Book Storage Inspiration

Most us of readers aren't rich and can't afford a library devoted solely to books, which is why we have piles of books in every room, usually with no designated space. I've shown my way of dealing with books in my own house (see below) but I am now out of space on these two bookshelves on the sides of my TV.

So now I'm looking for additional book storage, something small or maybe skinny because I don't anticipate getting double the amount of books I have now. Here are some inspiring images from around the web.
