Place some of the books on the shelf horizontally instead of vertically. This arrangement allows for the horizontal books to hold up the vertical ones and provides a nice buildup (platform or stage) for a decorative object to enhance the bookshelf. Use decorative objects such as boxes, statues, souvenirs, memorabilia, and favorite collectibles interspersed with the books to add visual interest and appeal. Framed photographs, artwork, and small pieces of sculpture can also be used to break up the line of books on a shelf.
