My Name is an Insult

Well, I decided to change the name of this blog slightly.  I've had several questions about the name of it anyway and found that "One Book Shy ~ of a Full Library" just didn't have the ring of say, "One Book Shy ~ of A Full Shelf".  (Plus the photo I took of the shelf in my hubby's man cave seems better suited to the 2nd name.) 

As to the name - yes, it is a play on the old, not-so-nice saying/insult of "one brick shy of a full load".  I've been accused of that once or twice so I thought I'd make use of it :)

So what do you think, is it an improvement?  Speaking of improvements, I'd love to hear any comments or suggestions on what you think would make this blog better.  I'm still fairly new to the book blogging community and would love to get your advice.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I think you're right. One book shy of a full shelf does have a ring to it. But your layout and design still rock!

    Have a great weekend too : )

  2. I actually thought it was a good name - but this works too! I like the header photo too.

  3. Thank you my friends, I appreciate the support!

  4. I've been accused of being one brick shy and all that, even by myself. So when I saw your title, I laughed out loud and though it was absolutely perfect. I'm a new follower, so I've only seen the new name, but I still think it works. I think a little crazy makes life all that much more interesting. Although, my hubby might not agree, my sisters do. And that makes all the difference. :D
