The Compulsive Reader: Bookshelves

Bookshelves

I've been bombarded recently with someone wanting to know how many books I have, and where I keep them all.


I'm happy to comply, but you see, if I do show you, I'm afraid you'll think I'm a terrible slob. Usually I'm not, but uh, I don't have NEARLY enough room to put all my books (there are piles of them, and I honestly am trying to get rid of some. Honestly) so therefore I end up with this:





There you go. A compulsive reader's mess.

I couldn't click to enlarge :( I really like your bookcases!

When I was asked several times to do mine I just did a few snapshots because I didn't want to show my mess either (which is way worse than yours!)

Wow. I am jealous of you.

God I wish I had that shelf space. Then I could get the rest of my books off of the floor, lol.

And believe me, my room is much worse of a mess. I think book lovers (esp. those of the reviewer kind) tend to be a bit of a slob, lol.

Also, I am ready and willing to take some books off of your hands if need be. I'm very caring and selfless like that. :P

I wish I had shelves like that filled with so may books!

That sure does look familiar - but I've got three book shelves in 2 different rooms - the books are taking over :)
