doing is mentioning a book that I have on my shelf and why it is there. I hope that over the next month you'll join me in seeing what I have on the bookshelf.
With each blog post I will also have an A-Z destination in the State of Michigan. It will basically be a two-for-one. Please join me at my favorite reading spot as we discover what is 'Off the Shelf and On the Road'.
