Any reader knows of the keeper shelf. Any romance writer is a voracious reader and aware of the keeper shelf too. The keeper shelf is the shelf or shelves of books you have to keep, to re-read over and over again.
I have several bookcases of hard covers and a giant bookcase in the garage of paperbacks that number probably in the hundreds. I love books. I started reading at 2 1/2 years old and I’ve collected tons of books since then. I have my childhood classics; Black Beauty, Little Woman, Huckleberry Finn, The Prince and the Pauper, and so many more. I have all the books of my favorite romance writers; Jennifer Blake, Shirlee Busbee, Joanna Lindsay, Bertrice Small, and so many others. I have all my friends who are now published; Karin Tabke, Tawny Weber, Amy Atwell, and now Sharon Hamilton and P.A. Moore.
So now we have the age of e-readers; the Kindle, the Nook, and others. So, how do you decide what to save on a “keeper shelf” on an eReader? Do you collect hundreds of them and have several memory cards? Do you only keep series or favorites?
What will be on the “keeper shelf” of your eReader? What is on your physical keeper shelves? Jill James
