  1. There's not a single thing I'd move from my bookshelf. It's all fiction and I can easily claim they belong to my children/grandchildren and I only have them while they sort out the rest of their books.

    1. That's so true - I could just say I'm looking after them for someone else!

  2. This has made me chortle aloud at the start of a challenging day. My favourite is Number 2. Thank you x

  3. I love this! I'm all right. I've got John Donne, the Oxford Book of Carols, bibles, musical scores, and books from university days which I can't bear to get rid of, all with cracked spines which can't be read anyway. And all my Dan Brown books are on another shelf in another part of the house Not to be on view when I'm trying to impress an audience of literary snobs. Those other volumes you mention... hidden well away.

    1. All very impressive! I do think you should just slot one Dan Brown book in amongst the Bibles and see who spots it!
