Shelf Worn is a blog written by a slightly creased and dog-eared book lover (me). I love books of all genres and for all ages, but rarely have any money to buy them. This makes me a dedicated library goer, swapper and secondhand book sleuth. I also occasionally review new books where I can get them free! I am a champion for the out-of print, the overlooked, and the obsolete... Hopefully you will find a few gems here that you might have missed.
