the beauty of books

spent much of the day at barnes & noble scouring travel guides for next semester (when i will be studying in france) and leafing through interior design books. love that books can also be employed as a powerful decor statement once they have been read:
colorful spines add to an already colorful sitting room.
interesting idea to display books with their covers showing instead of their spines.
lots of books add life to lots of white.
we all know jamie of i suwannee shares this love of bookcases!
a personal favorite.
spotted: books as side tables.
floor-to-ceiling bookcases for the true collector.
