and slowly it goes . . . .








So.

I have all the A's, B's and C's shelved - Yay!!!!!




(except for those that might have been over-looked the first time around the house pulling books.  I've already found more than a few while pulling the D's and E's).

These pictures may look a lot like yesterday's pix, but you'll notice there are finally some books on some shelves. A good thing!

While a few more have made their way in to replace them . . . . 




Once the bookcases have been filled, I can start the fun process of decorating a little.  Yippee Skippy!

 


In the meantime, I thought you might be interested in seeing some of the destruction I'm leaving in my wake.

oy.




What a mess, huh?

Obviously, the little room I'm now referring to as "The Little Library" is not going to hold all the books, so a lot of those I'm moving out of the sunroom will eventually end up right back.  But.  This time they'll be alphabetically organized and from now on I should have a better chance of putting my hands on that one particular book I "need" right this minute.  (I know you know exactly what I mean).  Then I will be oh so happy I did this.

I have to keep reminding myself of that in the meantime.

This is not an easy thing to live with if you're a person who likes things in their place.

But as one of my former bosses at Georgia Tech, Dr. Robert Loewy, used to say "Kaye Alan, you can only eat the elephant one bite at a time."

true.

true.

In the meantime, I think I'll feel better if I'm allowed just one little bitty scream, if you don't mind - - -

I have a walk in closet with shelves meant for shoes? Anyway they are stacked with books. I have them in spreadsheet but I am sure not keeping uo with reading them!.

Go ahead and scream. You should know though that your little library is coming together very well from my viewpoint. Oh and that messy other room? I love it! Beautiful windows.

I've never done my books A,B,C. I group them more by subject and even that is a bit loose.
