Books & Their Cases

{the polka dot book is my bible}

I have a little stack of books that I'd like to read this summer. Now, I just need to make myself sit still and read them. I have a couple started. Maybe I should focus on 1 at a time? Do you juggle books? I read Hold On To Your Kids years ago....love it....need to read it again. Highly recommend it.



The boys have some fun new books, too. We've been collecting some books by Simon Basher {Basher Books}

{have not thought about what to place on the wall....may just ignore it. Apartment walls=no nail holes, please}

I've also been moving some things around. This post is the before. I switched up the book cases a bit. It's now our own mini library. I love our little collection.....many were acquired through paperbackswap.com or found at random garage or book sales {I love 25cent book finds}

Now that I have slimmed down the contents of this room.....well, it's finally feeling less cluttered. Which makes me enjoy being in there again. I used to run past it.....trying not to look at the chaos it was. I still plan to slim things down again. I'm determined. Baby steps.

I think Ikea may be calling for me....."Come visit me. I have lingon berry jam and cute green organizing things....and those white book cases you really want.....and huge Swedish chocolate bars for $1"

Ikea knows my love language.

I'm currently reading The Fitting Room by Kelly Minter on my Kindle for PC (free software), but I do tend to juggle books (even within the Bible) depending on what 'season' I happen to be in.

Your room looks very organised... couldn't have done it better myself. :D

Love your bookshelves! Love IKEA too! Although i usually end up walking out there overwhelmed, not purchasing anything. We don't have any more room for anything else in this tiny house though...

Dreaming of going to Ikea with you, too.I SO need some of those organizing 'things'! And somehow I must convince my husband that we need those shelves.....Do you know the name of them (so I can search online)?

I was thinking you have your own library before I even read that part!! I focus on one book at a time and it still takes me a month or two to finish it.

The bookshelves are called Expedit :)

You're thinning out the bookshelves! Yay for you. What a great feeling to de-clutter. We have been hiking our butts off and missing y'all terribly! xoxo
