The February 2009 issue of domino showcased the studio apartment of designer, Ryan Korban, and I just adore how these stacks of  books are used to display objects as well as to serve as art on their own.  Actually, I did something similar to this when I didn’t have any bookshelves.  This display goes to show you that it can look beautiful when done intentionally, not just because you lack shelving units.
