I Knew It Was Bad But Really?!?!

The cupboard in the sideboard where small people's books live, getting changed regulary with books from upstairs to avoid reading the same story every single day;

The boys love to choose books and look at pictures and tell each other stories;

There are very few books in the kitchen as I tend to not follow recipes or follow them only once and modify for our use;

The fancy book case for fancy books which now lives in the new space we have created between the front room and the dining room;

The new mega bookcase in the front room, the books continue to the floor behind the sofa;

There are books on the unfinished landing awaiting a new shelf to reside on;

The bookcase under the window in our room, the middle shelf is currently empty as some of these books have moved downstairs, I don't think it'll be empty long;

The shelves next to our bed (my side, excuse the debris) for current reading;

The "over-spill" bookcase in Elizabeth and Nathaniel's room;

The bookcase behind the door;

Nathaniel's bedside table;

The shelf above Elizabeth's bed;

The book case behind the door in Francecsa's room;

And the shelf above her bed;

Francesca hasn't had just as much time in Waterstone's with Daddy that Elizabeth has yet but am sure she'll catch up soon!

So there it is in all it's glory, am sure there are worse habits to have and instill in your children?!

Oh my that IS a lot of books...but I couldn't agree more that there are much worse things! It's always such a joy to see a child interested in books x

That looks like my house... books piled high in every room... except I've got lots in my kitchen too.

Wow, you weren't kidding when you said you had a lot of books!

Kitschy Coo said...

Just wow! That's amazing.

Hee hee! I always say never trust a house/the people in the house where there are no books. I may take up the book photographing project but fear it may take me a while!

love your book problem we have one too.

The only room with none is my kitchen except the ones due back at the library

I'm so glad it isn't just my house that has every available space covered with books.

You're living in a library! I actually think my books are one of the things that stop me wanting to move house. Ever. It would be a logistical back-breaking nightmare to pack and move them all. And I probably have half as many as you! Hope you're settled where you are ;)
