Library nerds, raise your hands.
There is something magical about visiting the library and getting to take home books for free. Every time I step through the doors, a sort of illusionary osmosis of information occurs and I feel smarter the second I leave. But if and when you cannot take a trip to the library, why not have the library come to you.
In design, books are so versatile. They can add color to a room, they can be stacked to set an object upon to create different levels of interest in a bookcase and they can be placed on your coffee table to elicit conversation.

I just loved scrolling through all of the photos that Google provided me when I searched wall of books.
One day when I design my own home, I plan to have a library with towering walls filled with books books and more books. Would you do the same?
