Ideas For Storing and Stacking Books

Do You Use a Real Bookcase?

I don't have a bookcase or bookshelves, but I do have a fair amount of books. In my bedroom, I store them by stacking them and propping them up on my nightstand. In my living room, there's a ledge where I set my coffee table books with their covers facing forward. I've also learned to use little odds and ends, accessories, and books themselves as bookends. I actually used to simply stack my books on the floor in one tall, wobbly column. Because I'd rather not take up more space with a bookcase, I just make do without one.

How about you? Do you store your books on a real bookcase or bookshelves? Or do you keep them on a table or somewhere else?

You know, this gives me an idea, because I've been agonizing over putting this very large bookcase back in my bedroom... I just don't have a big enough room for everything! I'm thinking of turning the bookshelf into a workdesk space instead with some top shelves... perhaps I'll do this with the books I do have!

I finally have a bookcase! I couldn't stand all my books in a big messy pile. I needed to clean it up!

I use a bookcase now! I used to stack them and they always toppled over—making a huge mess. :(
