  1. What a great idea about sharing photos as a shelfie from home.
    It will be interesting to see how everyone manages their books.
    I wonder if books will be grouped by authors or size or by favourite reads.
    I’m off to have a look at our book shelf and maybe I’ll need to do a bit of a tidy up because sometimes books spread from the shelf onto the bench.
    I wonder if our books on our shelves grow legs during the night.

  2. Miss Y.. what a creative idea .. I think you are going to get some amazing shelfies … watch this space !!

  3. Hi Mrs S

    Books at my house also creep out to the lounge room and love to spend time resting on my kitchen table!

    I think we are going to see lots of different ways people organise their books after some of the conversations with the Year 4 and 5 students today!!

    I hope everyone has fun taking their “Shelfies”

  5. Hi Miss Y,
    I hope you don’t mind but we would love to get some of our students at St Luke’s in Blackburn South to join in on your shelfie fun !
    A great fun way to share our passion for books! We will let you know when we have some to share

  10. Dear Miss Y,

    What a great idea I just love it. I am not game to send in a photo of my book shelf due to the fact it is so messy.

    Somehow after reading this post I really need to get my act together and get my book shelf looking book perfect.

    Have a super day Miss Y.

  11. Hi Miss Y,

    What a great idea! Our upstairs bookshelf is for fiction and the ones downstairs are for non-fiction. My husband is quite happy now though because all my new fiction books are housed on my kindle and are much more organised! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Hi AA

    I have told the children not to worry if their bookshelf is messy – it means they’re reading the books!

    Miss Y ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Hi Ms Will

    You don’t have to worry about dusting your new Fiction books either!

    I hope we won’t lose all of our bookshelves to the electronic world…

  14. Hey Miss Y! I’m very excited about doing my Shelfie!! What a great idea! Some of my favorite book series are: Pearlie, My Sister the Vampire, Ivy and Bean, Billie B Brown and Rascal.
    What are some of yours?

  15. Hi Layla

    Thank you for sending me your Shelfie – I love it!

    I have lots of favourite books! At the moment I’m really enjoying the new Our Australia Girl books, Refuge by Jackie French and I’m looking forward to reading The Wishbird by Gabrielle Wang…

  16. What a great idea Miss Y!

    We’re doing a ‘belated Book Week’ this year – we have our hands full with our school musical and Year 6 PYP Exhibition – so I’m thinking we might do this in Term 4.

    I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

    Mrs H xo

  17. Thanks Mrs H!

    We’ve had to do “belated Book Weeks’ too – sometimes you just can’t do it all! I’m sure you will enjoy it more next term when things are a bit more “relaxed”.

    We’re going to have our Book Fair and visiting authors next term.

    Good luck with your school concert and Year 6 PYP exhibition!

    Miss Y ๐Ÿ˜€
