I think she means that she has them on her Kindle, and also has a physical copy. I think she's donating the duplicate physical books to the library.

Believe it or not, these bookcases have 'stackability'. You can stack one on top of another. There are holes on the tops of the bookcases that another pieces fits into...then you can mount one one top of another using that 'connector'.

I didn't because I'm so short...and don't like to climb...but also for safety. We'd have to 'secure' the bookcase to the wall.

But thanks for the info, Jan! I didn't see 'taller' ones at our Fred Meyer. I also purchased 2 bookcases that weren't as wide, but the same height. Fred Meyer was having a sale: buy two-get one free! (mix or match) Well I'm a sucker for a sale. Our Fred Meyer also had "corner units" too. Same height. Very useful for unusual places!

She means that since she's downloaded the book's contents to her Kindle...there is no longer any reason for her to keep a hard copy on hand.

Kinda like having a DVD movie downloaded to your computer...you may think about getting rid of the actual DVD to save space.

Edited to add:
And, now I see that LisaR gave the absolute right answer! Sorry for duplicating what you already said so well, Lisa! Didn't mean to overtalk on your answer! You were right on!

Ohhhh okay, that makes sense. I couldn't figure out how you'd get the copy from kindle into book form. I have Kindle (and a book called Casting Off by Nicole R. Dickson) on my iPod Touch. Love having it there!

Oh that's good to know, Dollyce. I didn't realize they could be stacked. I'm only 5.3" so I know about being short, too. My extra 3" don't do me any good either. My shelves are from Ikea..the whole room is Ikea including my computer desk actually.

I love Ikea stuff, I hate assembling Ikea stuff!

These Fred Meyer bookshelves are all assembled, and hinged, so that (to put away) the shelves themselves can be raised in the vertical position, the sides fold forward to the center, and the entire thing can be laid flat under your bed!

Jan and Dollyce both - great jobs!!! Doesn't it feel awesome to have it organized like that and know that if you're looking for something specific you can put your hands right on it? I need something like that. Will have to look into those shelves.

I feel 1,000 lbs lighter! If you could have seen the disarray in there BEFORE this!

Organizing books, magazines and binders is really a challenge. When I joined Rav and finally GOT WITH IT...it was so nice to get my yarns organized. Photos, data, etc!

I look forward to the day when my art studio is ALL KNITTING: yarn, books, mags and binders and all! At this time, half of my yarns are in a Home Depot yarn closet, and half are in a big wicker trunk. I'd love to bring it all together into one dedicated KNITTING SHOP-ROOM!

There must be something in the air!

Spent all of last weekend sorting stuff. Not knitting stuff, but other detritus. Eventually freed up an under bed box for my yarn, so now its in colour order

And got a folder for my patterns. Thought 20 pockets would last ages, didn't realise I had that many, its nearly full !!!

What I love more than knitting (is that possible?), and talking about knitting is ORGANISING

Organizing What foreign country is that strange word from? If my house were organized I think the walls would fall in from shock.
