How best to store books?
September 20, 2005 4:27 PM Subscribe
I need to store about two large bookshelves of books. The problem is two-fold: With an impending addition to the family, I have no space in the house. Additionally, I live in San Francisco where I am worried about ruining the books if I simply place them in boxes in the garage. I need help with storage options.

I would really like to keep them somewhat available. I think that the garage is the best place, but I want to make sure that they don't suffer from mildew or mold or anything that will prematurely deteriorate them. I can place a handful of books, those that I treasure most or that I intend to read soon, in the house. The rest of the collection, though represents material that I don't want to give away, but I don't necessarily need at my fingertips.
Any advice on ways to store this stuff would be greatly appreciated.
