21 Decorating Ideas Every Bookworm Will Love

Book lovers are notorious hoarders. We pile books on our nightstands and squeeze them underneath our beds. We fill up bookcases and create sky-high stacks on the floor. Instead of hiding books in every nook and cranny, let's celebrate this literary passion in our home.

Wear your library card loud and proud with these 21 book-inspired decor ideas. Between cozy reading nooks and gorgeous home libraries, you'll be bookworm-ing out in no time.
