What a wonderful space for books! It feels very M.C. Escher-esque because of all the different levels and it has an overall asymmetrical feel to it. I'm not usually a fan of things that are not symmetrical, but this is an exception. I love the spiral staircase on the side. Plus, there's a ladder and we all know about my love of bookshelves and ladders. :)
I think I'd be distracted the whole time if I were to read in that chair though. I'd just stare at all my lovely shelves... and probably daydream the afternoon away.
