I Need More Space....

....for my books, that is.



Seriously, my bookshelf is a disgrace. An EMBARRASSMENT. I have no rhyme or reason to it. At first it was organized all prettily, but then I started buying more and more and more and destroying the open space that I did have. Each of these shelves are double-booked. It makes me so sad that my books' home is so cramped up. I've been eying Mr. Jen's shelves (which are more disgraceful than mine, I assure you!) but he won't have it. So I'm looking for something that takes up little space and holds a considerable amount of books.

First place I looked? CSN.



I'm loving this spine bookcase. It doesn't take up much space, which is wonderful because my office is really small, and it holds a crap ton of books. (Also, I'm wondering why I haven't shopped at CSN before! Not only do they have awesome bookcases, but I love their computer chairs and this laptop messenger bag, which is awesome because I don't have one for my stinky ancient laptop!) I recall seeing in in The Story Siren's office and have been interested in it ever since.

If I can talk Mr. Jen into buying this for me for my birthday, I will definitely be reviewing it on the blog. If you, like me, don't have much space (or the means to build a beautiful wall of books just yet!) I'd definitely take a look into CSN. They've got some great bookshelf options :)

Do any of you have this bookshelf? Is there another one that you'd like to point out for spacially-challenged folk like myself? PLEASE SHARE! I am counting on you guys, because I can't make this decision on my own.

You wouldn't buy a bookshelf without asking your friends first, would you?

  1. My bookshelf is almost to the max too. I started looking in to hanging wall shelves for more space. I have a blank space above my couch that I thought would be good for that. I may need to check out this website. I've heard of it, just never shopped there.

  2. You weren't kidding! They are stuffed. I really like the one from CSN. When we move my friend Matt is going to make me some custom bookshelves...I cannot wait!

  6. I live in a studio with one broken book case.. I have been looking for new ones, but you just made me realize I need to be more innovative, space wise that is..

  8. Will you buy me another bookshelf too? I've almost maxed mine out! They are starting to pile up in random places, and I hate when things aren't organized!
