The old bookcase was in bad shape, so I decided a bookshelf would be a smarter idea. Four bookshelves to be exact, 8' long too. And a fifth 4' one for good measure. I like overkill a lot.

For the first time in our marriage, we have space for all our books... with some room left over. I even took out all my academic school books I kept that have been in storage for 5 plus years. Everything [miraculously] fits. It’s crazy.

The whole thing cost like $260, which is a lot for me. But I’ve been wanting to build this for months. And when my parents visited for the week, I had to pull the trigger. I’m really happy on how it turned out.

Religious books
Kids books and games, manga that my brother gave me, anything else that doesn’t fit a neat category.
Programming and game theory books.
The corner

It wasn’t my intention, but I have a reading corner now. Naturally with a tv hooked up to various game systems. :)
