After reading about how Extra Organised stores her books, I thought I’d take a chance to review my books and where they are stored around our new house. (By the way readers, help me remember to use OUR not MY… I need to share, and using sharing pronouns! I have to get out of the bad habits pronto!)
After three years of living with my parents, in a room LINED with books, I got a bit over seeing books around me. Living in the loft, I hid most of my books behind closed doors. I didn’t own a book shelf, and had only the skinniest shelf for displaying books, as shown below:
Well, the new house came with a great little built in book shelf, which I’ve used for what few books I own, and many other ornamental items, such as three birdcages. Here’s a photo whip around of what my books are stored.
How do you like your books? Lying down or like a library? Do you face them out like they do in book stores, and increasingly, libraries?
