bookshelf building husband

C4GKT5MVMAABJMeI have always wanted a man that would build me bookshelves!! My sweet husband just built me these lovely wood bookshelves pictured above and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Aren’t they fantastic? I mean, is there anything better than a home with bookshelves full of books? It’s like that quote by Cicero, “A home without books is a body without a soul.” I just want to walk by and pet them. Every time I visit someone’s house, I go straight to their books to see what treasures they own. 

The only problem with my new shelves is that I need way more shelves!!! When I lived with my mother I had a whole room for my books and now I have only one wall! So begins my weeding. How do you decide which ones to part with? It’s so hard!!!!!!  According to my LibraryThing account I own 2,482 books (https://www.librarything.com/catalog/amanaceerdh/yourlibrary) and I need to get rid of at least half. It’s like slowly being tortured each time I put one of them in the get rid of pile.  😦  I know only you other book loving souls out there will understand my dilemma! I would love to see pics of your shelves and hear your advice on weeding if any of you feel like sharing!! 🙂  Happy reading, lovelies!!!
