It is a lazy Sunday afternoon, and I just walked in my office. I stop to admire my bookshelves, which I have recently gotten cleaned and organized. None of my friends get how fun it is to play with the books, rearranging them and making room for new additions. If I am weird, then I don’t want to be normal. 😉
I try to keep it organized the best I can. By that I mean I like hardcovers all on one shelf. What irks me most is when I can’t put all of one author on one shelf. My Stephen King paper backs are on one, and the hardcovers are on another. I know, I know. #Bookwormproblems.
During the holidays, when I had the chance to look at some book themed blogs, I noticed a lot of people had mini lights to make their shelves festive. I plan on doing that soon, just for the fun of it. I figure it will make my cave a bit more cozy at night.
One thing I really had to do when I cleaned this up was get rid of junk laying about and stacking them properly. Things got messy with my cheap library sale finds. As you can see, I have plenty of room for new additions. 😉
I have never owned a shelf this big before. When we found out we were moving into this house, and Mr.C brought me over, my eyes popped out of my head. It is by far my favorite thing in our home. I know other people have bigger and better, but to me, my books and shelf are perfect. It holds all of my favorite things and offers many places to escape to.
What things are on your shelf, aside from books? Does your get messy with new books shoved in, or is that just me? 😉
