I love books, they are fun to read and beautiful, but often become cumbersome to their owners. Book lovers tend to acquire them without even noticing and before you know it they are everywhere! I highly suggest that you find the space you wish to dedicate to books and set limits. Perhaps a certain bookshelf. Once that unit is full, challenge yourself to purge less meaningful books, those you didn't care for, those you plan on never reading again, those you borrowed, etc. Make space for your new books to fit into your current space rather than adding more space to fill!
