Can You Ever Have Too Many Bookcases?

For a librarian and a book collector, the idea of more shelves in our future home is always welcome. We got a surprise the other day, something that’s been on the plans all this time, but that we didn’t fully realize: a built-in, floor-to-ceiling bookcase on the way into the kitchen.

Oh, imagine all the cookbooks I can stack up there! The shelves aren’t especially deep (12” max), as they flank an angled wall, but that’s a nice size to mix up books and decorations. I think we’ll most definitely have to do something fun with the back of the shelves, like covering with wallpaper to match our built-in-bar (you can see that above in the plans; it’s also angled and labeled “storage”) or painting it a special color. Majestic yellow, anyone?
