Yeah, not really my style, I like having books you can read. One fun alternative to accomplish a similar look is to stack your books on a shelf with the pages to the front and the spine to the wall. I did this in a glass encased built in book shelf with books I had read (and didn't plan on re-reading in a while) and some oceany pieces. It created the same rustic artsy look without damaging books and it was easy to change it up.

I too have a big lab mix dog (who sheds A LOT) in a home with hardwood floors. I agree with the above in terms of keeping the dog clean and hands down recommend the Furminator as a de-shedding brush...it is a bit pricey, but amazing and well worth it. I've purchased large-stylish outdoor patio furniture cushions to use as dog beds, they have removable covers and are easy to wash. If you can swing it, it is worth purchasing attractive dog beds/bowls/accessories because you'll feel like your home is more put together than overrun by a dog.
