Hanging shelves is another easy project you keep putting off. A shelf can sit in its package, and the books sit on the floor. All you need is stud finder, level, and a drill and it's done. Then you have the reward of styling the shelves to your heart's content
clutter in your home before it reaches epic proportions. For instance, if you purchase a new pair of sneakers, toss out an old pair; when you buy a new book, choose one you've read to donate to your local library. Similar to caring for a garden, doing a little each day or week will help your home flourish

8. Learn something new. Sometimes it helps to become a student again. Sign up for a continuing education course or an online class. Read a new book, or attend a conference, lecture or weekend workshop. Just make sure it’s something that sounds enticing to you — the point is to get inspired, invigorated

it a TWO shelf bookshelf so the cookbooks could stand up rather than lay down....it looks soooo messy. Two shelves would have accomodated all the books and looked a lot nicer. :o) Just an idea.... :o)

Sink - island and end book shelf concept
Love the idea of storing recipe books this way
Love a [cook]book shelf in the kitchen.
free during down times to grab a book and curl up somewhere.
You don't often see a lot of books in the kitchen. The low bookcase gives this space a library feel.
You can even think of your island storage as an opportunity for adding character and color with books, baking bowls, and favorite accents
11. Cookbooks. Consider a bookshelf close to a working area. You may want to create easy access for frequently used books or recipe folders. A shelf next to a center island, for instance, is practical and good looking.

rid of them all. Going forward, any books he buys will be digital, again with the exception of art books.Now before you begin the frantic, "You'll have to pull my books from my cold, dead hands" comments, just know I'm with you. Books are the only things I still actively acquire, but I get rid of them
recently had an epiphany: He can't handle books. His wife — my sister, Torey — has known this since they married, as she, by default, has had the task of organizing his extensive and ever-growing collection. David would routinely come home with boxes or bags full of books he had picked up for next to nothing

Books by color, just have enough of them...
shelving with metal rods and self adjusting shelf holders
Book Shelves. Can be useful for storage also adds color to a room. Can be easy
Curate into coloursIf you have a spare afternoon to transform a random mishmash of books into a stylish feature, organising them by colour is the way to go. Keep the background of your shelves neutral – brightly coloured paint or patterned wallpaper will dilute the effect.
arranging paperbacks according to the colour of their spines, a simple set of bookshelves takes on a whole new look. The books add strips of colour to the wall and look neat and ordered, too.
