My plan of attack is to simply unpack the many boxes of books on the floor and place them on shelves. This is so I can see the full collection and so that I can have some sorting room in the center. Right now the books are organized by the author’s last name. There is no subject sorting of any kind.
Digging down through the boxes. In the doorway are the boxes emptied of books.
The space is nearly cleared.
A minor tragedy befell me. As I was placing a tiny book into a bookcase, the shelf gave way. It turns out that not all four of the shelf holders were present. Thankfully, it was a short fall and none of the books were damaged.
