Our house is overflowing with books. My books, his books, our books, the kids books. Books are everywhere. The living room, the loft, the bedrooms, the toy room, even the dining room. It would be hard to find a room in this house that doesn't have at least one book. Our books used to be organized. I had the fiction in alphabetical order by the author's last name and every series was in order too. Non-fiction may not have been in library order but at least it was grouped by subject on its own bookshelf. My father-in-law laughs that the librarian comes out at home but hey at least I could find my books! Now my older daughter has rearranged them, moving the books from one bookshelf to another, putting them in random piles on shelves, and carrying them off who knows where. At least most of the books that I actually need to read are in our bedroom so she hasn't gotten to those. My review books are piled on the night stand and the books that I just want to read take up the bottom two shelves of our bookcase (yes, they are double stacked). We still have books in boxes from when we moved and before we moved we donated a LOT of books to the library to thin our collection a bit. Yep, we are just slightly obsessed with books around here!
