@shelfies This photo shows at most a 10th of all our books (daughter and i are roomies) when we moved almost 3 years ago the huge living room was overwhelming so we made a hall like library of shelves on one side. Eventually hope to have carpenter put in built-in bookshelves most everywhere possible. This view is diagonally from my bedroom door across the 'library/living room' (sofa behind those short shelfs to the western door. Oh, and the shelf on right side of photo is one end a of a shallow U shaped bookshelf constructed by putting two prefab bookshelves at right angles from wall and running boards across the shelves. On the top is a 'display' shelf for various 3 D art.
