I have lots of books at home. I just put it inside the box. When I feel like reading, I just look one book that I will read inside the box. If only I have a shelf, I do not need to dig in the box every time I am looking for a certain books or when the nieces and nephews need one for reference. I want to have a shelf that is made of cherry veneer wood. My brother knows how to make a shelf. I will ask him if he could make one for me. When he will say yes, I will soon buy the materials needed.
