If you’re a bookworm there are some fun and unique ways you can display your favorite pieces of literature to be incorporated with your home decor. Cut costs by making a wooden wine box display or using a vintage ladder to show off your books. One of my favorite ideas is the industrial pipe bookshelf that can be mounted to fit the nook and crannies in your home. Sometimes even a simple stack of color coded books can be enough to catch the eye. These 10 Creative Ways to Display Books in the Home give bookshelves a whole new meaning.
