I've just posted my thoughts on the way a library of my own scores 100% over kindles and the local library in another thread; "Not my beloved books..." so I'll stick to books in the bedroom.

Firstly, wouldn't I love a bedroom the size of these, then I could think about housing more books in it? As it is, I have the perfect bedroom bookcase - free! It's a glass coffee table with a shelf underneath, left behind in our local car boot sale by someone who couldn't sell it. I thought it was a temporary solution until I got it home and discovered it is exactly the right size. It provides two shelves for big non-fiction (my favourite kind of book, and difficult to house) underneath a wall where I can display paintings. It works so well in the space it's here to stay. :-)

And mine too, to anyone like Dave who tries to live without books... He didn't even mention a kindle...

I love the last photo best, but almost all are nice. I don't like my books in piles, because I always seem to want the one at the bottom! ;-) Even the first photo would be nice if the books didn't match, but - don't you remember those Readers Digest novels in mock leather covers? They might not be staged...
