Use for Deep Shelves?

Good Questions

Q: My new apartment has lots of built in shelving (hurray!). However, this wall has very deep shelves that I don't know what to do with. Books look out of place due to the very large shelves, and I hate the idea of 'double up' books regardless of how efficient it seems.

My only idea is to turn this area into a desk (the shelves are removable — I would have to remove the bottom two shelves and insert my own simple desk). Does anyone have any other ideas of what I can put here? I don't mean to shun all of my newfound storage, but I'm really clueless as to what will look good here! (Also, this faces my living room, so I need it to look attractive and orderly.)
