My halls are one of the smaller ones in Bournemouth but the rooms are still quite big and I've kind of learnt that in any room, if you're clever with the space you have, you can fit quite a lot in (thank god for space under the bed).
I, then, included some of the books I really wanted to read. Now, however, I still have those book I love although my room has kind of become infested with books I really want to read/look pretty/classics I love.
I have two shelves which hold my DVD's and documents on one and then LOTS of books on the other.
This shelf consists of mostly books that are in series and need to be read and the classics I have with me at university as well as my photo album. My ornaments all mean something to me (I really like cats, okay...) so it's nice to have them on the lower shelf where I can see them from my bed.
The overflow from this shelf have fled to the shelf above my bed which normally holds chocolate, biscuits and my mugs.
Apart from David Levithan's books at the end, The Fault in Our Stars and Rebecca, these are all to-read's. Yes...I have a lot of books to read currently. You can see a business card for The Crooked Book, which is an independent second-hand bookshop/vintage shop/coffee shop about half an hour from me in Boscombe. IT IS AMAZING. I've only been there once when some friends from home visited, but it's definitely worth a visit if you're in the Bournemouth area and want to do something different from wandering in the shops or by the beach.
I would love to have massive bookcases in my room but alas, there is little room for those. Although next year, I'm hoping to bring one of my bookcases down to the house we're moving into so more books!
