I Like Homes Where Books Live

Books are very important to me. I'm one of those people who would rather sit at home reading than go to a party. I get lost in stories, and read coffee table books over and over again, scanning pictures repeatedly to glean every last detail. Books are good friends. They deserve good homes.
The Maison de Verre
in Paris (via NY Times
). This house is absolutely brilliant.

The Wall House by FAR
- unusual triangular approach. Fascinating.

House by Andrew Lister
, with rare bookshelf/window intermingling. Note that some shleves
can also be accessed from the second floor (if you have long arms).

In my house there will be books. Lots of them. Message to architect - be ready
