Bookshelves

I finally found the misplaced bag of pegs necessary to finish putting the shelves on the bookcases. This enabled a happy hour of roughly sorting books into genres and onto the right cases. (Alphabetical order comes later.) I was finished long before I thought i would be, because - somewhat shockingly - I have enough bookshelves.

Well, I would have enough bookshelves if I didn't have a lot of still-packed boxes of paper which will also be going on the shelves. And it's just as well I have so many books left in the U.S. - with them, I would have no where near enough bookshelves. Also, the CDs and DVDs don't have a home yet, but they're not going on these shelves either. Temporarily - and with many caveats - I am in the surreal and wonderful situation of having enough bookshelves.

The Plokta Cabal have come up with a clever solution. Their paperbacks are double stacked with the rear row spine out, and the front row, spine up. You can make out both rows quite easily.

What a great idea! We must try that (double stacking - there is much of it in our house...)

We had (well still have) a small bookcase that had an adjustable shelf. When we first moved to Whitchurch from Cambridge we couldn't find the pegs anywhere.

Three years later when we moved again we found that the removers had taped them to the bottom of the bookcase.

Sigh.

I'm relieved I found my pegs as soon as I did!

Well I'm in the position of not quite having enough bookshelves. So congratulations.

I'm not really sure you can have enough bookshelves period, only enough bookshelves for now. :)
