The #EmptyShelf Challenge - How to 'Put' Kindle Books on the Shelf

I'm joining lots of people in Jon Acuff's The #EmptyShelf Challenge.

Go read what it is and then come back here.

I own very few books and even fewer business books. I do read quite a bit. We just can't afford to actually buy the books.

So I check out books from the library. Since I can't put their books on my shelf without racking up the fines, I thought I would make a 'book' template to fill my shelf. The pdf is a printable template for you to cut out, fold, glue/tape, and then put on your shelf for all the books you can't physically put on the shelf. Such as a library book or Kindle book.

I listen to a lot of audio books (from the library, again) while I'm driving from job to job, so to make it more diverse, here is a audio book box that is shorter. Roughly the same height as an actual book on cd case.

By the way, I think my empty shelf is about the coolest!

Let me know what you think. What books are you going to start reading to fill your shelf?
