25 Unique Bookshelves That Every Bookworm Needs


Free spins 72890

When I was looking for an apartment, this is a sentence that actually came out of my face: "This place is great, but my books won't fit." Reasonable rent aside, I kept it movin'.

If you're a fellow bibliophile, then you feel my pain. Because I look at screens all day, I never really felt the glowing allure of devices like Kindles. The only downside to that is the fact that I have lots and lots of books and not so much space.

That's why we lovers of literature need to get crafty with our bookshelves. For a little storage inspiration, here are 25 unique bookshelves that you can buy or DIY. If there's a link in the heading, follow it for the tutorial or the purchase page!
