How Do You Stack Your Books?

While some of us don't really think about the look of books and objects on a bookshelf, many of us do. Especially when living in a smaller space and almost everything is within view all of the time.

Designing the look of the bookshelf will help the space to feel organized and streamlined. We just built an elfa office unit with multiple shelves and decided to place our books horizontally, in small stacks. It works for us since it feels organized and it's easy to grab a book when we need it.

What about you? Do you stack your books to create a harmonious design in your space?

Do you place them vertically, stack them horizontally or have a combination of both?
