so many books, so little shelf space

OK, I have 7 bookcases with 8 shelves each and yet I am out of shelf space. I've gotten a bunch of free books to review lately which I love, but my goodness they start to pile up. In fact, at the moment, there are lots of piles of books all over my living room. I need another bookcase, but I'm not sure where to put one as I am completely out of space. I also need to purge books from the shelves but am terrified to begin such a project because it will lead to house chaos and I can't face that right now.

I don't know though- I really am beginning to think the books are reproducing somehow when I'm not looking...

They're like RABBITS! Wow, 7 bookcases!!! I have 2, and was just thinking "you know, I bet i could weed out some of these..." I put myself on a book diet (buying and having them, not reading them). But, it's harder when they're being sent to you for review!!!

I only have four and ONLY one of them is double-stacked. I try and weed every couple of months as I am morally opposed to storing books I a. didn't like or b. will never read again not even for reference. And especially c. because my favorite local bookstore will give me trade for them which I can use for new books! It's not a bad system as long as I keep at it...

but then, sometimes you just need to buy another bookshelf.
