Living Room Sofa Side
We have two extension cords plugged into this living room outlet, before it gets covered up with a tall bookcase. The extension cords have special "flush" or "flat" style plugs, so that the tall bookcase doesn't have to be too far out from the wall. As it happens, the short bookcase in front of the ledge (shown here full of mystery books) has to stick out from the wall about an inch because of the ledge itself, so we can easily run the extension cord along behind it. You can see the blue end table with the Land's End catalog, and you can see that we have more mysteries than will fit on three shelves. In fact, the dining room is about to overflow with the science fiction/fantasy collection, and these mystery books will be relocated into the spare room.
The living room bookcases are now all in place (not counting the two CD towers waiting to be unpacked and assembled), although I haven't finished putting all the shelves in the tall bookcase I just shifted in here. This is also the precise moment that I realized that the tall bookcase was upside down.
This is what that part of the living room looked like on a messy day last year. (Apr-2000)

A year ago, we had a bookcase at the left end of the couch, as you can see in this picture from the archives. (Apr-2000)

Looks pretty busy, we have stacks of boxes of books and an old bookcase about to be decommissioned.
