19 Most Creative Bookshelves You’ve Ever Seen


I don’t care how popular e-books and kindles are, I will always prefer to read a real book. There’s just something about the smell of a real book, the feeling the cover photo evokes, as well as the texture of each page, which is always just slightly different. This book-lover prefers the real thing, and as a result I have more than one bookshelf in my home.

If you love books as much as I do, get ready to want every single bookshelf on this list. These are the most unique and creative bookshelves, and while some are more practical than others each will leave you wondering—why haven’t I thought of this before?!
