My husband is both very intellectual and a bit of a spendthrift (still trying to manage that being the penny pincher I am
) so as you can imagine we have an obscene amount of books in our apartment and we're constantly acquiring more. The problem is the more I do to add space for more books the faster he fills it we currently have a large 5 shelf book self in our room as well as a very small one in the living that holds books, papers and various other items (I attached pictures of both). Both of them are in a state of disarray and we STILL have at least a dozen books without a home and he just bought more. I can't seem to think of a solution short of lining the walls of our office with empty bookshelves. AND he frequently rereads all of them and many of them are collectors editions or hold sentimental value so getting rid of them isn't an option. Any suggestions?
