Do you crave adventure at the cabin? In the mood for romance?  Or maybe you just need a recipe for your cabin-community potluck. Whatever your taste in reading, books are essential cabin companions.
    If your retreat has been in the family for a generation or more, it probably boasts a well-thumbed collection already. Add the bestseller your spouse packs to read over the weekend, the kayaking guide you pick up at the general store, and, well, you get the idea. Somehow, every visit to the cabin seems to result in more books.
    Which is fine – until the stack starts wobbling. So channel your inner Sherlock Holmes. Sleuth out the recesses of your inner sanctum. Could that unused corner carry part of the storage load? Would built-in shelves make that sloping wall functional and appealing? The clues to solving your own cozy mystery are in this second installment of Cabin Life’s series on storage solutions.
