We have a bookcase filled with books in our family room, it was the standard baltic pine bookcase, and of course now painted white. We have some lovely books, mostly childrens story books chosen for my boys by their Nanny (hi Mum).
So, how do you store your books, are they in a pile, stacked in the cupboard, or do you have beautifully made inbuilt shelving. What about a provincial type wardrobe converted to a bookcase. Doors could be closed, and you could do something creative on the inside of the doors.

I absolutely love this chandelier. Enjoy your day.
