Quote of the day: I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. - Anna Quindlen
I'm always interested in the way people store their books. In this case, this is the outside of a bookstore. Buyers are on the honor system and are supposed to submit 50p through the letterbox.

When Ikea was celebrating the birthday of their Billy bookcase, they presented them in unusual settings:

The books in this wall are actually ceramic (but interesting, aren't they)?

This person organized their books by color, making them part of the decorating scheme. Although I would never have thought of doing that, it does look good!

How do you organize your books and are you a bookshelves overflowing type or do you store them neatly? (I tend to organize by subject...most of the time and my shelves are a bit neater than they used to be, but only because I recently cleared them out. Soon I'll be piling books in any nook and cranny available).
