Despite the advent of e-books, many of us still value the tactile experience of flipping through a paper book. These creative bookshelves, then, are the perfect places to store our collections of little literary treasures.

There's nothing wrong with a heavy, old-school bookcase, but most of these bookshelves cater to modern sensibilities, using creative and diverse designs to become interior décor statements in their own right. If you know of any cool bookshelves or book cases that belong on this list, please add them!
