Since it’s summer, I have time to do some things I don’t always get around to during the school year and, while my husband often calls it wasting time, I call it a better way to enjoy a hobby. One of those many things is organizing my books but not in such a way to invite real labor – that would be work after all. Unlike Rike, who recently wrote a post titled Storing All those Books, my books aren’t so neatly organized in reality but online it’s a completely different story.
Right now my books are currently living in boxes as the result of a move within the last year. I’m not happy about it, but it is what it is. In our old house, my husband obtained some old kitchen cabinets, refinished them, and hung them in a storage room off our garage for my book storage. Honestly, it was one of the most romantic things he’s ever done for me. In our new house, I don’t have a space like that yet, but we’ll work something out eventually, though I’m sure I’ll have to provide some incentive. Yet even when I had my cabinets, I placed books where ever I had room without really organizing them.
