Decorating with Books

The Fort Wayne News-Sentinel has a few suggestions for decorating with books:
  • Books as wallpaper: Invest in a large number of leather-bound books in the same shade to create a wall of color.
  • A spot of color: Have a monotone room? Pick out a few books in a striking color to add dimension.
  • Books as furniture: Use a book, or a stack of books, to create end tables, coffee tables and pedestals.
There's also an puzzling suggestion to "Augment with books: Try hanging books over the rungs of a ladder, or lining the edges of a room with books." Huh?

What a silly recommendation - "hang books over a ladder" - who in the world has room for a ladder as a decorating item in their home??
