Waiting on Wednesday (#6): My Ideal Bookshelf

From Goodreads: "The books that we choose to keep-let alone read-can say a lot about who we are and how we see ourselves. In THE IDEAL BOOKSHELF, dozens of leading cultural figures share the books that matter to them most-books that define their dreams and ambitions and in many cases helped them find their way in the world. With colorful and endearingly hand-rendered images of book spines by Jane Mount, and first-person commentary from all the contributors, this is a perfect gift for avid readers, writers, and all who have known the influence of a great book."

Expected Publication Date: 11/13/2012
As a long-time reader, the whole premise of My Ideal Bookshelf by Jane Mount & Thessaly La Force fascinates me and I'm sure the book itself will inspire many more additions to my To Read list.

Check out the authors' website to order prints, notecards, or even your own custom piece of book art. The custom pieces are definitely pricey, but would make an amazing wedding or housewarming gift for the avid readers in your life -- I know I want one!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.


  1. This book sounds interesting, it would be neat to see what certain people would have on their "ideal" bookshelf. Thanks for stopping by my WOW:) Oh and if you like vampires and you like young adult you HAVE to read Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy freakin good!

    1. Thanks Elizabeth, I'll have to look into that series -- too many books & not enough time is the story of my life!


I'd love to hear what you think :)
