When it says "shelf", *which* shelf exactly is it talking about? Are there people out there who only have one shelf of books?

If I had one bookcase it would break!

I've been planning that. I was going to do 4th from top left of the left-hand bookcase upstairs and 9th from the bottom right of the right-hand bookcase downstairs, not counting the emergency shelf of shared field guides or anything stacked in a vertical pile. It seems the only logical approach.

It really is. Vertically piled books don't count at all, nor do books on the stairs.

That is one of the reasons I didn't start this meme, my front room aone as 6 full height booksheves and there's more throughout the rest of the house.

My mother's house had one book shelf, as in a single shelf on the wall. It held a few dusty Catherine Cookson books, a copy of David Attenborough's Life on Earth and a guide of British steam trains.

I think this meme was written by a teenager. I was going to pick a set of shelves at random from the, erm, nine that I have around the house. I'm counting my arty stack of cookbooks as a shelf, by the way.

It's a vertical shelf, is all....

There must be, and I find that sad.

I have two bookcases with books (plus the one with dvds), and I'm in a rental at the moment.

And when I move, I have another two bookcases coming up to live in what will be my house.

I actually declared last night that 'one can never have too many bookcases' and I stand by that.

Not to mention the virtual bookcase that is my kindle....

I am being terribly, terribly grown up, and am shortly to join the ranks of home-owners (exchanging soon).

I will be living in Cottingley, home of the fairies!

If there are, then I don't want to know them!!!

That's one reason why I haven't done that meme yet. My cookbooks alone are spread over three different shelves, never mind my fiction and other non-fiction...

My cricket books fit on one shelf, I could pick those maybe...

I have a cricket bookshelf, a cookery bookshelf, a TV bookshelf, 2 crime novels bookselves, a childrens bookshelf, a terrypratchett boo case, two academic bookcases, a politics bookcase, a fiction bookcase and four vertical stacks of books waiting for some more bookcases.
