It‘s a #neverendingstory for me - setting up my home library. I moved into my home 5 years ago in October, and I‘m slowly setting up one of the bedrooms as a library. This past weekend, I unboxed a lot of books to get everything a bit more organized, to the point that I could take this picture and show a bit more of the room. Baby steps, but I‘m happy with the progress!

Thanks @arlenefinnigan and @Cinfhen for a fun #RedRoseSeptember !

Amiable We moved last December, and I also turned one of the bedrooms into a home library! It's the best room in the house, IMO. :) 3w
Tamra We‘ve been in our house a year and still not unpacked. We‘re waiting until next summer when we can redo the floors. I hope that isn‘t a mistake - waiting. My fear is it won‘t get done! 3w
Librarybelle @Tamra I completely understand that! 3w

#24in48 #readathon #shelfie My shelves are making good progress. I kind of have them lumped in genres right now until I get the rest of my shelves built, then the real organizing begins! I've just started my reading, I'm 2 hours behind east coast and as much as I love books? I love sleep too.

I got new bookcases! Now I just have to put all my books on them (I'm worried they won't fit as much as I thought).

christineandbooks Show us when you're done! 3y
Amandajoy I bought two new bookcases this year & thought I'd get everything on with room to spare! Turns out I could just get everything to fit... after culling two boxes. There should be signs on the shelves when you buy them: will hold 25 paperbacks per shelf, stored vertically, just to give you a good visual. 3y

I am guessing that I am not the only one to feel intense #joy when looking at my book shelves. And I am planning on rearranging them very soon which just makes me even more excited 😄📚

Don't have the energy to read; do however have the energy to show off the 'in-progress' pic of my CUSTOM ROTATING BOOKSHELF!! (sorry - couldn't help yelling) My husband designed this for me years ago, but I never had the proper place to brag about it before now. #bookshelfie

Before I became a librarian, one of my jobs was as a builder at Pompanoosuc Mills. As an employee, you could build one piece of furniture a year for yourself for 30% off the purchase price. But you had to do everything yourself, starting with the rough wood. So I built a set of solid oak bookshelves. It amazes me that I used to be able to move these monsters on my own 😀. #uniquefact #augustphotochallenge
