Here are two from design*sponge.
I'm a sucker for color coordination.

One is a before and after. And I love the long low shelf.

I used to occasionally get rid of the books that I had finished reading unless I really loved them; but this thread has inspired me to keep ALL of my books and have many, many, many, shelves and stacks of them.

This thread has really inspired me to decorate my house with books. I now have them scattered everywhere- a few on my dresser, some on my coffee table, some on the hallway entryway table, cookbooks on top of my kitchen cabinets... It makes the house feel more personal.

Does anyone put covers on their books? I have some books with unattractive covers for displaying purposes, and I thought I might cover them with some pretty paper I have.

^ I think book covers look good; I am not remotely disciplined enough to do that

I've been clearing out books that are no longer relevant lately ...

I have to constantly "weed" my library. Usually I'll keep all non-fiction books indefinately but will donate about half of the fiction I read each year. Our local "friends of the library" love me.

^ I think I'll give mine to the library too then I wonder if they'd forgive my latest fine in exchange for a generous donation

One thing I did was weed out fiction (well, non-fiction too) that I felt had a negative message. Also some college textbooks (it's been a long time ). Out with the books I've been given that I never liked ... out with depressing books ... out with the boring ...
