These are the new shelves. Actually they're the old shelves, but with an addition. Where the blue books are, I used to only have a half set. Luke bought the rest of the pieces to finish out that set so not that entire wall is books.

These are the shelves on either side of the sofa. They are vintage printables that honestly I'd really like to replace with something more authentic-looking and old book covers that I bought at the antiquarian book fair.
One more picture of the whole thing, plus kitty.

And Reader Friends, this isn't all of it! There are currently piles on my dresser, on my nightstand, and on the kitchen table. There is also a shelf of cookbooks in the dining room. I am out of control. The worst thing is that I have absolutely no plans to stop. I see people say things like "I'm not buying a single book next year, I'm going to read what I have" and it just blows my mind. I'm going to read what I have too, but I'm also going to keep buying, especially used books. Speaking of, I think there's a box from Barnes and Noble on it's way that I ought to be looking for...
