I‘m a BIG collector of books. Furthermore I adore to learn, but I adore the aesthetic of books on the shelf. Many people see it too disorganized looking, especially people that adore design minimalism, but personally, I believe a packed shelf filled with well-worn hardcovers and paperbacks gives a home a loved and lived-in feel. There was a period when my apartment was crammed with Ikea bookshelves, which for any college student, offer an excellent solution to storage needs of kinds.
But as my tastes matured, I found myself wanting to display my 20 many years of book collecting in a manner that fit my house perfectly, so I spent months searching online, in stores and also at estate sales to locate the ideal bookcase.

That search was the inspiration for that post ! I wanted to scope out a bunch of valuable book storage solutions that covered all of the bases when it comes to space, size and quantity of books.
