Collections on Display: Books

Everything is going digital, which is great, but at the same time it makes me kind of sad.  In my opinion, there is nothing like feeling the pages of a good book or stylish magazine between your fingers!  Don't get me wrong, I love looking at digital editions of magazines, I keep several collections of inspiration photos on my computer, and I often opt out of printing off papers for school readings to save a few trees & dollars, BUT sometimes I just want the real thing.  Over here, we collect books, among other things, actually we have more books than space to tell you the truth. I love the thought of entire walls of books complete with library ladder and I feel like a collection of books says a lot about who you are, so here are a few inspirational ways to show yourself & your books off...

So don't get rid of your books, hold on to all those smelly, dog eared jems & put them on display!

Do YOU collect books? How do YOU store/display them?
