This activity is for listing all (or nearly all) of your books in your bookshelf.
Some of us buy more books than others, of course, but the books we buy tell something about us. No two book inventories are ever the same, right? A list of them will help your descendants understand you a bit more. To prove my point, I'd love to know what was on a great-grandparents bookshelf. It would help me know them just a little bit better
Let me try and make my point:
None of you have ever met my wife Sheri.Here is only a sampling of the books that she has purchased and accumulated over the years. After looking the list over, I think you'll see that you will gain some insight into what her interests, concerns and loves are!
Here it goes!
7 Simple Steps To Unclutter Your Life - by Donna Smallin
Raising Money Smart Kids - Barbara Weltman
Chicken Soup for the Couple's Soul - various writers
The Total Health Makeover - by Marilu Henner

Diabetes For Dummies - From the popular "Dummie" series
The Sky Is Falling - by Sydney Sheldon
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective families - Stephen Covey
Oprah's Magazine "O" - subscription

So you went from knowing nothing about an individual, but now after reviewing a list of her books, you now have some sort of idea as to what her interests, concerns and interests are.
Imagine if you had a similar list from your grandmother. You may get a glimpse to a side of your grandmother that you never knew.
So, what does your bookshelf say about you? Go ahead and get started on your list. This one is fun!
