Having a house full of books is about more than providing entertainment or fulfilling a learning requirement. Books are gateways to experience new places and people, launchpads to discovery, and friends waiting to be met. In our family, our book collection is large and constantly growing. At just over 2000 books we only have one problem: shelf space! A book collection is a treasure, but not if you can’t find the book you need or they’re so haphazard that natural discovery is inhibited. So today on the show we’re talking about book organization! We’ll share our methods for taming this beast and hopefully give you some tips and tricks that you can use in your home.
