What’s On Your Shelf, John Howell?

Dawn Nelson has featured one of my bookshelves on her “What’s On Your Shelf?” feature. Dawn is a terrific supporter of other authors, a reviewer, and fine writer as well. While there, check out her beautiful blog.

It’s time for  ‘What’s On Your Shelf?’ and please give a warm welcome to fellow writer and blogger, John Howell from ‘Fiction Favourites’. John can be found writing gritty thrillers and action adventure. If you haven’t already, you can check out his blog here and his books here. So, without further ado, let’s see what’s on John’s shelf!

‘I am so grateful to Dawn for giving me the opportunity to stop by with a post on “What’s On Your Shelf.” When I first thought about describing my shelf I had to make a selection out of a number. I guess that is the way of life for a writer. What I thought I would do is give you a before and after view of just one of the shelves and one which underwent a redesign.

Here is a before glance at the living room bookshelves.

  1. Thanks John. A pleasure to have you visit 🙂

    1. Thank you again, Dawn. 🙂

  2. Loving this shelf 🙂

    1. Thanks, Jeyran. 🙂

  3. What a marvelous feature, John. Thanks for sharing it here, else I wouldn’t have met Dawn.
    I understand about the book donations. I gave away so many of mine, trying to down-size for this smaller home in DC. Then when I thought I was finally moving back to the desert (but at my own expense…again) I donated almost everything else. Oh well…
    Anyway, you have such a beautiful home. I loved the “before” almost as much as the “after.” Hmmm I still find it hard to choose. Really enjoyed the look at your shelves. Have a terrific Tuesday. Mega hugs!

    1. We lived with the cluttered “writer in residence ” look for a number of years. Finally my wife decided we need to move to a different look. I must say it was better than being banished to a store room. 😀

  4. Great shot, even if it is blurry. Love the little furry friend perched on the back of the sofa posing.

    1. Yes. She was my precious Silky Terrier. Sadly over the bridge.

  5. Good post. Congratulations, John. 🙂 — Suzanne

    1. Thank you , Suzanne.

  6. I absolutely love the vibe… though I’d love to see the precedent look as well… 🙂

    1. More or less like the fist photo but all the way across.

  7. Great look either way! Love the way books are used to lift things up. Our book shelves are still full of books and are starting to stack up on the floor. Thanks for sharing! Glad your wife did not want to replace you.

    1. Ha ha ha. Oh I think she thinks about replacing me, Jo. 😀

  8. Oh, can’t wait to see this. I’m off to check it out now!

  9. Keep this up and it will be Obama’s fault!

    1. Who do you think is at fault for the redesign?

      1. Both of us know the answer.

  10. Looks like the shelving of creative minds. Quite studious. Lovely.

    1. Thank you, Audrey. 🙂
