Buyer beware: this is a reprint of an earlier edition. The reviews and description do not make that crystal clear. It is a perfectly nice book with some good ideas about display and storage of books and printed materials, but nothing new from the last edition.
  • Dandr
Fantastic book with pictures on every page of unique and inventive ways (i.e. 3-D tree on a wall) to display your favorite books from just a few in a child's bedroom to massive libraries in homes. Every corner, hallway, ceiling, and wall of a home is explored to house your treasures. Loved it!
  • Kendis
NIce way to see how one can use one's library to decorate and live with books. Lavishly illustrated to show how it's done.
  • Mr_Mix
It's a nice book. A lot of full page color photographs, some with just a few books, however (which was kind of funny). Nice paper. The book is broken into chapters...bedroom, living room, hallway, kids rooms, etc. Different home and bookcase styles...something for just about everyone. It was interesting and a bit of information on how to take care of books was included as well.
  • Mr_Mole
I appreciate ideas on how to store my books keeping them convenient to find and enjoy.
  • Delari
I really like the book;the photographs were great. Being a lover of books I found it intriguing especially since I could see what a lot of them read. The author gives you a lot of great ideas on ways to store books and the comments are very interesting. What I would loved to have seen is more pictures of regular folks' libraries or collections. A lot of these pictures is of apartments or homes with about an acre of room. I have to stick them anywhere theres a space and doesn't make the wife mad.
I have several books in my library about decorating with books. I enjoyed"Books Make a Home" because the author is a lover of books in addition to being a designer.The text was interesting and informative and the [pictures were beautiful. My own design preference is traditional but I enjoyed all of the styles represented in the book, because of the way the books themselves personalized them. Very well done.
