What do you do when you have too many books?

This isn’t a book review. It’s a question. I’d like to know what you do when you have too many books? Or, does your world match the poster in my kid’s room by David Shannon which says Never Enough Books?Photo on 2013-02-27 at 09.40

I enjoyed this article today on Houzz and thought I would share it with you all. It has some great ideas and tips. And it also made me feel more okay with my decision to park a big bookshelf in my entrway. I know most other people would put something else there, but I like to walk by books on my way to everywhere. I only wish I kept it dusted more frequently and a little more organized! It would help if my family didn’t think every shelf is for stashing things they don’t want to put away- like lego creations, pokemon cards and superheroes action figures. But, sometimes I think my kiddos leave their treasures on the bookshelf because they are trading them out for other treasures- great books to read!

How do you keep your home library under control? I’d love to hear your ideas!

    There’s not such a thing as too many books. I like the idea of a bookstore in the entry way. If I had an entry way I would put one there too. An entry way sets the stage for the whole house. You are showing people what is important in your house. Love it!

      I guess, if we’ve all come to a consensus, the question should have been, what do you do when you run out of shelf space? And the answer would be… buy more shelves. Am I right? Yeah, I think so.   Come see my blog- it’s all about books!
