Oh man. This is the interior design equivalent of “ugg boots with skirts”. It just doesn’t make sense. As much as I appreciate a nice “visual kick”, this is just inconvenient. What if you want to read one of the books at the bottom? All hell would break loose just trying to pull one of those out! It would be like jenga, but sadly there are no winners in this cruel game. Except for entropy.
I guess you would just have to hope the top books are the best reads.
