Books seen in new ways: the Book Drum World Map (popular books mapped to their locations, and more). The Infinite Helical Bookcase. CodexCloud (store, search and share your eBooks online). Also: galleries and blogs of unique bookshelves, Bookshelf Porn and BookPorn.

Infinite Helical Bookcase requires a recent, WebGL-enabled browser and graphics card; Book Drum World Map requires Google Earth plugin. While some of the bookshelf sites have "porn" in the URL, they are not explicit, and should be SFW; also, previously.

Infinite Helical Bookcase

First, a truly infinite library is a horror story concept.
Girst, a truly infinite library is a horror story concept.
Hirst, a truly infinite library is a horror story concept....

Second, I can't help imagine one those bookstore ladders that clamp onto the shelves and roll along them. Hop aboard, begin to slide down and around -- whee!

There are more books in my office building than in yours.

These are all great. Thanks.

We should probably get an NSFW tag on the last link though, because of naked.

I think you mean Infinite Helical Bookstore.
I'd appreciate a compendium of all Google Books' actually free books.
