If you’re reading this blog, I’m guessing you’re a reader, not just of blogs but of books. Lots and lots ofnbooks. If you’re like me, you have stacks of books in every room. I live in a 1926 house which is overwhelmed with charm but short on bookshelves and closet space.
Thanks to Container Store I have some storage solutions. I keep large flat rolling boxes under my bed filled with books. I try to keep them sorted by author but it rarely sticks for more than a few days.
The public library helps keep my book madness under control. One basket on my night stand for the 5 or so “rented” books and swap them out biweekly.
The biggest source of help has been my Kindle. With one thin device, I have hundreds of books! I like reading on my kindle. I love the instant gratification of chatting up a new-to-me author on Twitter and reading her book minutees later. It’s awesome when we travel too. Now I have room for clothes and snacks in my carryon instead of a rolling library.
What about you? Are you overrun with books? Are you lucky enough to have bookshelves, or eve, gasp, a library!?!?!?!?! Are you a rereader and have trouble parting with any book, like me? Or do you keep at most 4 to 5 books at any one time and have free book shelf space.
Color me curious.
