For the avid book lover, there is nothing like awesome bookshelves or a fantastic reading nook.  There are tons of creative ideas out there and my only regret is that I can’t put them all in my house.  Some of my favorites designs are the converted attic space, the library bathroom, and any bookshelf that has a sliding ladder (I love those!).

Maybe you will find something here that you love too whether you are about to remodel, need shelving ideas, or just want to dream about the awesomeness that is the home library.

I have gathered some of my favorite bookshelves and reading space designs to share with you!  Check these out:


This cozy reading corner looks like someone made excellent use of their attic or loft space.  I love the fluffy rug.
