Ever since I saw the beast’s library in Beauty and the Beast as a child, I have been obsessed with the idea of one day having a gorgeous home library. Of course, that's not really possible for me right now, so instead, I live out my fantasy by buying beautiful bookshelves to add some literary fun to my space.
Before the age of Instagram I could only imagine how beautiful other libraries were, or admire the shelves I saw in movies. Now, book-lovers everywhere can share photos of their shelves that will inspire other readers.
Reading a book is a lovely experience, whether you’re reading on a Kindle or nook or listening to an audiobook. But there’s something unique about having a hard copy with a beautiful cover and a decorative spine, flipping through the thick pages, and then placing the book on a carefully chosen spot on your shelf after reading. We all have a different system for organizing our shelves. Personally, I place all my favorites on the top shelf, so they get a special place in my heart and in my library.
No matter your organization style, every reader can appreciate a beautiful shelf. Here are some that you can purchase to organize your lovely collection.
