I've always loved the super styled bookcases filled with interesting bits and antique leather bound volumes,

 but lately I've been loving the random stuffed shelves of people who love to read.  Which do you prefer?

Mine look more like the second picture at the moment...the bain of my existence. I love order...crave order...need order. This drives me crazy :-) Would love to have a bit of both...style and organization. I started putting my books in dewew decimal order...yes, yes I did :-) see here http://inherpeace-janetsjournal.blogspot.com/2010/07/facebook_13.html LOL and then the holidays hit. You've inspired me again I think :-) Have a great day!

My choice is the "love to read" - not only do the shelves look a whole heck of a lot cooler - they probably ARE a whole heck of alot cooler having read all those books!!!

and on that note, my shelves are pretty bare... boo hoo!

i prefer the over-stuffed bookshelf! i find that the books are much more interesting and eclectic, as opposed to the books you'll find on a neat shelf.

hmmm. like the chaos but prefer the styled, textured beaut of the other. i could look at that all day and be happy. :)
