I have the small room at the back of the house which I called the libary when I moved in 30 years ago.  The library has moved into the second bedroom which is the guest room , into the living room and my own bedroom now and I still have piles.  Most of these bookcases though are the two or three shelf bookcases you buy at Target etc.  My dream is to have floor to ceiling bookcases . 

One small two shelf bookcase holds my collection of textbooks.  I collect primary readers.  Yes I have the whole Dick and Jane collection and never paid more than a couple of dollars. I have all the readers I read as a child in 5th and 6th grade.  You can see where my interest in history comes from .  I read about the TVA , Norway during the WW2, and Cyrus McCormick.  (One of my great thrills on one of my cross country trips was to visit his farm outside Staunton Virginia)

I have out grown the bookcases hence the piles .  Going to have to do something I cannot afford a bigger house !!!
