The Books In My Home Part 1

During a recent lunch meet up with a Donna we were talking about books in our home. Mainly our to be read piles. I admit I have a ton in my TBR pile. That post will come sometime soon.

But I thought I would share with you pics of Michael’s bookcases. He has alot of books for a 5 year old doesn’t he?

Picture one is his bookcase that is in the living room. The top shelf is all his board books. Second shelf is assorted books from The Backyardigans, Dora, Thomas the train etc. The third shelf is the bigger books and his collection of chirp and nick jr magazines.

Picture two is his book case in his bedroom and that is a mixture of all kinds of books. Some of it is stuff that is a little too old for him right now and some baby books.

Picture three is a shelf in his closet and that is a few books he isn’t ready for yet and a few baby books.

Picture four is a picture of Michael’s night stand with is pile of books. These are his favorite books he likes to read right now. Also as you can see in this picture what I did to Michael’s bedroom over the xmas holiday. Its in the cars theme. Once his room is completely done I will share the pictures with you.

I am wondering if other parents keep their kids baby books? I know Michael doesn’t want to part with them yet.

If you click on the pictures you can see them close up.

    Yes he has a lot of books, BUT you can never have too many – especially when you’re young! I still have three full shelves of my kid’s books – and they’re adults now! Thanks for sharing your pictures

    My to-read stack has gotten out of control (almost 200 books) and my bookshelves are bursting. I feel like my house is being taken over by books, which reminds me of a great children’s book I read once called The Library which was about a woman who had so many books that they took over her house and she couldn’t figure out what to do with them. I think I’m turning into that woman.

    My kids are teens now and I’ve kept most of their hardcover books and any others that are special or favorites. That’s still a lot but we did weed out a couple of boxes full that they didn’t care about and then I could finally part with (only about a year ago!). We passed them on to my nephews and to friends that are teachers. I still have some of my own childhood books too and many of them didn’t have the appeal I thought they would for my kids (some don’t withstand the test of time) but I will always treasure them. And I will have plenty for my grandkids someday too.
