"So you enjoy reading, do you?"
Five months ago, I had so many books stuffed into our living room alone — in bookcases, in drawers, and stacked on the floor — that I was able to donate 18 boxes worth to the local library and still store another 26 boxes in the portable storage unit now sitting in front of the house. Well, our new living room is pretty much “done.” So I spent last night shelving the books from those 26 boxes into our new built-in floor-to-ceiling bookcases. Holy crap! I’ve still got more than 40 empty shelves of varying sizes I can fill! An enormous amount of space! Now, there are still some books to be weeded out in the bedroom and guest rooms, but those rooms, once “redone” in the next few weeks, will all feature a few new built-in bookcases as well. This is liberating! I may no longer need to stack books along the walls and in the garage!
When the proper time comes, I’ll post a few pictures here of my new, more organized, multi-room book collection. I'm so happy.
