I have lots and lots of books at home, but I don't really like the look of ALL my books being on a bookshelf together. I think that sometimes it can look a little too cluttered, so I like to use them in other ways around the house to draw interest and bring elevation to different items.
I think that this book tower is ADORABLE! I can picture it in a childrens room with some chairs flanking it... So cute!
There are many different ways that you can lay books and position them to make it more pleasing to the eye. I like to lay some down with things on top, and then also keep them stacked up like this pic. Love it!
