Not only do I think filling up bookshelves are an amazing way to show your decorating skills, but if you are a serious reader like myself, you need a place to keep your library of books! I keep all the books that I have read and they are in every room of my home. The best bookshelf styling is when you add personal mementos and pictures in with the books, telling a story.

Since my apartment is crammed with books, I have vowed not to buy any more books for a while, except coffee table books for stacking my tvs on. I am all about my Kindle!
