New bookshelves

For the first time since June or July 2009, all my books are unpacked.

This shelf has my fiction collection on the top and most of my nonfiction collection on the lower shelves.

This shelf houses my to-be-read books. Alas.

My husband built these lovely shelves, and I’m thrilled to have them! My books aren’t exactly organized yet, but at least they’re accessible! Having the boxes unpacked and in aesthetically pleasing shelves will help both of us feel more settled in our new home, too.

I was tempted to wait to take and post photos until the room was picked up and the shelves were more organized, but I decided you’d probably rather see the shelves sooner, even if it means you’ll have to ignore a bit of clutter. 🙂

  1. What’s sad is that these are larger than the ones I built in in Arkansas, and they’re already mostly full 😉
