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!
