With a topic of literary love for February, and whatever it is about Spring that makes a person want to reorganize the entire house, I’ve got my heart set on some pretty fantastic bookcase ideas for my paper darlings. It almost makes me want to start a pinterest account just so I can keep up on the inspiration!
I grew up with bookcases and I have them in every room of the house, on just about every wall. Most of them are crammed full of books and games and bins of toys. I keep telling myself more bookcases will give me space to spread things out…but I know I’m just kidding myself. Still, it would be nice if I could unpack all the record albums I have stored in the garage. 🙂
I don’t seem to have a problem with purging the toys the kids have outgrown, but I have a hard time parting with books.
However, as much as I want to keep them all, this Spring I think I might have to pass a few along with hopes that someone will enjoy them for more than just their good looks. And then I can play with turning my bookcases into a beautiful feature of the home, rather than the crammed, cluttered storage space they seem to be now.
One thing is certain: there’s an endless supply of ideas out there. Do you display your books with pride, or pass them along to others?
