Bookshelf Ramble =)

   I have been thinking for days now about how I hate having one tiny bookshelf (that really isn't meant to be a bookshelf lol) and I can never just SEE all of my books in my collection at once. This drives me NUTS! There are books in boxes, books in closets, books at my parents house even books in reusable bags behind doors?!?! Oh no. Time to get this collection controlled :) I am always on the look out for books. At garage sales, used item stores, used book stores, online classifieds... I am building an AMAZING collection - all to be hidden away.

   Ok so with the space given in my little appartment I do have to settle. Someday when I win the lotto I shall have something similar to these (humor me here! :D ) hahaha but honestly I just dream of this!

(Dog too!!! Not too sure about the colour co-ordination however?! lol)

(A ladder, Oh a Ladder .... Love this so much! Space, space, space!)

   But due to the settling factor *takes a pin and "pops" the fantasy library, space and organization dreams* I shall be settling for this beauty from Ikea (If all measurements work out):

Hummmm.... lol classy ;-) I am very excited though this is going to allow me to display SOOOO many more books! (And maybe, just maybe buy some more for the collection :D )

I'd love to see or hear from you what your dream/fantasy/library/book nook would look like :) 

   - Peace, love and bookshelves! Amanda


  1. Hi Amanda,

    I stumbled across your blog, and I am intrigued. I love getting book recommendations, and I am constantly on the hunt for something new to read.

    As to your search for the perfect bookshelf, it is a problem that I am constantly plagued with!! I never have enough room to store my collection. I have currently spread over 3 bookshelves like your IKEA find, an old entertainment unit, and countless piles tucked in end tables and basically anywhere I can find space.

    This is a bookstore near where my cousin lives, and he took me to it when I was visiting. I fell in love with the style, and I am waiting to get my own house so i can create a room just like this!

    I'll keep checking back for new posts. Keep putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard as the case may be) and follow your dreams. Find a story to tell and run with it, and who knows, maybe one day, someone will be blogging about your book.

    Peace and blessings,

  2. Interesting post! =)
