Stay-at-home shelfie #22

The first part of this shelf contains some hardcover editions of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.1 Included are the Russian-language edition of The Hobbit that was published in the Soviet Union in 1976. I can't read a word of it, but the illustrations by Mikhail Belomlinsky are fabulous. Smith of Wootton Major is my favorite piece of writing by Tolkien, which is saying a lot.

Then, starting with Atia Abawi's A Land of Permanent Goodbyes, it's the beginning of the alphabetically organized modern fiction. That's what we'll be seeing on the next few shelves. If it's not clear by now, my shelves feature a mishmash of organizational techniques. The best part is that I can always decide to do things differently, leading to fun hours of Sort The Books™.
