Not Enough Bookshelves

13 Mar


I’m a little jealous of all the pretty Tumblr and Instagram artistic shots of bookshelves with fairy lights and little figurines of favorite book characters and the books arranged by color and size and all be able to fit on the bookshelves…

My bookshelf needs a “Caution: Books Falling” sign or something.

Obviously there’s no such thing as too many books, but there is such a thing as not enough space. Rachel and I have already decided that we’re going to have a library in our own house whenever we’re able to afford it, so I shouldn’t have to worry about hoarding books, right?

I have been thinking of cleaning out my bookshelves again, though. Donating books to my local thrift shop or used bookstore will give them a chance of being picked up and read by someone else, and it’ll free up a little space on my shelves.

That same line of thinking makes my brain go, “Then there will be room for more NEW books!”

    I feel your pain. I need a new set of shelves after I broke my last one. Had way too many books on the poor thing and it collapsed under the strain.

    Well, kinda. It was anchored to the wall, so it couldn’t fall over completely, but it was severely listing to one side. I ended up putting all the books in boxes, bracing the side of the bookcase and converting it to a “writing nook.”

    Then I went and ordered about ten new books that are going to be read and then boxed up along with all the rest, rofl. #readerproblems

      Haha, ordering more books sounds like a perfect solution! Turning it into a writing nook sounds like a good idea, too. I’m glad to hear that yours didn’t completely crash, that could have been disastrous! My bookshelf is just very tall and skinny — it’s pretty, but it doesn’t hold enough.
