books ... books ... books ... and not enough room ... until now

So ... I love books ... anyone who knows me knows this to be a fact. But, not only do I love books, I love getting books as well. :) So, as a bookshelf can only hold so many, I had started to stack them on top of each other and in a box, and on top of each other in the box. It was then that I decided to buy another book shelf. So we have before and after pictures.

BEFORE
Notice all the books stacked on the shelves and on other books? (click on any picture for a closer look.)
Ahh ... the box. See the duck tape? It was coming apart because of the weight ... poor faithful box.
The closet (where I put the new bookshelf) before.
AFTER
See all the stacks are gone? :) And the box is gone too! Hurrah!
The new bookshelf ... so pretty.
The new bookshelf ... again.
AFTER AFTER
Yes, even after I set it all up I acquired even more books and had to rearrange again! :) I just love how it looks and holds Every. Single. One. Of. My. Books!!

Hee! It is always so exciting to find that extra needed space ~ especially for books. Boxes just don't seem to do the trick. Now you can FIND your books! It looks so much nicer too!
