Home is where your books are

July 15, 2013 by kmwelden

Two very exciting things happened to me this week.

ONE: All eleven boxes of books I shipped from Myrtle to Colorado arrived via Media Mail. Thanks to my mom for spending a ton of money to ship those bad boys, but like I tried to tell her: “There is no way I can begin to live a functional and productive life in Denver without my books. All of them. In a place where I can see them at all times.”

If you don’t have a love affair with books, you might not understand this, but God, it’s true for me: home is where your books are.

Which brings me to my NEXT piece of exciting news (yes, I expect you all to be just as excited about this as I am)…… I bought the dream bookshelf I’ve ALWAYS wanted. I’ve spent my whole life without enough space for all of my treasures, and now I have one, and I cannot stop staring.

Hi there, beautiful. Ikea Hemnes Shelving Unit, you are mine forever.

Also exciting: there are sections!

Compilations and anthologies! "Wow, how boring can you be, Kaitlyn?" you might ask, but y'all i can't even STAND it.

Barnes and Noble classics. In the interest of full disclosure: have read only one of these.  May or may not have been Alice in Wonderland.

And the best girls I know, held up by the Wine Bible and the Kardashians, of course.

TL;DR– I love my bookshelf. Bye.
