Sign you’re addicted to books: You literally dream about finding a copy of a sequel that comes out next year, clutch it to your chest, and start making plans to read it as soon as no one is around.

This is my first shelfie. Recently I traded in a lot of books I didn’t want anymore, allowing me to rearrange all the books I still had. This small shelf - it’s part of my entertainment center - used to house several haphazard piles of paperbacks. Now all these nice big books can sit here majestically.
This summer I went to Thrillerfest and bought that big beautiful omnibus of the first three Vampire Chronicles books so that I could get it autographed by Anne Rice. Then it turned out that they gave everybody a free copy of Queen of the Damned and she signed them - that’s the book whose spine you can’t see all of. It’s shorter than the other books but I figured that was a good spot for it.
(You get a lot of free books at Thrillerfest.)
Republic of Thieves is also autographed, and if you haven’t been reading Scott Lynch you need to. The Speckled Monster I picked up because it discusses an ancestor of mine, who was the first doctor to administer a smallpox vaccine in the New World, and one of the people he inoculated was a teenager named Benjamin Franklin. It turned out the book is also very beautifully written, unusual for a nonfiction work.
