bibliophilia

according to wikipedia....

Bibliophilia is the love of books. Accordingly a bibliophile loves books, but especially "for qualities of format." A bookworm loves books for their content, or otherwise loves reading in general. Bibliophilia is generally considered to be an incorrect, but some would say merely recent, usage. The practice of loving or collecting books is dubbed bibliophilism, and the adjective form of the term is bibliophilic. Also, a bibliophile may be a book collector.

i believe dylan and i fall under this category..while we both love reading, we also love collecting books too..
we dream to one day have such an incredible library..wall to wall, floor to ceiling-full of books.
the most common books will surely be true crime, fashion, and environmental works. i would love to also have that ladder that is attached to the wall and slides back & forth, you know the one?

think this idea, but much more modern.

anyways, the following are from "apartmenttherapy.com" and are some pretty freakin awesome libraries, granted, they arent all in homes, but still...!this is a staircase in the picture above--incase the picture is too small to tell!

i love the spiral staircase in the one below..

this one's so cozy looking.
