Welcome to the newest weekly feature here at Bookshelf Fantasies… Shelf Control!
Shelf Control is all about the books we want to read — and already own! Consider this a variation of a Wishing & Waiting post… but looking at books already available, and in most cases, sitting right there on our shelves and e-readers.
Want to join in? See the guidelines and linky at the bottom of the post, and jump on board! Let’s take control of our shelves!
My Shelf Control pick this week is:
What it’s about (synopsis via Goodreads):
Without warning, giant silver ships from deep space appear in the skies above every major city on Earth. Manned by the Overlords, in fifty years, they eliminate ignorance, disease, and poverty. Then this golden age ends–and then the age of Mankind begins….
How I got it:
Found it on the $1 table at my library’s annual sale.
When I got it:
A few years ago.
Why I want to read it:
I’m a sci-fi fan, but I’m pretty deficient when it comes to classic science fiction. I’ve never read anything by Arthur C. Clarke, and I really need to fix that. Plus (and just coincidentally), there’s a TV version of this coming up, and it looks pretty great!
Want to participate in Shelf Control? Here’s how:
- Write a blog post about a book that you own that you haven’t read yet.
- Add your link below!
- And if you’d be so kind, I’d appreciate a link back from your own post.
- Check out other posts, and have fun!
And if you’d like to post a Shelf Control button on your own blog, here’s an image to download (with my gratitude, of course!):
