On My Shelf: A to B

Except for getting new books there is nothing us book lovers enjoy more than showing our book collections to the world. On My Shelf is a monthly opportunity for you to do just that. It’s all about sharing the books on your shelf in alphabetical order, according to author.

It’s a very chilled-out meme, so you can plan it in any way you like, and post at any time of the month, any number of times you like. You can share your books in any way you want. Post a list of your books, post pictures or do a YouTube video. It's completely up to you.

Do you have a huge book collection? Don't fret. You don't need to post each and every book. Share only those that you really love or highlight a couple that you think everyone else should read.

Each month we’ll cover different letters of the alphabet which will give you the chance to show the world which authors have that coveted spot on your bookshelf.

How to participate:
  1. Follow this blog (so you know when a new On My Shelf post goes live)
  2. Post your own On My Shelf post(s) to your blog. Please include a link back to this post so other people can find out what it's all about and join in if they like.
  3. Add a link to your OMS post(s) to the list below and that's it!

This month we tackle authors from A to B

Link submissions for 'A to B' posts closes on 31 August.

Have fun!


  1. I like this idea. I'm going to incorporate it into my blog post for this Friday and link back to your page. My blog is relatively new (, but I would hope you would check it out and follow me, as well. My post on Friday will be entitled "My own Works Cited list- 10 books that have inspired me."

  2. Just posted the A-B at the tail end of my weekly post today, "My own Works Cited list: 10 books that have inspired me" (and put a link to your blog, as well). Hope you get a chance to check it out.
