Musing Mondays - What Do Your Bookshelves Say About You?

This week’s musing asks…

What does your bookshelf (or, what do your bookshelves) say about you to the people who come into your home?

My bookshelves say I have a lot of books, and that I don't have enough bookshelves. They say I like to read a lot of fiction and that once in a while I'm lucky enough to get an advance copy of something cool like the new Mieville of Shteyngart book, but that I like to read older fiction as well. I separate my unread books from those I've read, so I guess my bookshelves also say that I have a lot of interests and that sometimes it's hard for me to keep up with them all. I also separate out my signed books and 1st editions of Booker Prize winners along with my collection of Jane Eyre editions, so my bookshelves also say I'm a collector.

What about you?
