The Bookstye: Before

Is anyone else really annoyed by the capscha that now appears when following someone on Blogger? Anyway . . .

My bookshelf arrived today and while it's all set up and functioning, I'm going to wait to actually review it. Because if it crumbles in the night in a couple of days, I want to make sure I report it. LOL!

But this was my book mess before the shelves -


This was the bulk of my TBR pile . . . on my floor. The first three piles from left to right plus the tiny pile out in front. The next three piles are all of my DVDs. Since I was using my DVD shelf as a bookcase, I didn't have anywhere else to put my DVDs except on the floor.

The DVD-case-playing-bookcase. Nice and wobbly and not meant to hold the weight of books. But I've been using it like this for years. It functioned. The bookcase itself is reversed for books that I hold on to and will read again . . . eventually.


The second TBR pile on the other side of my room consisting of this year's BEA haul. I am just sorely lacking actual shelving space but man, do I have a lot of floor.

Later in the week, the aftermath . . .

Those are some seriously impressive piles. In my house, my dogs or cat would have those knocked down in a heartbeat. Not sure what I'm going to do when I run out of shelf space, but I have a feeling that the time to figure that out is coming soon...

Nice piles. So many great books in there. Hope your bookcase is great.

I Spy some Supernatural!!

I have the exact dvd shelf thing. I'm surprised yours hasn't collapsed from the books. Mine is at a permanent lean to the left now.

But they look so great all stacked up that way! Can't wait to see the after pictures! Have fun!

I honestly can look at those stacks all day..

I totally use the floor to stack my books too. I have no room in my room for a book shelf at all! So if they don't fit in my bins... they get stacked on the floor!

I have to clean out my shelves and reorganize my books, too. Your post just reminded me of it -- I've been putting the task off for far too long!

Good luck with the shelving!

wow! and I thought we had a lot of books. I bow to your collection because I am unworthy...and sincerely hope you don't live anywhere where earthquakes happen, because they'd never find you under all that stuff :oP
