Hello Litsy, I try to be more active!!
My library is finishes, including a blanket with arms that I can wrap around myself when reading. It is supercozy, and with the bad weather in the past few weeks, I can say it is super-relaxing to hear the rain against the window while reading!
I will post some #shelfies throughout the day.
Depression is hitting hard, and I often lack the motivation to post, even though I love Litsy and you all 🦆♥️📚

Step 1: move all your read books in the now empty room because you a) still need to buy shelves and b) need the former shelf as your TBR shelf. It was bursting anyway.

Hey Littens, I was really absent these past two month and I actually don't know why. Well, I am back and will be documenting my library building efforts. I get 4 and a half shelves!!! . The other half of the room will be my boyfriend's workbench and 3D printer space! 😁
