Best of Book Riot: Coolest Bookshelves EVER

To celebrate the end of the year, we’re running some of our favorite posts from the last six months. We’ll be back with all-new stuff on January 7th.

We already know what our book piles say about us, but what do our bookshelves say about us? Are we any sort of creative with how we display our books? I certainly am an epic fail in this department. I have one cool bookshelf (made of tree branches), but the rest are straight up and down run-of-the-mill bookshelves. To be honest, I didn’t even know cool bookshelf owners existed – not this cool, at least. Let’s all take a peek at some of the coolest bookshelves I’ve found on the Interwebs, and play a game of If This Were Mine.

UPDATE: Check out the second part, featuring a luxury car hung as a bookshelf….

If this were mine…

I’d place books on the appropriate state shelf in which they are set. Because I’m dorky like that.

If this were mine…

I’d read more because my wall would be screaming at me to do so, and I’d feel guilty if I didn’t. In fact, I’d probably put this in the same room as the good ol’ telly so I’d have to make the ultimate choice every night.

*****

If this were mine…

I would feel dizzy.

If these were mine…

I’d no doubt, no doubt, have a few broken toes already. My little piggies are already in danger walking on the normal floor day in and day out – these would be like having Jaws in a swimming pool (but aren’t they fabulous?!).

*****

If this were mine…

I’d have a child. So, maybe I should have a child so I can have a cool tree bookshelf? Is that why all of you clever people procreate?

*****

If this were mine…

You’d see a lot more of {this} in my writing. They’re just prettier than (this) aren’t they? I forget to use {them}, but I wouldn’t if I had this bookshelf, now would I?
