The first thing I do when I visit someone's house is check out their bookshelves. Honestly, the place could be a mess and the mice could be doing the cha-cha on your entertainment center. I don't care. I just want to see what is on your shelves. A personal library tells me more about a person then anything else. I really want to know what you are reading, or what you have bought and not read yet. So, here is a peek at my shelves (because it wouldn't be fair for me to be the only peeker). I just grabbed an entire shelf and stacked 'em on my bed. No, the dog does not usually sit on the bookshelf, she's just there for perspective. Delilah likes children's books best.
Note the top book: The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse, which is not one of the best books I have ever read, it maintains (for me) the BEST BOOK TITLE EVER award.
