But seriously, it's the library of awesome.
In reality, I'm living in a 1000-square-foot rancher, and there's not quite room for a library. And honestly, I don't have as many books as a lot of people, mostly because I'm A) frugal and LOVE the library, B) generally only purchase/keep books that I'd read more than once, and C) donated/sold a bunch of books before I moved.
But still, I've bought six books in the past two weeks.
Anyway, getting to the point of this post -- I built a bookcase. It's about 7 feet tall and 5.5 feet wide, and it's soooo pretty, and I have plenty of room to expand my collection. Also, thanks to the brilliance of IKEA, I will one day be able to expand it to my heart's content. One day, I'll have that library, dammit.
Until then, I present to you.... my bookcase!
|The big picture. I'd say I have about 150 books in it, plus a few more that are lent out to people. (Click to see larger version.)|
Time to highlight some shelves....
|My immediate TBR. Isn't it delicious?|
|YA-a-palooza over here.|
|This is my favorite shelf. Aren't they just droolworthy? And a boomerang I got in Australia.|
|Harry Potter shelf 1 of 2. All the way to the right is a paperback of Philsopher's Stone I bought in London.|
|Harry Potter dedicated shelf 2 of 2. Audiobooks!|
|Two high school obsessions that I still re-read -- Buffy episode novelizations and the Roswell High series that inspired the show Roswell. That white thing is a piece of coral reef that washed ashore.|
Tell me about your dream bookcase!
