Two part question:
In an ideal world, what kind of book cases would you have? Built-ins? Barrister ones with glass doors? The cheapest you could find so you could have lots of them?
And … what kind of bookcases do you REALLY have?
I’ve seen pretty awesome bookshelves in various fantasy works which I’d love to have. Morpheus’ library in the Sandman comics comes to mind; not just books which are but which have been dreamt of…
I’d love to have lots of built-in bookcases. In reality I have a pretty haphazard collection of various bookshelves. But they’re still sturdy and able to carry the weight of hundreds of books and comics. Of course, more and more of the books I buy are in electronic format so they don’t require cases at all.
