Book Storage
The 12.2 Quart version of these containers are the perfect size for storing mass market paperback books. I've just gone to buy more of them, because the 35 or so of them that I already have are full, and I still have more of these paperbacks waiting to be stored. Since they hold about 20 to 25 books each (depending on the size of the books), that means I have more than 700 mass market paperback books already stored, and still more in shelves, waiting to make way for larger books. I only have so much shelf space, and these small paperbacks have the lowest priority for being out in the open. It's a good thing I believe there's no such thing as too many books, or I might be disturbed at these numbers.

I have a desperate need to not keep my books behind lids. But considering most of them that are actually on shelves are stacked two deep, I really should consider alternative solutions to "stacking them haphazardly on any level surface".

And you have a userpic!

Storing Books

I wish I had room to put them all out in the open, on shelves. But, even if I don't count those mass market paperbacks, I have more than a thousand other books. There aren't really any more walls open for more book shelves. Someday, I hope to move into a house, but until I do, there's really no getting around the fact that I have to store some books in boxes, or crates, or something. And the clear plastic lids on these boxes make it very easy to look through them quickly for the book I want.

I've seen people keeping paperbacks in shelves two deep, as you describe. I've always thought that would make it hard to find some books. Do you find that when you're searching for a book that happens to be in back that it's difficult to find it?

And yes, I have a userpic. 8-) I've had a cheap digital camera for a while, now, but I had put off exploring the logistics of pulling images from the camera and manipulating them under Linux. I really don't use MS Windows at all, at home. Buying Windows feels too much like supporting organized crime, to me. So, it's taken a while for me to establish a userpic.
