It seems like my kids books can be found in every nook and cranny throughout my house.  And we have a lot of books!  Just imagine if you will my sister is a 3rd Grade teacher who gets free books from Scholastic all the time and my wife has a shopping problem.  Yes, this equals lots of books in the house to organize.  In my search for new ways to help organize all these books here are some great ideas I found that helped us get our books in order and hopefully will help you too.
