Inventory and Function of My Billy Bookcase

I bought my Billy a couple of years ago to my old apartment and at that time found the wooden color at "Fynd hörnan" (were you can find damaged products and show pieces).

About a year ago I got tired of the color and wanted a white one. I considered buying a new one, but in the end decided to paint mine white and place it in another part of my apartment to give an impression that I had a small living room.

It was a bit messy for a while, but I managed to put the books back into the bookcase once the paint had dried.

Today the top of the bookshelf works as a table for the books I read in bed and were I keep my alarm clock, and there is a feeling that I have two rooms (kind of) instead of one, since the Billy functions as a little wall.

The lower parts are hidden an contain "secret books" ;-) The books on the floor and on top (in the middle and behind the other books) are books that do not fit in the case, maybe I need another Billy...?

Which titles/books my Billy contains follows:
