The House Doctor is back. You wanted bookshelves and she’s here to give the people what they want.
Dr Manu had a lot of correspondence to deal with last week – and after looking through your comments and emails, she decided that shelving – bookshelves specifically was an area in which you wanted some home advice. So without further ado, take it away Dr Manu.
Books are always going to be cool. Sorry Kindle, but the shape, colour, texture and pattern of books make them elegant objects, as well as interesting reading material. The Kindle is somewhat…lacking. The more books the better – but how do you organize them? I’ve got a few ideas that will keep your books looking smart (and make you look smart by extension – even if you haven’t read them all).
THE MORE BOOKS THE BETTER – BUT HOW DO YOU ORGANIZE THEM?
1. IT’S A KIND OF MAGIC: CONCEAL SHELF BY UMBRA
Umbra’s conceal shelf is simple but dramatic: a thin metal shelf fixed to the wall which becomes invisible behind a stack of books. Pile them all up and there’s your trick.
And these Umbra conceal shelves are available on LLUSTRE.com now for an exclusive price. Snap ‘em up and suspend those books. Books are magic – I told you so.
2. FOR THE LAZY ONES – BOOKINIST BY NILS HOLGER MOORMANN
If you’re lazy and enjoy reading, this is paradise distilled into a single piece of design. Additionally, you can hide snacks in the arms for when you can’t even bear to leave you sedentary, bookish lifestyle to reach the kitchen. I can’t be held responsible if you never stand up again.
IF YOU’RE LAZY AND ENJOY READING, THE BOOKINIST IS PARADISE DISTILLED INTO A SINGLE PIECE OF DESIGN
3. FOR THE FIT ONES – CIRCULAR WALKING BOOKSHELF BY DAVID GARCIA
Combining reading with exercising is radical. Who would have thought of that? Could get a little dangerous. You might need a big space, long corridors or an entire loft, but this is such an unusual and exciting piece that you might go for it anyway. Keep fit with the classics.

4. FOR EMERGENCIES – PLUS ONE SMART BOOKSHELF BY MATTHIAS RIES
So you’ve just invested in the perfect bookcase and then spot a pile of extra books that you can’t file away. This is a quick and easy solution: a little insert for the books that never fit.
THE PLUS ONE SMART IS GREAT FOR BOOK OVERFLOW – THE SIGN OF A HEALTHY READER’S BOOKSHELF
5. FOR SMALL SPACES – TRICK BOOKCASE DESIGNED BY SAKURA ADACHI
You live in a cubicle. It can happen to anyone. I lived in a 3.5×2.5 sqm room for 6 months when I moved to London and I survived. If I only had this wonder I would have had the chance to store my books properly instead of under my bed and use the table as a desk or for my breakfast. Genius!
IF YOU LIVE IN A CUBICLE (NO JUDGEMENT) THEN THE TRICK BOOKCASE IS THE PERFECT STORAGE SOLUTION
6. FOR FLEXIBLE ONES – INGENIOUS BOOKSHELF BY LUKE HART
When I saw this for the first time, I had a flash from the past: me trying to fix the shelves of my bookcase according to the different heights and sizes: never enough to cover the length designated to the very high ones and way too many small ones. Put simply: this is a revolution. Anything can be accommodated thanks to the flexible properties of the shelves.
UNFORTUNATELY – THE INGENIOUS BOOKSHELF IS SO INGENIOUS THAT IT’S A LIMITED EDITION. LET’S HOPE FOR A RE-ISSUE
7. SERIOUSLY? COULD IT BE SIMPLER? I DOUBT IT – MINIMALISTIC BOOKSHELF BY ANA LINARES
Powder coated steel, maximum functionality with minimal amount of material and quite a remarkable effect: I can think of small corners in kitchens where storing all the cook books and recipes or little sad walls which at last have the chance to showcase some design credentials.
THE MINIMALISTIC BOOKSHELF: POWDER COATED STEEL, MAXIMUM FUNCTIONALITY WITH MINIMAL AMOUNT OF MATERIAL AND QUITE A REMARKABLE EFFECT
8. ONE OF THE FAVOURITE PIECES IN MY HOUSE – DVD RACK BY UNTO THIS LAST
In this cool shop in Brick Lane, everything is made to order. They remind me of the A-Team: ask them help and they will be there for you, smiling. Their motto is, ‘the pleasure of making things differently’. They use a special birch ply composite and all parts are cut from a sheet of material by digital tools and machines to reduce waste.
They also promote local craftsman workshops. What’s not to love?

Why it’s a bad gig: Not clear that Blake Bortles is a long term solution at quarterback and, as of now, it appears the franchise could be stuck with him for at least another season. Sophomore slump aside, Todd Gurley looks like the real deal at running back. So if a bat is a thirty two, thirty one, or a minus three, that’s, means that the length of the bat is a thirty two inch bat and it’s a twenty nine ounce bat, so that would be a minus three bat. Most players, especially young in age, from six or eight on up until ten or twelve, would tend to use bats that have a larger drop in the ounces.

A pair of his signed gloves are on display at Peter Harrison’s Phoenix gym in Glasgow, a sacred boxing retreat where McGowan spent time. Indeed, several groups have shown high efficiency transduction of both RPE and PRs with this serotype,15, 16, 17 and it has been shown to target GFP expression to cones when specific cone promoters are incorporated in the construct.18, 19, 20, 21The use of a constitutively expressed promoter in rAAV2 rAAV2 and rAAV2 vectors has been shown to drive expression of the reporter gene in PRs but also in the RPE and inner retinal cells.12, 22 To further restrict transgene expression to a particular retinal cell type, substantial effort is now being placed on identifying and validating promoters that are activated specifically in the cell of interest. The choice of a particular rAAV serotype coupled with a cell specific promoter is currently considered as the safest approach to achieve sustained transgene levels while avoiding off target expression.The availability of a panel of viral constructs with different promoters that can drive the expression of a transgene in both rods and cones, or alternatively, in subpopulations of these PRs, is a prerequisite for Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys
developing efficient and safe gene therapies.
