What to do with books

Since we have started homeschooling the books in our house have started to breed. It seems as though every time I turn around there are more books. Right now half of my dining room table is covered with books. I eat on the corner of the table surrounded by books. And the bar is mostly covered with books as well. There are some on the floor too. We got two pieces of furniture last year to try and accomodate all of the new items that we have aquired for homeschooling. However it seems as though it is not enough. So today I spent some time perusing decorating blogs to see what other people use to hold their books. This is what I would love.
Isn't it lovely? However, I noticed that people don't keep books in their front rooms. This is very confusing to me. I grew up surrounded by books pretty much everywhere. I think that these bookcases would be great in any living area. What better to talk about than books!

We have some shelves similar to that -- only they are the cheaper, not quite as pretty, Ikea version. :-)

I will have to look up the ikea ones. These bookcases are beautiful, but way out of our price range as well. I have been thinking about trying to get some unfinished ones and paint them gray. Thanks for the idea!
