It's become something of a tradition to attend each fall, and as usual we had a great time schmoozing with publishing folk, dining on tiny delicious h'ordeuvres, and joining in on the excitement as the Giller Prize winner was announced.

This year's event was held at The Burroughes Building, right in my neighbourhood, and as far as my dancing shoes and I are concerned, it was a huge success!
I've never been a huge reader myself, and only pick up books here and there (usually with a recommendation from one of my sisters or friends) so when I do polish off a new novel it becomes something of a trophy for me and I adore having "my books" around me or on display around the house.
I'm fairly sure everyone in my family has the ever-reliable Billy Bookshelf from Ikea, myself/Marc included, but this past year we bought into a cool new way of displaying our books...
The floating shelf!
It's just one of those silly things that catches your eye or makes you think, but most importantly adds a little fun to your space!
What do you think? Do you display your books in a way that thinks outside of the typical shelf or coffee table box?
