If you have the space, you might want to consider buying 2 identical ladders. You can buy long planks of wood for the shelves, and create a whole system. To really add flair, have the ends of the planks extend past the ladders on both ends. Have the planks cut so that the bottom plank is the longest, and then shorter and shorter. The end effect will look like a huge ladder!
The second step in building your ladder shelves is to take a few measurements, you will need to know the distance between each rung level, this is so that you can cut out your shelves to the right size. After you have the correct measurements, you will need to add about 16 to 17 inches to the length values, each platform needs to be a little longer than the distance between each rung. Don't forget to add up all the lengths and buy enough wood board for all of the shelves, you might be able to get wood for free at your local landfill site.
Apart from books and other reading materials, one can place other items in their leaning bookcase. Perhaps to use it as a medium for placing their collection of trinkets which they would like to display in their homes for guests to see. This is something which can turn from a regular utility shelf to a wonderful conversational piece. It is no surprise that a lot of people are pleasantly amused with this kind of bookcase. It is something which can not be considered as conventional but is regarded as something modern and functional regardless of the type of room it is placed in.
