We've seen beautiful libraries lined with books from all over the world, but let's face it—most of us can't really enjoy that sort of luxury at home. That being said, even a fairly modest home can be made to feel far more bookish with the addition of some wall-to-wall bookcases. This Flavorwire article filled with dream homes for book lovers has some truly inspirational ideas for anyone with a literary fascination. Most of these places look like normal houses that just happen to have some serious book readers as residents.

If you've ever considered making a similar adaption to your home, there are additional benefits beyond having your own awesome library: Books are also an excellent source of insulation. So the more bookshelves you own, the cheaper your cooling and heating costs will be!
