I hope that you enjoy it.
In case you are wondering why we start and end in the office. Here is the story.
The authors starting with A used to be in my Family room, letters continued into the Master Bedroom, and the end of the alphabet was in my Office. However, the Family Room shelves were overcrowded and I needed to shift books around.
After packing away the very old TBR books (which are more the 8 years old), I had space in my Office. I could have moved everything backwards but decided to work smarter, not harder. I shifted the leftover recent TBRs that didn't fit in the two bookcases in my living room to the end of the Office shelving. Then I shifted from the end of the alphabet until I had filled two of the three bookcases there. The first bookcase in my Office now holds the As and some of the Bs which gave me room to spread out the rest of my crowded Family Room shelves without greatly disturbing the books in the Master Bedroom.
BTW, I am not a big beer drinker. We had to pack up my HS Media Center last fall so that the ceiling could be repaired and new carpeting laid and a local beer distributor gave us bunches of boxes to use. They are really a perfect size for loading with books. You can get lots of books in a box and can still lift the box. I brought some home when we unpacked because I knew I had to reorganize my book collection.
The plastic crates in the closet (and a few more) used to hold my recent TBR books but I could never find anything. The crates weren't well organized and what I wanted was usually in the bottom layer.
I do have all my books listed on my LibraryThing account (username kmartin802) and I have set up a collection for those books that are in storage by box. So, if I decide I need one of those books, I can find out just which box it is in.
I am feeling so organized. What do you think?
Edited to add:
Oops, I forgot about this pile. These are new adult books that arrived during my Christmas Break and unread story collections. They will not be sitting on that chair in my living room by Monday but right now I don't know where I am going to pile them.
Ok, got it! Here is a revamped picture of the top of my entertainment center in the living room. I hate blocking my boy and girl reading but that will encourage me to read those books faster.
