^Me too! My collection is steadily growing but one can never have enough books in their home, it's my sole interior decor, really.

Amazing, especially the ones in Dublin, Tokyo, Berlin (Humboldt Universität), Pennsylvania (Lehigh), Baltimore and San Diego. Surprised at the amount of stunning US college libraries, us Europeans are quite snobbish when it comes to American culture & history, we always forget/ignore the fact that you have seriously amazing architecture, too :p

I had to draw its interior for a perspective assignment so I got to know the painful metal stairs well

Felt that the library list had too many "cathedral" inspired ones for my tastes.

'There's a lot of things we noticed about this 3,200 square feet in Brazil designed by Triptyque Architecture, including the myriad of high-end audio/video equipment strewn throughout, alongside the supremely expensive and bulbous curves of a Philippe Starck BaObab Desk. But the apartment's defining feature is the expansive, wrap-around bookshelving, holding everything but the kitchen sink...'

This looks like something you'd see on an old episode of Trading Spaces, but still cool nonetheless (src: awesomeinventions.com)

I think next I am going to get some folding bookshelves. I have too many books, and too many houseplants.
