No space; too many books!

If you're like me, aka a broke college student living with her parents, then you're tight for space too. If you're REALLY like me (Lucky you..) then you got piles of books lying around in your room because you have no space to put them in! I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this but -


Yup. Those are books in a shopping cart thingy right by my bed. I KNOW. I seriously have little space but looking at this stupid cart every single day was droving me craaaazy. So.

Cue nightstands! Doctor's orders. Stay tuned for my crazy adventure looking for the perfect nightstand. It might include several expletives on my part and a trip to the ER.

Oh you should see where I have books stored. Have built a fort!

Wendy said...

KB, damn! I should have thought of that.. A fort sounds a lot more fun than a flippin' shopping cart, lol.

Girl I do the same thing. My family complains about my books being around the house. They better be happy that something is making me happy! lol MADDOCCCCC!

When you too one day own a home, you STILL won't have enough room for books! You will STIL be driven nuts by this dilemma. Oh woe!

Wendy said...

Bells - OMG, someone else too! Awesome. At least I keep them contained to my room, lol. MADOOOCCCCC!

K - Really?! Ah, crap. I was hoping when I have my own place, this would get a wee less nuts but.. Oh, whatevs!

Welcome to the club! I've started putting boxes on top of shorter bookcases (or any furniture really).. but I put the boxes sideways, and set the books on them like they would be on a shelf. That way the Book-loving-OCD side of me feels a teensy bit better.

I have a notion of what piles of books around the house looks like. LOL!

Good Luck with the book stand search!

Today I posted a review of a grand Steampunkery Book!  Please do check it out, I highly recommend Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar if you want Steampunkery and a mix of many genres.  A new favorite... indeed a huggable book!
