A good way to figure out how large a bookcase you need is to measure the linear footage of the books you own and then calculate how much footage is available on the bookcase you are looking at. Take into consideration how you are going to adjust the shelves for the various sizes of your books. If you have lots of small paperbacks youll have more running feet of space for them if you double up the shelves. In that case, you might want to see if you can order an additional shelf or two.
Some bookcases have open shelves on top and doors on the bottom, which is very handy for storing games, art supplies, whatever you might need but want to keep out of sight below and display books on top.
Now, with the advent of flat TVs, you can use bookcases to surround your TV, pretty much like an entertainment center would. You could even rest the TV on the bookcase, but you would probably still need to bolt it to the wall for security.
