Lately, I have seen a lot of creative, funny, lovely, nice, beautiful, organized, ... bookshelves on the internet. Walls that only carry a couple of books arranged in an intricate manner. Designers that go crazy with ten or twenty books, building an idea upon them.
As much as I like to look at these shelves, I don't think they are for me. You can only have creative bookshelves if you don't have many books. If, like in my case, your house is overflowing with books already and you really don't know where to put your latest acquisitions, all you can dream of is a house with wall to wall, floor to ceiling shelves in every room. A house full of shelves. That would be my dream.
