I'm not a big collector, I'm not really into trinkets or souvenirs. I do have a collection of snowmen that come out during the winter so when I heard the word collect the thing that takes up a lot of space in our home are books.
I am a collector of books.
Most homeschool families do have a lot of books. We currently have nine book cases in our home and most of them are crammed full of books.
I took a picture of this shelf because I think it is the only one that looks this nice.
Each of my girls have a book shelf in their room with their favorite books and the rest are downstairs. We have shelves organized by subject and some shelves that are organized by size. That way I can fit more books on each shelf.
I love old books. We usually buy them at garage sales, the library book sale, and when we started getting rid of our younger books we started visiting our local mini library booths around town.
Now that my youngest child is almost 12 I have finally started getting rid of books and homeschool books. It is very sad and it will be a slow process, but it is time!! Although I have a few picture books that were my kids favorites and I will probably always keep our Christmas story books.
What about you? Do you have a lot of books in your home?
