How can you be expected to impress anyone with your awesome library if it's so tall they can't even see it?
Faded spines be damned! Give your books some sun!
This is a good place to keep the books; halfway to anywhere!
Do I spy non-book items on these shelves? Blasphemy! Take your ephemera and objet d'art and scram!
I half expected these little cubbies to be full of hay and little baby chicks. That would be a sweet way to teach kids how to care for animals, make them share a bed with them.
I like the image of my books hanging over my head like a very heavy, very heady halo. Sure it's pretentious. So is this room.
If you are a woman and wear a size 5 shoe or smaller I think you'll be alright here. Sorry everyone else! You don't get to go upstairs.
