You can buy bookcases that have open shelves. Again, we stress the benefit of adjustable shelves. This will allow you to store any size book or other item you chose to display. Most bookcases are 12 deep. A way to store larger items, such as albums, pictures, larger books, and knickknacks, is to look for bookcases that are up to 18 deep. You can also buy bookcases that are shallow-about 8 deep-that can be used for paperbacks exclusively or for CDs.
The bookcase should be open to better display your favorite books. Another design is to build doors at the bottom around 30 tall for storage of less used books. Taller bookcases can include a built in ladder for those people who have large libraries.
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.
