How to Recreate Palo Alto’s Rinconada Library in Your Own Master Bedroom

I recently got into a somewhat heated debate with a colleague about a very pressing current issue—e-readers versus paperbacks. While my opponent made some good points about accessibility, I couldn’t concede. You just can’t beat the feel of crisp pages and the smell of fresh ink—and those are things that your tablet just can’t provide (yet).

They’re seeking an at-home, master-bedroom library—and as a proponent of real books, I am only too happy to oblige.
