I like the idea of shelves on the ends for cookbooks but, I'd need a wall for mine.

I love these ideas. I have a couple more:
my husband built a peninsula at our old house, and I asked for a platter sized plate rack on my uppers( which were open on both sides, and the lower had a book case, in which the bottom shelf had clearance for the cat's dishes.

I have this for cookbooks. Of course I also have a shelf in my pantry too. Too many cookbooks but I do use them.
