And, looks it is quite effective as well for certain selective books. While you fix it, keep in mind the height to pick the topmost book, and to return.

Make it as your height. If you use anything supportive, such as a chair, make sure your safety while climbing on the chair to manage your books at the top position.

– C.S. Lewis

So, you can keep those books you are going to read for the next time. Maybe you want to take notes from these.

Transforming DVD Racks into Bookshelf 

Why not transform your DVD racks for some books, like a bookshelf. Now, this the era of digital music and video. You can do this if you have one as the picture, where DVDs are arranged, or you can collect from a friend who is not using and thinking to throw away.

Here you can see, six, angled layers rack. In each, you can accommodate a few books according to the book size. But, it looks gorgeous to me.

You can look for the used one too. Many people sell too as a garage sale or something like that.

Other comforting furniture and accessories you can arrange and manage well as your taste and feel the way you want your reading place to be.
