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?

We keep them all over. I have most in the playroom but we also have some in the study and in the kitchen.

Prior to having a study I kept their bookcase in the living room closet.

I have a 1.5 yr old so we don't have a HUGE collection yet. All of his are in the living room in a collapsible bin I got from target.

My girls have a big book box in their room, I have a bookshelf in the family room/ sunroom. Not tacky. :)

We have books everywhere, bookshelves everywhere. Even in the kitchen (most of those books are cookbooks and home remedy books though).

I have a bookcase in my bedroom that's 5 shelves and is full with double rows of books. My son has a two shelf one in his room full also. Most books we have on his iPad, or my kindle. So we no longer buy paperback books for the most part. I don't think it looks tacky in the living room as long as you keep them neat.

I don't generally have a lot of books, Im a huge believe of the public library, and the books I do buy I donate, unless its a special book.

Those are in my bedroom as are my son's. DH has his in the den.

My son has been having a hard time in school so I was thinking the books downstairs might help is ALL remember how fun reading is.

Their books are in their room and mine are in my room.  If I had a formal place to put a book shelf where I know it wouldn't end up being a mess, I'd have one downstairs.  That's for later on down the road when the youngest is much older.
