I got an email from one of my co-workers last week, with the subject line "I want this house!!!". The link she sent led to a story about the Shelf Pod house - built entirely of interlocking shelving for the owner's extensive book colllection. Even the stairs and furniture are constructed of the latticed grid shelving. I emailed her back: "I want it, too, as long as I can get someone else to do the dusting!" I forwarded the link to another book-ish friend, and she replied "Hey, Shelf Pod owner: Ebooks. Embrace the concept."
So that's two yeses and one no, by my count.
What's your opinion on the Japanese Shelf Pod house? Plenty of pictures here.
