Where Do You Keep Your Books?

I love displaying books in a spot where everyone can peruse them. Right now, they're on shelves in the study, but I also love keeping them in the living room. Where are the majority of your books kept?

I keep my favorite books here and there in staples in the living room, sometimes with candles to support them or my big rose quartz rock on top. I wish to have my own library one day. My mom worked as a librarian her whole life, I grew up with books.

This is timely. I'm considering buying some book towers to store my books. I also plan on putting some accessories in the towers, too, for storage and to give the towers an interesting look.

Most of mine are housed in my office where there are three large bookcases stuffed with books. I also have a small case in my entryway and another big case in my upstairs guest room. And I have several bookcases in my basement. I studied literature in graduate school and am a literary researcher, so I have tons and tons of books. I'm considering purchasing the West Elm Parson's bookcase or having a carpenter come in and build floor to ceiling bookcases in my office.

Other, our 2 main book cases are in the hallway upstairs. We have one book case in our bedroom and we have some books displayed on our coffee tables in the sitting room and the family room.

We have a bookshelf in our living room. I like for guests and friends to see our books - that way they can barrow one they see interesting or just learn more about our likes from our selection. Plus, they are always out and handy for reference.

Yeah, we don't have a library, so the books are in every room. I have tons in my bedroom shelves, some in the office shelves, in the garage, and in the living room shelves. But I keep my favorites in the bedroom.

n our old house, we had a great study, for which I designed the floor-to-ceiling shelves and had a local artisan carpenter build to my design. They were lovely. And then we moved. Now our books are in a few places: a few on the living room shelves, some in the loft (where the kids' computer and xBox is), my art and craft books in my studio, and most in the guest room/study.
