Bookcase porn...

Yes I did. I did put 'porn' in the heading of my post. Because....book junkies have one great thing in common... There is never enough room in the bookcases for all the books we have/want. That should really be one word, methinks. Havewant. Wanthave. Don't know which way around is better, but in book terms, I do believe they're almost one and the same.

So, anyway, the reason for the dodgy title is that, while surfing the net - as you do - looking for a particular image, I found all sorts of mad things that weren't precisely what I was hunting. However, they were excellent fodder to feed the craving for the perfect bookcase set up - whatever that may be.

Enjoy:
Are they not just awesome??? I particularly love the first one. A bookcase door hiding a secret place with MORE bookcases.... Excellent!

If all else fails, it appear there may be a solution. This, from The Librarian's Facebook post. It appears that there are many means of building a bookcase, and this one comes complete with a librarian...
Is there anything that Lego doesn't do any more?

  1. Love the lego image. I have fantasies of one day having completely floor to ceiling bookcases with a sliding ladder in order to reach the top shelves, always good to dream. Bibliophiles always appreciate good shelves, so yep bookcase porn seems very apt.

    1. The Lego cracked me up.

      I did have, for a very brief time, a room with two walls of floor to ceiling bookcases. I have a vintage oregon ladder that I stripped and waxed - it doesn't slide, it's a regular ladder. But it does the job. And will do so again when there are big bookcases again...

  3. I remember a second hand bookshop in Southampton. It was on three floors and had bookshelves up both sets of stairs. Brilliant. I was 8 at the time and couln't believe the huge number of books crammed into such a confined space.
    Love the bookcase door!

    1. Thanks for your feedback Georgina - that bookshop sounds awesome. There'll be another bookcase post soon - I have a growing collection of images I've been saving.
