I just got chills. Just look at these wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves designed by Malcolm Davis Architecture. I wouldn’t even know where to start if these were mine. I know my books would barely take up a quarter of this unit. It would, however, give me an excuse to buy all those beautiful ceramic pieces I always bypass.

You know whose book collection might take up this entire wall? My girl Marilyn’s. She had a personal library of more than 400 books and was an avid reader.

    Yeah, I can understand that. To be honest, I didn't love the last seasons. But overall it's a great show!
    Round about now us bookish types tend to find ourselves out scouring the retail world
    not for flowers, not for chocolates
    but for the Valentine’s Day gift we know our sweeties will really like best: a book.
    After all, how better to convey our affection than with something romantic between two covers?
