Saw this on read.dance.bliss and now my life will NEVER BE COMPLETE until I get it.

Update: Rats. Yes, Precie, this is even better.

*drools*

Have you checked out Kimbooktu? Great book lover paraphernalia.

Charles Gramlich said...

That IS kinda cool.

Charles Gramlich said...

Yeah, that Stair bookcase Precie linked to is even better.

I just want you to know that posting that was a very mean thing to do. Because now I'm drooling over it, too. And my day was going so well otherwise...

Someday I will have a library. Not a room with bookshelves, but a library. Alas, it will be a good long while.

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG !!!

okay see, while i think its VERY COOL LOOKING, its not as functional for me, bc, well, i stack my books in multiple layers, and the diagonal seems like it would be difficult to do this.

but you know what i REALLY want? a library. a la beauty and the beast. when she walked into that room in that movie, i was like OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WANT ONE JUST LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!

alas. i have two bookshelves that are about to break.

what i'd REALLY like is if i had 26 bookshelves so i could have one for each letter of the alphabet and watch with glee as i filled each one up with successive purchases.

my future husband is going to hate me bc our child will have no room to sleep in bc i have too many books. that, or he'll drown in paperbacks.

sigh. no seriously, i think about it all the time. how am i going to fit all my books in a tiny nyc apt?

angelle said...

also. the book staircase gives me heebie jeebies. i think it's a little too claustraphobic. i like my books on neat rows in big spacious areas where i can stare at all of them lined up beautifully and perfectly all at once.

yeah. i know how that sounds.

You know I loved the staircase bookcase when I saw it before, but this wall bookcase is so cool and so beautiful. I love it. Must have it!!!

Beautiful!

And Amazon.com is indeed evil. I got a box today...4 books=$40.

Heaven!

pacatrue said...

I could make do with either.

ChristineEldin said...

Beautiful!! Oh, you so need to expense this to Robert!
:-)

Maprilynne said...

Oh my gosh! Those are both totally gorgeous! I do have to vote for the diamond one because it isn't hidden away in the closet. With that one everyone can see your books . . . and what good is a beautiful bookshelf if not to show off all your beautiful books?;)

We had shelves like that to hold boxes of film at the camera store where I worked. They are so kewl.

McKoala said...

Loving the wall one. Send to me.

ReadDanceBliss said...

Yeah, I saw the staircase one but I don't like it as much as the wall one - seems like you can't stand back and eye the stacks as much as you'd like on the steps... Anyway, has anyone found where that picture actually came from? The blog from which I originally got it didn't say anything useful in terms of a source or any hints for where one might actually procure such a wall o' books.
