There is no room on my bookshelves. Books are literally squished together, piled on top of eachother. There are even some parts of my shelves that are two books thick! But if I’m honest, that does not stop me buying new books… I go through books like they are going out of fashion, and (unless I really didn’t enjoy it) I love each one and keep them forever – much to my fiancé’s horror… If I told you how often he’s had to fix up the bookshelves after they have collapsed under the weight of books, you’d really be shocked!
|(Not my home… yet)|
But despite all of that, I may have just ordered a couple of books… Because really, how much room can a couple of book take up? 🙂
