Organizing a lot of books in a limited space.

Organizing small spaces is always a challenge but I am excited about these kinds of challenges. I've lived in a vintage Shasta Compact when traveled up and down the east Coast of the United States. The inside dimensions were 10 feet long by 7 feet wide and the ceiling was 7 feet if I remember correctly. I was able to fit a shower, a potty, a 4 gallon water heater, a 40 gallon fresh water tank, a sink, a stove/oven, a fridge, and 2 beds that could sleep 2 people each (snug). That's impressive if you ask me. So using some of my experience from that, I addressed this small bookshelf with a lot of books. Thinking outside the box I arranged and rearranged the rooms until they not only fit but also looked pleasing to the eye.

I find stacking some books horizontal and some vertical breaks it up uniquely and helps utilize space more efficiently. In my opinion, it makes it more interesting to look at too.
