Stephen King once said, “Books are uniquely portable magic.” We couldn’t agree more. For any book lover, cozied up next to a fire place with a hot cup of coffee and a great book is pretty much  heaven. Outside of the knowledge and entertainment books provide, there’s something uniquely special about the physicality of a book. The way it feels in your hands; the way the pages smell.

Books are special and what better way to honor  their eternal greatness, than by displaying them in a way that is worthy of them?

Here are 8 unique, DIY decor ideas for the book lover.
