I thoroughly enjoy reading. I love a good book to escape into and for me that’s just as often a design book as a work of fiction. I’m also a member of a book club and personally insist on having the actual book rather then using an e-reader. I’m not normally a techno dinosaur but for me reading is also a romance, it’s about turning the page, physically feeling your actual progress and the sentimental smell of past reads (aka dust!). So giving these treasures a home is important and can be a conundrum if space is tight (or over flowing in my case). I no longer keep everything I read (and my local charity shops are doing well I hope from my book donations) but there are plenty I think I’ll read again or are good reference books need to find a home in my house.
You may have seen my post about my home office becoming a guest room here. This means I also have to put my design cap on about where to house some of my books. I'm not talking necessarily about organising but keeping it tidy and accessible.
So what tips can I offer on managing a surfeit of books?
