Where to put those books?
Bookshelves, bookcases, books about books :)
Tip-Turned Bookshelf: Anthropologie
"The problem in our country isn't with books being banned, but with people no longer reading. You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them." Ray Bradbury food for thought, fahrenheit 451, reading quotes, book clubs, reading books, education, people, ray bradburi, ray bradbury
Exactly. I just built a bookshelf with my dad that's absolutely gigantic--it's taller than I am by, like, a foot and a half and I love it and all my books ACTUALLY FIT (or at least I think they do...there's still a few scattered around the house :3. Juli, I'd send you a pic, but my phone died.) EDIT: Note to self, never underestimate a bookworm. Over twelve hundred pins and it's only been three weeks. Wow.

Turn a closet into a library and add a French door. BRILLIANT!!
Comfortable reading nook. I like the little wall lights @ very top, helping illuminate the books- clever!
Each colored shelf for different reading levels (instead of stickers and the books randomly mixed together)
DIY built in bookcases using kitchen cabinets
Shelf Details - old bookshelf or dresser (better if it's missing drawers because then it's cheaper!) and recycle/upcycle it! Sand it down, clean it up and paint the whole thing your favorite color or an accent color that suits the room it'll live in. Before you put the shelves in put fabric on the back "wall"! OR...You could use wallpaper, or stencil your own design! FUN stuff!! decor, bookcases, idea, old dressers, furniture redo, kid rooms, scrapbook paper, diy, girl rooms
Refinished bookcase w/ fabric on the back. Pretty...but would be a wasted effort for me because my shelves are always so full I can't *see* the back :)
cheapest, easiest DIY bookshelf ever --> concrete blocks & wood... no hammers, cutting or anything!
Paint stirrers and stickers for separating books. Could also sort by genre, reading level, or theme for Read Alouds.
