The Books Are Growing

The spare floor in my dining-lounge room is now literally half-covered by piles of books. I have walk-ways but it is all getting a bit ridiculous. I know I need book cases but I am too much of a miser to buy new ones and I haven't come across anything else I like since I got my first two (and no they didn't even make a small dent in the piles).

So now I have two options. The first is to stop buying books, and clear out some of the ones I have - ROFL, as if THAT is ever going to happen!!!! So now I look at option two, moving the piles along the wall down the passage. I am going to try and limit the piles to about six books high (for as long at that lasts) and I have started with the reference books, or vintage books, that I know I won't be looking at regularly. I was thinking about just moving a few piles but I have more books coming on Sunday so I am not really sure I have the luxury.

Of all of the 'problems' in my life, this would have to be the absolute best lol

Just out of curiousity, if you ever decide to move to a different home, how on EARTH are you going to move all those books??

i say build your own bookshelves along the hallway, three bricks high, then a plank of timber for the next shelf, just keep adding more bricks when you need another shelf!
