Cleaning Off My Bookshelf

I have four (3-shelf) bookshelves in my home office that are on the verge of overflowing with books. There is an entire bookshelf just for books that I have not read yet, but need to. Apparently I’m something of a book nut. I hadn’t really noticed it…

Get yourself some Graffiti
