Help Me Achieve Floating Shelves in This Nook?

Good Questions

Q: I want to install shelves in this little nook (28" wide). But I don't want ugly wall standards in the wall. I want to have a "floating" appearance or to have minimal hardware.

Similar to this. But the problem is the door jamb! I can't slide shelves in with the supports shown in the link. I need shelf supports that you can just put the shelf on top and then screw it in vs. having to insert the shelf into the support.

Do you have any idea where I can get such supports? OR... Do you have other ideas of how to have nice shelves in this nook?
