Bookcases: If You Build/Buy Them, They Will Fill

A group "constructed" to gather the best in methods, materials, diagrams, plans, and designs for the literary lover in storing this precious commodity. DIY, y'all.

Also a place to share recommendations on the best places and types of book storage units to purchase; whether from IKEA, Target (tar-ghey), furniture outlet, or garage sale.

We all share the intent in expanding our limited living-space; unfortunately, this can end up bring with the somewhat questionable limits of horizontal plane cork-like board w/glossy texture that inevitably dips into a bendy anomaly that may, or may not, support the strength of said books which, well, weigh *a lot*.

Sometime the solidity of our books rivals that of any shelf they're stacked upon!
