You never truly know how many books you have until you have to move them.
I had been double stacking my bookcases for years, like a whole hidden shelf of books behind the ones showing. Yep, that is what I’m talking about here. So when I started packing to move to our new home, it became quite clear that I have a generous collection of books. Books I am completely unwilling to part with, some books I may never read again, some books I read every few years and fall in love all over again, a few books that were really challenging and are a testaments of my literary prowess and some of my favorites: books that were given to me by the people I love.
Our new home is amazing, filled with all the things we had been dreaming about. One of the most wonderful things about our new home is that there is a little room off of our kitchen with a fireplace that has become our library! Yes, our library, my books now can have a proper home and all those libraries I have been saving on Pinterest will come into play.
