Just got to unpacking the books and realize I NEED more bookcases for my beloved books. Anyone know a good place to buy wood bookcases? And how many of you use bookcase?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

I have several, most of which are old and the shelves are buckled by the weight of the books on them. You can find, if you are on a budget, all sorts that you can put together yourself; better would be to build them yourself with thicker shelves and more support.

The college make-shift of planks and cinder blocks works as well as anything more expensive, and if you paint the blocks and varnish the good wood (you can have the lumber yard cut the planks for you), you have something portable, expandable, and enduring.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I live by the "It's where you need it" rule. various Tech manuals can be found on my desk (under piles of bills, receipts, and pay stubs, it's tax time), books I've read are stacked in a rubbermaid tote to be sent to Mom's, Auto and farm equipment manuals are found in the garage or in the office (it's cold out there), new books, catalogs, and magazines are all stacked on the coffee table. So I don't use a bookshelf anymore (I actually threw out 4 when I last moved)

If you live anywhere near a charity Thrift Store I would recommend checking them out. I have Salvation Army, Good Will, and a few local charity thrift stores near me and I visit them frequently. Obviously, the stock is unpredictable and changes without notice. Some shops have specialties, like furniture, and are worth getting to know.

Also, you might check Freecycle, but again, it's a matter of being in the right place at the right time.

I'm a big fan of solid wood -- not so impressed with particle board (it always seems to sag, eventually).

I like wall-hanging shelves; they're neater. But I've just built a standing one for my mother's upstairs hallway - solid pine, and under 40€ for a bookshelf four metres long.

I always think houses without books look sad and soul-less. Especially the ones in the glossy magazines that have thousands of useless pillows and no books!
