How large is your personal/family collection of books? And where do you keep them?I couldn't pass up the opportunity to photograph all our books and show you what we really have. So, we'll start with my daughter's bookshelf:
And here is my son's:
This is my TBR pile, which is on a top shelf of my desk in my office. That pile on the right is what I'm supposed to read for Fall into Reading, along with several books on my Nook.
Downstairs, in our living room, we have three bookshelves. This one has some more recent reads as well as some old reference books:
This shelf has books I haven't read in many years. One of the things on this shelf is all the books on religions that I read when I was in my 20s and fascinated with religion. I'd love to find time to re-read some of these books someday:
Then there is our shelf of very old books:
I love these books but also worry about them. I really should learn more about how to take care of them. I have a huge, beautiful Shakespeare book that is in poor shape now. If anyone knows anything about caring for old books, let me know!
That's it, for the most part. I have a few other books here and there but I try to keep them all on one of these shelves. We also have some library books, which we keep separate so we don't lose them. What about you? What does your book collection look like?
