Mickey, either those books are heavy or your lens has a seriously weird type of distortion. Would it be true to say that it was the refrigerator that made you go cold on the idea?
I must confess that I was going to use books for an A-Z, but with each letter as the first word in the title rather than a dictionary or encyclopaedia marked A-Z. I was on the verge of sending for Xerxes by Jonathan Buckley from Abebooks (£2.04, postage paid) to complete the set. I will now shelve that idea, but not the book.
1972. My second attempt, after finishing my basement, as a DIY'er. Except for an electric drill all tools were manual. I panelled the room and built the shelves in what was to be our den/TV room. It urned out quite well and was used a lot.
After 42 years it has stood up very well but I should have used 3/4" plywood instead of 1/2"chipboard for the shelves. Hence the curvature.
In 2000 I got rid of the TV and much of today's reading is done on iMac in my office so my son's cat, Killer, gets almost exclusive use of the room now. I was thinking of getting him a satin smoking jacket with black velvet collar, lapels and cuffs. He really is a regal sort. But he doesn't smoke. However, he does enjoy the recliner which I never cared for. He especially likes lying there in the afternoon when the sun shines on it. He has a lovely grey suntan.
You have a sharp eye to have noticed those gentle arcs.

I have a problem. All in one picture huh? I managed to get my refrigerator and stove with some pots and a fry pan in one photo with some cropping taken with a 12mm lens. That's it. I tried putting a salt shaker and pepper mill on the stove but s and p are already there. So I removed them. I then put a glass of water on the stove for g and w. As I turned to look for something else I accidentally knocked it on the floor. That eliminated the glass and the water. I took a mop to clean up the mess. Its long handle struck the pot and knocked it against the fry pan. Both tumbled to the floor. So I got a towel which I am throwing in - surrendering.
