notable books or the BBC’s Big Read.Choose a good book club book. This isn’t always the same as a good read. The books you choose should have something worth discussing — an ambiguous ending, characters who face tough decisions or issues we all face. Most genre fiction, like mysteries and romance novels

great book shelf! Where can I buy it in the U.S. (I've seen it in switzerland)

Book piles, beams, & track lighting.
Make sure books are handy. Because you'll be spending so much more time indoors during this time of year, you'll want plenty of good books to read. Pull down those coffee table books, load up your Kindle and have book swaps with friends to make sure you've got plenty of fresh pages to read. Leave everything

Reading chair in a corner...want to do the stacked books but is it usable
Books line above-the-window shelving and a space-saving vertical shelf. The Barcelona chair, once used as a theater prop, had red wine spilled on it so many times, it needed to be reupholstered. Frances chose a large floral print for something unexpected.
