Does Your Bookcase Look Like This?

Overflowing with school books...


Overflowing with regular books...


Overflowing with more school books and supplies...


The catch-all for shells, Star Wars cards, Bakagan, Legos, beads, various jewelry, pennies and dimes, game pieces, Barbie shoes and one baking soda and vinegar volcano (not to mention too many books)...



And overflowing with even more books, plus a couple of wallets containing library cards?


It is this evening's project. I hope I can whittle down the books that I want and need out and can either put some in storage or better yet delegate some to the yard sale bin for this spring's annual event. Wish me luck! I love books and getting rid of them is hard. I would just purchase a second bookcase but funds are tight and so is space. Purging is a must.

We are constantly looking for more shelf space. Mine look just like yours, only I have more dust than you. :D

I know how you feel about purging books! I have boxes in my basement just stuffed with books because my husband needs to build me shelves (we're in a new house). I found that going through my books was good for me though, because I ended up pulling out books that I hadn't really cared for upon reading, but didn't want to get rid of because...they were books. LOL. Good luck with your purging!

Mother- My shelves have plenty of dust... you just can't see it because the pictures were not in focus... there was a method to my madness!

Some of my shelves look like that! Except I have 3 bookcases for a total of 10 shelves. LOL I think I'm addicted to books. I really don't like purging books, but *pat self on back* I did give some to the library last month. :)

Wow, I thought I was the only one who "double shelved" books! Do your shelves sway in the middle like mine?
