I bought some shelves that are wire and screwed them into my wall above my cutting table. I have my books standing on those shelves. I bought the individual shelves at (ugh) Walmart for very little money. They are coated and colored white, which looks pretty in my yellow sewing room. I have three shelves that are each about 2' long. Then I have a dresser as tall as me and one side is drawers and the other is shelves and I put the rest of my books and magazines in there. It has a door on the shelf side. I bought it at Costco for $79. Very reasonable, I think anyway.
