Assuming you've gone through your books and decided which ones to keep, the next step would be to get some bookcases to hold them. I've seen too many books get damaged by being shoved into boxes or otherwise poorly cared for; if you treasure your books, please store them well.
While there are many places to get bookcases, I thought I'd point out some especially lovely options made by some talented woodworkers - mostly individuals and small companies.
The bookcase above is one of many designs available from McKinnon Furniture.
Brian Miles makes this oak bookcase.
This bookcase comes from Michael Colca.
Monk Furniture in the UK makes this bookcase; you can get the same style in a taller version.
And this is one of many options from Pomponoosuc Mills.
Hardwood Artisans has many lovely bookcase options.
Ben Barclay of Ben Barclay Woodworking makes each piece himself; this is one of three bookcase designs.
David Buckingham makes bookcases from imported recycled teak; they are sold by M.J. Higgins Fine Art & Furnishings.
This beauty comes from David Salmon in the UK.
This revolving bookcase comes from Richard Bissell Fine Woodworking; Richard makes non-revolving bookcases, too.
Dylan Pym in the UK made this impressive piece.
And this amazing piece comes from Trail Mix Studio.
