Top Items All Bookaholics Need

If you’re the biggest bookworm of all your friends, you know very well the trials and tribulations hoarding books can cause. Once, a professor told me that books did not count as hoarding, because it was knowledge, one way or another, that you were really hoarding, which should be done by everyone. If you’re like most of us book lovers, or your job is reviewing books, you may need a little bit of help organizing and finding the right places to put your books. This is a great way to add style to your home, and show off your impressive collection of books. There are also tons of other items that can help you on your way to obtaining a book friendly home.

The first, and one of the most important items that any book lover needs to have are shelves. You can find tons of different shelving units to fit your style at places like Macy’s, or you could do a little do it yourself project and make up one from a thrift store that fits your style exactly how you want it to. This is a great idea for anyone who wants specific colors or specifications for their shelving units. This is also a great idea to find quality specific shelving, like smaller shelving or units that can fit in odd places, without breaking the bank. Oftentimes, when you shop at thrift stores, you can also get real wood shelving units and much higher quality without breaking the bank. If you’re a real book hoarder, you may just want to look into building your own book cases. Not only will this be less expensive than getting something done for you, but you’ll also be able to build it to your specifications, and do everything you want for it. Having a huge shelving unit in your home is a great way to add dimension and an extra bit of interest without breaking the bank.

Another great items that every book lover should think about is lighting. Lighting is integral to reading and reading well, especially when it’s later at night, or when you just get home from work. Think about places that you like to read at home, and try to make it where you’ll have great lighting there. Most readers also perfect subdued lighting, without being too dim. This is a great way to make sure that you’re having the best experience reading in your home without breaking the bank. Lighting above or beside your bed without relying on huge lights, as well as bright lights can really make reading more enjoyable. If you often have a fuss with your partner about the lighting bothering them while they’re trying to sleep, you may want to try small book lights, which can really make it a much easier way to read wherever you are. You should also make sure that you have comfortable seating in your home and designate certain places that you love to read. If you’re like most book lovers, you can stay in one places for hours reading. Be sure that the place you pick is quite, and away from other interruptions, and you’ll be on your way to the best reading marathons ever.
