Shelfie: April 2, 2017: New Case, New Rules

Standard

Is there anything much more exciting than a brand new bookshelf (or a new to you bookshelf as the case may be)?  With more space, we were excited to reorganize and re-sort our hoard of books.  With this bookcase, we added a new shelf of poetry (on the top shelf) and a new home for anthologies (stacked on top).

Poll: Would you put books like Homer’s Odyssey and Gilgamesh in with novels or with poetry?  Epic poems like those have the plot and length of a novel but the cadence of short form poetry, and I constantly struggle to determine where they better fit.

About Kathryn

My love of books has been carefully cultivated by the adults who raised me and also by the friends who love to share. My life has led me down long library shelves, to online forums, fanfiction sites, the front of a lecture hall, and into the desks of college classrooms. With an English degree and a couple master’s classes in Children’s Literature, I am now a bookseller for Barnes & Noble. I have been an editor for Wizarding Life Networks (the people who brought you Wizarding Life, Panem October, and MyHogwarts now HogwartsIsHere).
