Today’s Question(s) is …
Are any of your bookcases buckling under the weight of too many books?
My Answer(s) is …
The short answer is no. The long answer is still no AND I have six large bookcases from IKEA that are perfect for what I need. I could also add a couple more in the room designated as my library without any issues. For now, six are more than enough.
They’re IKEA’s HEMNES white stain with light brown bookcases. I adore them. The only thing that would make my library better is purple walls like in my old place.
What about you? Do you have enough shelf space?
Like you, my bookshelves are in decent shape. Unlike you, I really need more bookshelves. The problem is, I have no where to put them.
I totally get that. If I were in any other place, I wouldn’t have room for them. 😀
I love IKEA! We have IKEA storage solutions everywhere so my answer is also no 😂
Have a great week!

IKEA is the best when it comes to storage! They make quality affordable things. 😀 No, I’m not an affiliate, lol.
Your bookshelves are beautiful and look highly organized. Mine are not great. In fact I don’t have a very organized system at all.
My library is the one place I’m VERY organized. Everywhere else, I rely on Corey to do the organizing. 😂
Those bookshelves are beautiful! I did not see any bulging shelves either. 🙂
Thanks, Wendy! 😀 My library is my sanctuary and pride and joy. It’s one of a few places I feel the calmest.
What beautiful bookshelves and library!!
I am glad your shelves are not sagging. 🙂
Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog.
Thanks, Elizabeth! 😀 I’m glad too!
Yours looks what my goals are, it looks like a lovely space to read in. I’m in the middle of converting one of my spare rooms into a home library, so I’ve got a couple of new neat bookcases, and a bunch of old, buckling ones that I’m working on replacing
Thank you, Rhiannon! 😀 That’s awesome that you’re getting your library put together! I hope it turns out like you hope it will and I hope it’ll be a source of much joy!
I don’t have space for bookshelves, which is one of the reasons I generally read e-books.
I totally get that. Corey and I don’t have kids and we’re lucky to have a 3-bedroom townhome. I know it’s more than a lot of people have. I think ebooks are a great space saver. 😀
I love those bookshelves, they look really nice. I would love to have a space in my house for a library.
Thank you, Jamie! 😀 I know I’m blessed/lucky to have the space.
Love the updates to your blog. Guess I haven’t visited in a while. How are things going? I am very impressed by your book shelves. So tidy.
It happens. 😀 Thanks for visiting today and thanks for the compliments on my new look and bookcases.
I’m doing pretty good. I’m just in the process of updating my blog. I’m pretty much done. I just need to create some more images for my posts. 😀
Those look like some really great bookcases! And yeah that you have room to expand if and when you need it! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Thanks, Louisa! 😀 I really love them.
Those shelves are nice, I only have two smallish shelves. I hope to get taller ones eventually, space is part of the reason I donate books.
Thanks, Marie! 😀 I get not having the space. I didn’t have space for a really long time.
I have three bookcases which are jam pack with books. There no signs of the shelves bending. One bookcase I had sine I was a kid and it lasted pass two bookcases I used to have and there no sign of it falling apart.
That’s awesome! They must be good quality and sturdy. And, my husband also has a childhood bookcase that has survived what most modern-day cases could not. They don’t make them like they used to. 😀
Hooray for IKEA bookcases! I feel like they’re a staple for most booklovers. 🙂 I have the Billy bookcases (I think that’s what they’re called) and love them. 🙂
The Billy bookcases are lovely too. My friend has those and they look very nice. She’s traded them out for shelves that hang directly on the wall now. They’re nice looking too. 😀
Love your bookcases! I have three of them, and they are kind of buckling under the weight so I started buying more ebooks instead. Though I still try to get physical copies of my favorite books, even if I’m running out of space haha 🙂
I think that’s a good idea. I buy a lot of ebooks as well. Even though I have space to grow, I now only buy physical books of the ones I really want. 😀
I’ve been purging books (& not buying new ones) since our big move three years ago so nope.
I have a full wall of shelves like you but there’s actually more decorative stuff than books now.
Karen @For What It’s Worth
That’s cool. I thought about purging my physical books and keeping only the signed copies and then moving digitally. Corey talked me out of it, though. He said that since we have the space, I should enjoy having physical books in my library if I want them. 😀
