If you’re a book reader, or even if you’re just a book buyer, the nice people at IWOOT (I Want One Of Those) have a couple of gift ideas.
First there’s a floating bookshelf disguised as a French novel that screws into the wall - no visible means of support - and allows you to stack other books on top. Maybe it would allow you to get rid of the pile dominating your bedside table, or down on the floor?
And if you’ve just got rid of a pile of books on the floor, why not replace them with a solid book stool, described on the IWOOT website as:
“Hollow and yet hefty, this resin moulded and exceedingly realistic pile of books makes a brilliant stool for the computer generation - a gentle reminder that the printed page still has a place in today's digital world, even if it's for your bum.”
