Unlike other bookworms I don’t have a bookshelf to display all of my lovely books at home or at university so I have to improvise. Today I wanted to share with you how I store my books and see if any of your have tips on storing books.In my first year of university I have two wall shelves I used to store my books but when I first moved into my second year flat I had nothing!
Luckily for me my landlord was nice enough to let me put up a shelf because there is no room for a standing bookcase where I live.
At the moment I use this shelf as my TBR shelf but for books that I need to get to sooner than others on my TBR. I know I could put up more shelves but I have a small room and I don’t think it would look right to have lots of shelves everywhere.
As a bookworm I clearly have more books than the ones on this shelf so I had to improvise and find a space for my books where they wouldn’t get damaged.
At the bottom of my bed I have two boxes. One for food and now one for books.
In here I keep the books I have read, along with books in a series I still need to get to or TBR books that can wait for now. Everything is split up into piles. I keep one book from each series on my shelf and once I have read it, it then goes back into this box and the next one comes out.
I do wish I could have them all on display but right now that is just not possible. At the same time though having this storage situation makes me more hesitant to buy books I don’t need which is great when you are on a student budget.
How do you store your books? Do you have any ideas I could use to help with my book situation?
