Where do you keep books at your house?

I'm thinking about moving the kids' bookshelf down to the livingroom so we read more. Will that look tacky? Where do you keep the books @ your house?

 My kids have books all over the place. They have a big box full of them in their room, and 3 or 4 more big boxes in the living room. My books are all on a built in shelf in my room.

Every where, lol. We're a reading family. I have books in the living room, kids rooms, basement in boxes, right now there are stacks on top of our fridge, on our coffee table.

If there is a shelf, there are books on it.

My kids have their books in a bookshelf in their bedroom and hubby and i have our books in a bookshelf in our bedroom.  We also have kindles which helps cut back on how many actual books we have to make space for.

Not at all tacky. It would be inviting!  :-)

We have books in every room on shelves or tables.

We move a book shelf in our room with my books. We have 2 closets in the up stairs loft area, one is a normal towel closet which we use for that and the other is what I would think is a sheet closet, its normal wide but only 8 inches maybe deep on all the shelves so I put the books and board games in there...

My girls have thier bookshelf in their room and my son has his book shelf in his room. My actual books have all been donated either to my children or elsewhere and all of my books (i have over 1000) are Ebooks and on my ipad.  However its time to buy a new shelf for my girls since they are now out of room.  I'm debating on a 2nd shelf or just  a much larger shelf then what they have now.

My son has a bookcase full of his books in his room.

We have a bookcase in the living room/dining room area (between the two spaces, kinda) with adult books and my daughter's books.

And one in the basement with heavier reference books on the bottom and other stuff on the upper shelves.
