Books Everywhere!

I was looking around my apartment today and realized that I have books literally everywhere! I mean, it's kind of ridiculous.

My place isn't that big, well I guess it's big for a single gal living in Chicago by herself, but still. So I only have two actual bookcases and they only are about 3 1/2 feet tall and a couple feet wide. For a crazy book freak like myself that just simply does not cut it. They were already full of books when I moved in and it's not like I was going to STOP buying books. Let's get serious people!

So I took a little glance around. There's my nightstand, otherwise known as bookshelf #3, where I have my Kindle and 7 other books piled up. And I just recently removed some books from there to just place a few on top of my actual bookcases (so those don't even look nice and neat anymore, darnit!).  I see that on the end table by my couch I have two books... Oh, on my desk there are a couple I just picked up from the library. On my kitchen counter I have the two I just bought today (that was on accident, I simply should not be allowed in bookstores ever!). And in the lovely wicker basket I have in my living room, which is supposed to store pillows and blankets, I have 1...2...10 books in there.

Anyone else seem to have this problem? Not saying it's a bad thing. I like that literally everywhere you look in my apartment you can find a book. Does it make me look like a big nerd? Probably but who cares! I love me some books :)

When one loves books, one cannot help herself. Guilty as charged. :)

As long as it's not just me ;)

My coworker just told me I was obsessed with books. I took it as a compliment!

Last October, I scoured my room for books to put on my first-ever personal bookshelf, and I had well over a hundred stacked on my bureau, in various purses, stuffed in my sock drawer, under the bed, in the closet, etc. OVER A HUNDRED.

Not a bad problem we have, though. :P
