Mind you, these are pictures of them a few weeks ago. I now have books stacking horizontally on top of those pictured.
My bookshelves have a big, big appetite.
In fact, I ran out of shelf space a long while ago. I had books in stacks all over my floor. My dad installed five new ones (the five to the left of of the Harry Potter shelves). My cousin and I spent at least five hours sorting books by genre (Children’s, YA, ARC, Nancy Drew, Fiction, and Non-fiction) and then by the last name of the author. We filled my five new shelves entirely.
And, as I said, this was a few weeks ago, so I’m already overflowing a bit. While I’m in a glorious predicament, it’s a predicament all the same. It seems my books will now have to be stacked elsewhere in the house.
I have another shelf above my desk that isn’t entirely full, but it’s dedicated to antique books. I don’t want to jam Twilight into the mix.
One huge advantage to a large home “library” is that my family and friends need not go to an actual library. Madeleine’s room will do, and there’s better service.
Do your bookshelves have a large appetite as well? I’d love to see pictures!
P.S. Sorry for the crappy pictures, by the way.
