If you're reading this post chances are you fit into one of three categories - you have lots of books, you have lots and lots of books, or you have lots and lots and LOTS of books. So, where do you store them? Last summer I made a shelf out of an old piece of wood, painted it, and bought approx. 75cent shelf holders (or something) at The Home Depot. I simply nailed it all together on my wall/screwed it. This easily stores the majority of my series of books. All the rest of the books are scattered elsewhere in the house in other bookshelves. SO, I also have a white hassock (sp?) I inherited from my late (as in "passed away") aunt and I store misc. stuff on that. I keep this in my closet. Other books go in and on top of the nightstand.
