A clever way to display your books

Would you ever display your books in a fireplace? 

It's a great way to kill two birds with one stone if you have a non-working fireplace. You have a place to stash your books and you fill that empty-awkward space (with something a little more surprising than candles).

We don't have a mantle in our apartment, but I would definitely try it if we did.

Kate Spade approves. As evidenced by their pop-up shop in England...
And just for fun, an artist's rendering of the same space…

Stay tuned for some more great ways to display your books in the next week.
