Dreaming Novel Things is a feature in which I discuss book related subjects, but in a creative way. I’ll use interviews, narratives and lists to talk about book trends, book opinions and bookish matters. If you have any book related subjects you’d like to see me discuss just leave me a comment below!

If you’re a fellow bookworm than chances are you have a lot of books in your room. But the question is, are the books happy? Is your room one they feel welcome in? If not then never fear for I have six easy tips to makes your room more book friendly.

#1. Post Your Favorite Quotes: Whether it’s on a tack board, taped to your mirror or painted on your wall– posting book quotes gives words the power to breathe. Your books will appreciate it.

#2. A Few Floating Shelves: You most likely have an overflowing book shelf, so why don’t you take some of your favorite books and display them on a few floating shelves with book ends. Most bookworms don’t get to use book ends because they have more than enough books.

#3. A Corner Shelf: Everyone overlooks corner shelves because they can’t hold many things due to their awkward shape. However, this is a great spot to display your book merchandise like your Jane Austen stationary or Daughter of Smoke and Bone inspired jewelry.

#4. Display Some Book Art: I know that not everyone is comfortable with book art but it’s another way to show your love of books and in turn make your books feel more welcome. I like to display mine on my dresser. Here are cool book art ideas:

#5. Book Posters: Most people are familiar with movie posters but they also make them for books as well. I found some really cool ones at Society6.

#6: Don’t Keep All Your Books in One Place: Along with the floating shelves and your book shelves, place books in other areas of your room. Keep a few on your desk, on your vanity table, even keep a few next to the T.V. That way everywhere you look, a welcome sight awaits you. Give those books moment to shine outside of the crowd.

    Some of those ideas sound like good reasons to keep a persons bedroom cleaned up and things in their proper place. I like the shelving ideas, functional, plus other decorative items can be placed.

  2. I love the idea of the bookish quotes board – I totally need to start doing that! Off to Target to get notecards and a cork board 😛

    I’ve been wanting some floating bookshelves for a while, but I can’t find any good ones. THE HUNT CONTINUES!

    • You should totally do it Kayla! I look at mine whenever I need inspiration, words fill me up and I look to them for all my answers. I’ve had trouble with floating shelves too but I very recently (as in yesterday) got some at Walmart of all places so I’ll keep you posted on how they hold up. Thanks for not abandoning me by the way, it means a lot! 😉

  3. Ahh, so many great ideas! I actually do have a corner shelf (that functions as my bedside table, sort of…) and am thinking of putting quotes onto my wall (just trying to find the best method.) And I definitely don’t keep all my books in one place. There are books EVERYWHERE in the house 🙂
