09:04 pm: It finally happened...
Yes, it took half a year, but I finally filled up my bookshelf. This left me with two choices: 1) throw away more of the books left by my predecessors, which have already been weeded down mainly to Japanese language learning books, or 2) buy a new bookshelf. If I were really cramped for space, I would probably resort to tossing the books I don't use, but as it is I still have room for more shelving. Thus, I tidied up the recyclables that have been piling up in my craft room to clear a spot for a new bookshelf.

I went to the store and picked the most suitable bookshelf they had on display...but it turned out they didn't have any more left in stock. <grumble> So I didn't get it today, I had to order it. But they'll deliver it whenever they get it in. (I could probably have gone to a different store to find one, but that would have meant another trip out in the cold, and I'm wimpy that way.)

Oh, the pain! The agony! I can't even bear thinking about it.

As long as the sugar bowl doesn't have a book hidden in it, there's still room for more.

My kitchen...now there's a place I've run out of room. I really love my appliances, but where to put them...

Luckily, Japanese books are quite compact. So I get a high book-to-shelf ratio.

If there are any good books about Go in English that you have access to, let me know. Always hungry for more.

That's why they're in the sugar bowl.

Currently, I have stuff piled up on the floor. Which, you know, I can live with. It's just a bit unsightly when the Jehovah's Witness folks knock on the door. (They're about the only visitors I ever get.) Shelves would be a lot more organized.
