Whew! I just put 51 new books on the low shelves next to the reading nook. I have lots of books. One way I keep track of them is to keep an ongoing list of all the titles, so in case I want to know if I have something, I can do a word search for it. I have 589 on the list right now on Christmas 2009. Actually, this number does not include the maybe 100 books of my own collection from before I began my list. They get moved around quite a bit. When books first arrive, I log them in and then I put them on the lower shelves by the main reading nook. I have several areas for sitting and reading, all next to different bookshelves. After each has been read, they move on to a more permanent location, typically by topic or author. Now if I could just keep track of where each title actually is, I’d be set.
