What's On My Bookshelf

I thought I'd give ya'll a peek at my bookshelf since I just organized it and its all pretty. I just went through and got rid of several books that we have already read and probably won't read again so now that just gives me room for more books. I have this viscous cycle of getting rid of books and buying more, and over and over it goes. My too read list seems to be longer than my have read list.

I like how I have them organized at the moment though I know when the kids get a hold of it, it won't stay this way for long.
