I thought I would take some photos to demonstrate the quantity of books in my parents house. All of them, I would expect, are read. They aren’t for show, or nostalgia – well I’m sure some stay from a nostalgic point of view, such as the ones on antiques, surfing and teaching physical education.
And that completes the previous formal living room/part time my bedroom.
Now for the casual living area at the back of the house:
My brother’s bedroom… and also at times the formal dining room. We have a house that’s very adaptable!
Now into the casual dining area, off the kitchen.
And for the smallest room in the house, the study, which… also had a previous life as a (tiny) bedroom for my brother.
Interestingly, there’s two bedrooms with no bookcases or shelves. And our three bathrooms are spartan of books… well as far as a permanent place for books!
Can you see from the first three photos why I have felt a little… cluttered? I’ll be moving into my parent’s bedroom whilst they’re away, and I’ll relish the wart on walls, and blank wardrobe doors 🙂
How does you home compare for this quantity of books, and shelves?
