As much as I love bookshelves, I'm more possessive about my books, having them displayed on a wall only for people to come and ask me for it, gives me goosebumps. Although my most prized possessions are with me in the 'inside' bookshelf.
Every time Arun Jaitley comes on TV, I ogle at the wall to wall bookshelf in the back (Plus his intelligent talk is such a huge incentive). Oh what a glorious sight it is! There is something called 'Bookshelf Porn' (bookshelfporn.com) you can look it up and it's the best damn thing you'll lay your eyes on. No, it is completely safe. Just beautiful bookshelf after bookshelf.
When I have a house of my own, I can't wait to have a stunning bookshelf. Wall to wall. Like in the movies. May be even a secret passage way that leads to a super secret library. I have goosebumps thinking about it.
I'm not an orgainsed person. I'm fairly well kept. But my bookshelf? Oh! It's impeccable. Each book laid out. No dog ears. No folded pages. No stacking up. Old books go in bags. Each book has a bookmark. My bookshelf or cupboard should I say is a pretty picture of a few hundred books all waiting to be summoned by me! (Oh! I treat them like my royal subjects)
