More Decorating with Books

Here are additional interesting ways to hide your book stash decorate with books. They can be put in lots of places, not just on shelves.  I used this set of Monica Ferris’ Needlecraft Mysteries as a display in my sewing room on the mantle over the fireplace.

A tiny quilting book is in the lap of a little bear in his rocker.

Up in the library, a trio of rabbits looks at a book with pretty watercolor pictures.

A dark corner of a Victorian shelf holds a stack of books waiting to be read.

Next to the gas fireplace is another tall stack, no they don’t get hot here.

The bedside table of the guest room holds a bedside reader, a big book with short stories for guests to enjoy.


Corners otherwise ignored become little places to store a few books in line for reading.


This little mouse reads his book on the shelf under a side table.


Hope that gives you some new ideas.  Now you have seen a large part of my To-Be-Read pile too.  The stacks are mostly in the queue.  I didn’t show you the 8 bookshelves and two other library tables holding more books.  Yep, I like books!!

Where do you put your books?

    Have you thought of making a lamp out of some “not to be read” books? I had hubby drill a hole through 4 or 5 books to make the base. Turned out real cute.

    I enjoy Jan’s books.

    Every time you feel yourself being pulled into other peoples drama, repeat these words “Not my circus, Not my monkey” (polish proverb)
