I think we need more bookshelves...

Everywhere I look I am overwhelmed with piles of books. To the point that I am paralyzed from doing anything about them.
This is our home right now:
(make that, this is our first floor, as I haven't even attempted to tackle the books upstairs)

This is or piano.  Or, Sean's piles of books. With room for a dictionary down below. 

But wait, there's more... below the dictionary another pile of books!

And this was the pile of already-read books removed from the piano last week. 

Which was instantly replaced by another series graciously gifted to Sean by a good friend who noticed our piles of books last weekend and decided we needed more.  (picture of Sis with her great grandmother just a bonus). 

Even the baby has her stash. 

Make that stash-es. 

This is our laundry room.  What?

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see? I see Constitutional Law looking at me....

Poor Jamesie doesn't even get any surface space for his books.  

This is Sean's on-going reading pile.  3 bookmarks in 3 different novels.  Not to be confused with the piano pile, which is on-going series, but books he has not yet started from each series. 

This is why I am drowning in a sea of book-piles:  

The other day I said, Sean, you are reading so much!  To which he answered, "Mom!  That's because I am a lover of books!"

What a sweetie! Can you get rid of some of your old books, or just keep getting more shelves like we do? You could probably put more bookcases in your dining room, living room, family room, and the boys' room, too!
