I Heart Bookshelves

… As do most English majors, book club members, used bookstore aficionados, and all-around cool people.  Electronic book readers terrify me.  I love the smell of books, the old bindings, the dog-eared page corners.  Which leads me to my point (which sometimes takes a while) – there is a hidden gem on the internet – a website called:  Bookshelf Porn.  Don’t let the name fool you, it’s totally PC and wonderful.  Described as:  Porn for book lovers. A photo blog collection of all the best bookshelf photos from around the world for people who *heart* bookshelves.  You can now waste the better part of your day staring at incredible shelves of books; you’re welcome.

  1. these are fab! I wish I had space for a giant book shelf!

    • Oh my gosh, me too! Apartments don’t exactly work for giant library shelving.

  2. I came across this a while back and all I could think (as a person with a pretty impressive book collection of my own) is how do these people have enough books to fill book cases this large??

    e readers are an abomination!
    i love my books, my bookshelves, and my library card!

  4. j’adore. thx for the link. I heart books as objects too. they’re full of symbols and their presence in a room really brings sth special.
