At home with books

Avid readers show how they house their collection of books

Chubby Hubby and wife devour books

Given their day jobs, it comes as no surprise that the married couple behind the popular food blog Chubby Hubby have a huge collection of cookbooks.

More than 1,000, to be exact, arranged by cuisine and mostly sitting on their custom-made, three- storey bookshelf in the living room.

This 6m-high metal bookshelf is a prominent feature in their 3,000 sq ft, four-storey terrace home in Cambridge Road.

Cookbooks are at the bottom six shelves and the upper shelves carry architecture, photography and art books. To access the higher shelves, you need to enter the third-floor bedroom of their five-year-old son, Toby.
