Thank you to one and all who voted in my poll over the weekend to help me choose a title for my new weekly feature here at Bookshelf Fantasies.
We have a name!
I’m excited to introduce you to…
Up to now, my Wednesday posts (Wishing & Waiting on Wednesday) — inspired by Waiting on Wednesday and Wishlist Wednesday — have been focused on upcoming new releases, highlighting not-yet-published books that I want to read. And while I’ll never run out of those, I’m realizing more and more that I need to regroup and focus on the books I already have. (Want to know more? Check out my recent post, Counting up the books).
With that in mind, I’m bouncing with joy as I introduce Shelf Control. My Shelf Control feature will run each Wednesday (starting next week) — and much like my Wishing & Waiting posts, will focus on a book that I really want to read. But with a catch!
What’s the catch? Quite simple. My Shelf Control picks will be books that I already own — either physical copies from my overflowing shelves, or one of the many unread titles elbowing each other out of the way on my Kindle.
I was originally thinking of this as something I’d do myself each week, but based on some comments received, it sounds like there might be interest out there for others to join in! So, I’ll be adding in a linky tool, and would love to share the love!
I’m looking forward to highlighting some of the goodies from my shelves… and I’m hoping this will give me the added motivation to start focusing on reading books I already have!
Because some days, when I look at my shelves, I worry that I’ll end up like this:

Shelf Control wins! I can’t wait for you to start this meme, I think if the bookshelf can stop me from buying books due to lack of space it will.
Ha ha, maybe our bookshelves are conspiring against us! 🙂 I will definitely have this meme up and running next week. I’d hoped to really have it ready this week, but my “real” (i.e., non-book-related) life got in the way.
hahaha, good luck with things in your “real” life!
This seems like an awesome feature!! I will be participating for sure. 🙂
I’m so happy to hear that! I’m really looking forward to it.
Woo hoo! Can’t wait to join in 🙂 Now off to search my shelves for my first pick!
Yay! Now I need to find a good first book too!
Exciting! Love the title for this new feature of yours 🙂
lmao, I can relate to that last image a lot xD

Oh whoa! Now this is something that I definitely will need. I am going to try to combine this monthly with my Library Card (not weekly…) If that will be okay! Of course I will always link you in.
Sounds great — I’d love to see what you post!
