We have books all over, but are primarily in the bedrooms.
My daughters books are in her room. My books are in the living room. I'd keep them in my room, but there isn't enough room.
I like having my books on display. My books are a part of me, like good friends. I only keep the ones that I love in some way or another. I find one of the best ways to get to know someone quickly, is to peruse their book collection.
everywhere... we have about a 1000 books or more
i have two tall bookcases in the computer area of my living room. they house the books i own - our library books are stacked on.in the entertainment center so that we dont lose track of them.i dont think having books around could ever be tacky lol. but i love reading so much.
When my kids were still at home we had books every where. The heck with looking tacky. The idea is to give them the opportunity and the encouragement to read at a moments notice. I used to read at least two books a day and the kids would make a nickel every time I lost a book and they had to find it for me. Sometimes I think they hid them just to make the nickel. But it also taught them to read as much as I did and they did very well. The important thing is access to the reading material without having to go upstairs or downstairs to the basement to look for a book. Have them handy and encourage them to look up things in books and then read them.
Ummm, every-frickin-where. we have thousands and thousands of books. Who cares if it looks tacky? The important thing is to have the books readily available for use, not buried in the back of the closet where they will not be read.
