I’m joining in with Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer‘s book blogger hop again this week, where they post a question which you and other bloggers answer, hopping from blog to blog to see people’s answers. This week, the question is…
Do you have books stacked in every room of your house or are you strictly a believer that books belong on bookshelves?
And the answer is yes, there are books in pretty much every room of the house bar the bathroom and (if you count cookery books) in the kitchen. The ones stacked tend to be those just bought or picked up from the library that haven’t made it to shelves or ones I’m reading.
Stacks tend to be anywhere and everywhere, on the floor by chairs, on table tops, by the side of the bed – especially by the side of the bed as I read a lot at night before I go to sleep. They are never that high though or at risk of toppling over because I am quite a neat freak too. Eventually, the books have to go away and that’s when they end up on the book shelves.
Like my book stacks, there are bookcases in most rooms of my house too, though I use them for displaying knick-knacks as well as books. The main book bookcases are in my living room and spare room. They aren’t particularly neat and never in order but for the main part books to read go in the living room, books read go in the spare room. That’s about as much of a system as I have.
What about you, where can you find books in your house? Do you have a system for your shelves and book storage?
