Bookshelves!

Saturday, October 20, 2012

Because I've recently moved into a new place and my book storage situation is significantly better than it used to be, I thought I'd share with you some pictures of my new bookshelves!

My husband and I have always wanted to have a library, but living in campus housing for the entirety of our marriage, we thought this was probably not going to be an option for several years. However, we were excited upon reaching our new apartment to see the perfect spot for a library. It is tiny, but beautiful (to us, at least!). :)


So there it is, the library in all its itty-bitty glory. 

I also have a TBR shelf:


In our last place, this was the bookshelf, and the TBR pile was a series of highly stacked books next to my nightstand, so this is a huge improvement. 

Finally, the baby has a bookshelf. It is kind of sparse at the moment, but I'm hoping to fill it soon. :) 


So there you have it, my new book situation! The only thing I didn't grab a picture of was the towering pile of books on my nightstand (comprised of parenting books, scriptures, and the "immediate" TBR of library books).

  1. What a lovely little library! The boyfriend and I just got our own apartment together and there is so much space for bookshelves, so I definitely understand how excited you are to have yours!

  2. Isn't it great having the space for books? (And I love looking at other people's bookshelves. :D) My husband and I have lived in apartments where we were busting at the seams and still lining walls with bookshelves even if it cut into the room a little too much. But now we actually have the space for shelves and they're starting to overflow a little. One thing I do insist upon anywhere that we live: I want to be surrounded by books! :)

    1. I completely agree. Someday we'll have a room completely devoted to books and I'll be able to bring all my books from my parents' house... I can't wait. :)

  4. I love your TBR shelf! That's what I DREAM of having - two or three shelves of unread books, rather than ALL THE SHELVES. I might even have to bookmark this page as inspiration. Hooray for re-arranging books, mini-libraries and organisation, I say - nothing quite beats having all your books exactly where you want them! :D

    1. Thanks! I must admit I always worry a little that I will run out... but I don't think that will actually happen. I'm forever wanting to add more.

    1. Thanks! We were so glad it fit, because I have no idea what we would have put in otherwise.
