A tour of my bookshelves

Books are wonderfully aesthetic and completely personal. Everyone has a different collection of different editions, all with different stories of their ownership and a different treatment. Some fold the pages,break the spine, annotate the pages (that's me) while others keep them beautifully pristine.
Stories with in stories.
I feel I will be adding to this collection, probably for the rest of my life. I will link each book to their page on Goodreads, where you can read a description and ratings etc and for any that I already have a review, I shall of course link it.
