I have a shelf where I store my books and gladly enough there are no termites to eat them up. If you want your books to be free from these radicals then I suggest you rearrange them from time to time. If they are untouched for a certain period of time bugs start to settle in. So get yourself some exercise at least once a month and revisit your books or at least just dust them off.

hi pucca-chan! i only have a few books and most of them are on my closet and some are on a bookshelf. the ones on my closet are perfectly safe from termites, ants and dusts (i think so). the ones on the bookshelf collect dusts and i only get to clean it when i'm searching for a book there. ^__^;; i don't buy books too often. i only buy those that i want to collect and those that aren't expensive.

Most of my books are now in my parent's house. Every time I move into another place I usually pack those that I only need. These are those unread books, useful references, borrowed novels, manuals, and dictionaries. Those that I read everyday, I keep them near my bed so I could grab them whenever I can.

Since I was litle, I have always been fond of collecting and reading books. I always see to it that my books are well taken care of. That's why I always ask my parents to buy me shelves for my books. Now I think, I already have 3 shelves of them.

I don't keep my books. If I buy a buy, I usually give it to my mom who passes it on.

I am a home school mom and we have plenty of books. We have a small section added on to our garage that we have a school room in that has a lot of shelves for books. However, it seems as though they are beginnning to grow in the house. I now have a closet that has a large bookcase in it that has several shelves that I have books on and we have a new shelf in both of the girls' rooms that contains books too. Plus, I have a small bench that we keep our library books on so that we know where they are at all times.
