Guillermo del Toro has a house just for his books…
Jealous. And I know if I became insanely rich, this is what the interior of my house would look like - every inch covered with books and pop culture collectible-type stuff.
From an article on io9.com from a Q & A session with Guillermo del Toro:
“He is, unsurprisingly, a big book nerd — fine, the word he uses is “bibliophile” — loving them both for what they contain and what they are as objects. “We are animalistic creatures,” he said. “We need talismans.” He said he went into debt so that he could have an entire house that serves only as a place for his books, with seven libraries in seven rooms. (“I”m a very, very organized hoarder.”) He’s currently building an eighth room, the “Rain Room,” where it will rain 24 hours a day — rain and lighting will always be lashing against this room’s windows, so that he can always write in a thunderstorm.”
