What's Your Book Shelfie Style?

Posted at 7:45AM Friday 25 Jul 2014

Kids today, right? If we're not taking selfies, we're taking relfies, or ussies. Most importantly of all, however, we're taking shelfies — particularly, if you're anything like us, book shelfies.

The book shelfie is, at its most basic, a photo of your bookshelf (often along with yourself). Maybe it's artfully arranged so the spines create a mosaic of Harry Styles' face. Maybe your cat is pawing at the books, adorably. Maybe you just got a full set of the Penguin clothbound classics (lucky you!) and you're showing them off. There are myriad variations within the fairly strict constraints of the book shelfie.
