Three non-traditional wooden bookshelves

Since I moved across the country with literally zero furniture, I've been stalking craigslist for bookshelves I could possibly fall in love with.

This morning I saw two on my Feedly though that have me thinking of taking a different route.

I love this collapsible bookshelf from Stephanie Hornig's Set collection. As someone who doesn't seem to stay in one space for too long, the functionality is pretty appealing. Plus, it looks awesome. (Found via Core77)

Since I'm renting, I probably wouldn't take this DIY route that requires putting a lot of holes in the wall... but it looks nice! Maybe there's some way I could meet this concept in the middle. (Found via Creature Comforts, DIY shelving tutorial from Almost Makes Perfect)

And since I'm finally going to be buying a bike soon, I've been thinking often about this Mikili Bike Rack. I probably wouldn't actually use it for my bike (dirt, etc.) but it is too perfect not to consider.

Basically I'm trying to avoid buying, once again, a bookshelf from the IKEA Expedit collection. They are perfect for records but not so much for books AND are incredibly heavy/not worth moving anywhere.

Help? Where did you find the perfect bookshelf for your home?

I've always liked the look of bookshelves that didn't have a traditional shape. Those collapsible shelves quite fit the bill. Plus and most importantly, they can be easily taken down and carried to a new residence.

I saw similar foldable and flexible books racks at and I am going to get them for the next trade show in which I am going to exhibit some of the best literature from different countries.
