Book piles

I went on an Ikea binge today and bought lots and lots of new bookshelf space. Thanks to the (relatively) new Ikea location in East Palo Alto, I’ve got next day delivery so I’m working on clearing off all of my books and getting rid of my old janky bookshelves. It seems like a lot of effort, perhaps, but I really do love books and I want to make sure they have a place to live and be organized as my collection grows, even if they’re mostly cheap, but much-loved paperbacks.

So, in any case, I’ve got book piles lying around my apartment now and sometimes I forget the weird collection I’ve put together over the years. Take a look (click for the whole picture):
