I have spent the last 2 days emptying my 3 strangely shaped bookcases (in fact, I should be trying to clear the random trinkets I have stored on top of 2 of them still, but instead I'm blogging). There was no space for any new books and after months of discussing the possibility of getting rid of the bookcases altogether and switching to shelves my Dad finally said we'd do it this weekend...if I could get all the books and stuff off.
It's now Friday, 3pm, and I'm doing alright. Still a bit to go, but at least all the books are gone now.
Thank goodness my sister isn't at home any more so her room is empty and free to have my books piled up for however long it takes to get the new shelves, I certainly have no space in my room for them. Downside is my room feels really empty and it took forever to carry all the books upstairs.
But all this cleaning got me thinking; what do you do when you run out of room on your shelves? Do you buy a new bookcase or find a spot on your desk/floor and stack them on top of each other? Do you even have shelves? I know Kerrie stores her books in her wardrobe (who needs space for clothes, right?). If I had room in my own wardrobe I'd be putting books there too.
I guess what I want to know is: how do you store your books?
