I am a collector of books. Not only do books serve as an educational/ pleasure purpose but they can also be used to add some texture and life to an interior. I think you can understand a person better by looking at their book collection, like a window if not a mirror into their psyche. A lot of the books I own are merely for reference but I will have them for the rest of my life. Here are some various interpretations on storage for your favorite hardback or paperback. I absolutely love the stacked slender vertical shelving units right below. I would like some of these for my home and/or office. Very sculputural element in itself.
"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers." -Charles W. Eliot
