"Too few walls" isn't accurate right now but is almost guaranteed to be in another couple of months.

Interesting... with 17 participants, the distribution of answers looks roughly normal. Given that the choices are exponential, that means that the distribution of bookcases amongst my friends is roughly log-normal.

I don't know if that means anything.

Too little space

Alas, most of my books are in boxes in the garage. Also, most of my bookshelves.

I am in the process of building paperback bookshelves into a wall in my bedroom so that I have a place to unpack books into. Part of the plan is to ruthlessly weed out books until all of the paperbacks that I keep fit into the built-in shelf.

I have no idea how I'm going to deal with the larger books.
