"When you walk into my home, you are instantly greeted by roughly 1,500 of my closest friends - my books! I collect anything I can get my hands on...from history and politics to adventure, sci-fi, romance, biographies, and more! There is nothing I love more than discovering a new author and living in the world they open up for me. As you can see from this set of shelves in my living room, I can barely contain my collection anymore!"

"I love books and books are my life. I work for a book manufacturer and cant imagine a world without them. This is a collection of past projects, personal favorites and family treasures."

"These shelves represent how marriage brings two lives and two people with very different interests together harmoniously. They showcase my husband’s love of fantasy books alongside my passion for children’s literature. Other interests are on display here as well: his love of music, Deloreans, and Redskins football, and my interest in nature, the classics, and a weakness for Ikea’s organizational tools.

I usually know where each book is, but sometimes I discover a book I forgot I had in a search for another.

"Since I was a child, I have loved to read and have collected so many books since then. At 18, I still love to read and even blog about the books that I read through book reviews. My shelves are totally overflowing with books, that I have to shove them anywhere I can find space... hence the multiple pictures of different collections of books. I wish I had the space to have a humongous bookshelf, but to me they just look more homey the way I have them now with all my knick knacks…

"I love books, especially antique cookbooks. This is my corner to curl up and explore the menus and dining etiquette of yesteryear."

"I've had a long love affair with books for many many years now.Wherever I'am I just cant stop not looking at a yard sale,a libray,or a bookstore for MORE books.I collect certain authors,and buy only 1st editions of that book.There are books you save to take on vacation because you know nothings better at the beach with the sun and a good book,and some you need a quite place to concentrate on.Then theres that book that keeps you up till 3 in the morning but dont care..."

"Here is one of the four bookshelves in my office. I enjoy the ocean and beaches so I have a lot of nautical items, like the Harbour Lights lighthouses on top of the shelf, adorning my office."
