Jacinda and I were re-arranging furniture last night and the issue came up with all of my books. I admit they aren’t pretty to look at, but like CD’s or DVD’s, I just like having them. I fixed the CD problem by putting them into 4 large (200+ capacity) folders. You see, I use to be the senior guy in the music department at our local Bible house, which was bought out by Berean. I got a lot, I mean a lot, of free CD’s, but the addiction hasn’t stopped since I left the company over 8 years ago. I absolutely love music. Same thing happened with DVD’s. All my cases were emptied and I filed them all into 3 big DVD binders. So now, a whole bookcase full of CD’s and DVD’s now fit in our armoire underneath the TV.
So, we come to the books. What do you guys do with them? Do you buy all of your books? Do you just check them out at the Library? What do you do when you’re done with them? I know Heather reads tons of books, but I don’t remember seeing a bookcase in your house. What do you do? I agree with Jacinda in that I have too many just sitting out (2 bookcases full, with more in the garage), and especially all the softcovers don’t really "look pretty" sitting in there. I do like the look of Hardback’s, so we’ll probably keep most of those. Any solutions? What should I do?
