I am a book collector, love books, have lots. That said, I would find having them all over a little confining, just my personal feeling. Also, having all those books in areas of high traffic would likely create a lot of work in keeping them dusted, not a trivial issue in terms of dust mites, allergies, etc. I agree that adjustable shelves are more efficient and flexible but less clean lines in a modern interior. Large glass doors might soften the impact of adjustable shelving, reduce the dust problem, and still present a more modern surface design, not to mention softening the impact of so many books in general. The non-book areas inside and out create much relief and balance. Overall, I could be very happy here.

BTW, don't all the puck lights create a lot of glare when looked at from below?
