The family and I were watching a movie on Sunday evening when a thunderous BANG interrupted us and set the corgis to ferocious barking. At first we thought it came from outside, but then Himself suggested upstairs. So up the stairs everyone flew.
Here's what greeted us, only it was a lot messier:
The top two overburdened shelves of my bedroom bookshelf collapsed under the weight of my books. The resulting pile was staggering. I stacked them up so I could get to my side of the bed. In case you're wondering, the books lined up to the left of the bookshelf are always there. I don't have room anywhere else.
My other bookshelves are just as bad. And there's no budget for new bookshelves just now.
If you are like me and books adorn every room in your house, do yourself a favor and check the shelves' stability!
