Bookshelf Porn

New bookcase

Mine aren't nearly so interesting

If you’re like me and can just stand staring at bookcases full of books and feel happy, you will love the Bookshelf Porn website, by Anthony Dever of the Everything on the Internet is True site.

I could spend hours and hours on that site, I can tell. Already I have favourites — like the loft with very high ceilings, where the bookshelves rise up one wall for the entire height. I honestly would not mind climbing a ladder to get books. I mean — Books!

Bookcases that have twelve shelves – different coloured books arranged on shelves so they form a larger image – bookcases made of unusual materials or in unusual configurations (like this Foldaway Bookshop arrangement or this lopsided bookcase) — you will be enthralled!

And I’ve already found, just in the last few minutes, a whole host of other blogs with fascinating photos and other things on them. (It’s like Bilbo telling Gandalf that you never know where the road outside your door will lead you.)

(I am especially fond of this one that leads to the Yay! Everyday a different site: Read More Books Thank Blogs.)

Bow Down And Worship Me

Forget the books and adore ME

      Hi Phyls,
      I can’t get out of 9gag.com now! thanks for pointing to it 🙂
      About the rationalization, I think one blogpost is just one chapter in a book, so perhaps we ‘re about even on the read more books than blogs?

      I do like seeing shelves and stacks of books. I’d never really thought about it. It’s one of the first things I like about going to a second hand bookstore, all those tall shelves of books. Like treasures or goodies waiting to be found.
