There is a lack of bookcases in my home – but perhaps the real issue is my obsession to hoard books. You see, I have just too many books and not enough storage. Kip has promised to get the guest room remodeled this winter so it can serve as a craft room (I don’t dare show you my hoards of fabric), a guest room (yes, there will be a bed in there), and a library with LOTS of shelves to store all my books. For now, unfortunately, this is what my storage system looks like…
Books in this bookcase have been read – I can’t seem to part with them because they are some of my favorite writers. The books stacked BESIDE and ON TOP of the bookcase are TBR:
Uh oh, more TBR stacks (95% purchases):
These shelves hold my short story collections, essay collections, classic books and non fiction (also TBR):
These are reference books, autographed books, non fiction (general) books – and all have been read (phew!):
Here is where I set out the books I want to read each month…you can see the problem, right? There are far too many here than I can possibly read in one month:
And finally, here are my ARCs and review books. I really need to stop accepting them…
Lest you think I never, ever give up a book – here is the (measly) amount I recently culled to giveaway or donate:
Not too long ago I posted about e-books and the sadness I feel about the possibility that physical books might disappear. Luckily, I have enough here to keep me in physical books for most of the rest of my life!
Do you have a problem like I do? How are you dealing with it? My solution is mostly denial…now if I could just have MORE bookshelves!!!!
