I haven’t done a lot of of personal posts yet on this blog, save for a couple of book hauls, but I figured I would add an Aside tag that I could use to just convey general messages to people that follow me. Anything I post with this tag will still pertain to reading in some way. It’s mostly meant to encompass all the other thing that are important to me aside from reviews, bookhauls and memes. And yes, that’s me up there in the image I attached to this post. 🙂
This week, I really wanted to share my excitement over my BRAND NEW BOOKSHELF!
I have a second bookshelf in my house, but it’s not nearly as nice so I have it tucked away in another room. It’s also a bit smaller than this one, so I was really out of space on it. Like stacking books in various places throughout my home like some sort of book hoarder. I convinced Mr. Bastion to let me pinch some pennies and spring for a better shelf I could put right in the heart of our house.
It came today while I was at the gym. I was so excited to see it I took the quickest shower of my life so I could put it together. Of course, some assembly was required and of course I’m a total nincompoop when it comes to following directions so I had to disassemble it and re-assemble the top half correctly at least once.
Anyway, now it’s done! I split my physical books between my two shelves, bringing the majority of my favorites over to this one. The top two shelves are all of my recent bookhauls from the past month or so that I have to read ASAP!
Let me know what you think? Do you have your books on display in your place? Are you running out of space like I was? How do you combat that besides buying more shelves?
