If you don’t read books and don’t care about the bookshelves don’t be too quick to close this article. Just think about it. What impression does a room full of books make? That’s right! It will immediately make you look smarter!

Just make sure to put some smart books about topics you barely understand like quantum physics, advanced mathematics or neuroscience. Of course, you might run into a problem if some smart ass tries to chit chat about something you have in your library. Don’t worry, just fake a phone call and when you finish, no one will ever remember the topic.

Now that we agree that it’s essential to have a bookshelf, let’s take a look at some of the most creative designs out there.
